MONDAY MUSING: The Bridgeport Prize 2011

Well, last week I was given a piece of paper by my lovely English Literature teacher Seely Westley; it was a entry form to the Bridgeport Prize 2011. It's a competition that would see me potential win £5000 for a 1st prize entry and have me realise my dream of publication and to Miss Westley I am rather grateful.

 However, I'm not entirely sure if I want to enter. I'd personally enter two catergories: Poetry and Short story. Poems a max 45 lines and Short Story at 5000 words. I just don't know if I'm good enough; if I can do it. I want to, I want to give it my best shot. Yet, if I fail then what?

Is that it? Should I give up now?

 I'm not totally sure but if I can get ten grand for it then I may as well try, right?
Well, who knows.
