Keep Track of All the Writing Contests You Enter
I love writing contests but I tend to be a bit sloppy with my organization.
If you’re anything like me, I plan and think about writing contest for a long time and then enter at the last minute. Sigh…
This leaves me scrambling to scribble things down on a paper that I’ll probably toss. So get yourself organized for the 2022 writing contest season.
Here’s a free tracker that you can use. It’s my gift to you.
Why Enter Writing Contest?
I get this question a lot and my main answer is I enter writing contests because they’re fun, challenging, and they give me a sense of accomplishment.
Also: Writing Contests can also…
- Add to your resume/CV.
- Give you industry recognition.
- Push your creative limits.
- Allow for a sense of pride.
- Give you a break away from your ordinary writing.
- Let’s you dream of winning.
You can make a writing contest about anything you want.
Here are a few contests that will open in the first couple of months of 2022. Put them in your Contest Tracker and make sure you submit on time. I hope you never miss a deadline again.
What writing contests would you recommend? Please let me know in the comments.
