I often remind myself that if my writing makes any difference to even one person and makes them think again or impacts them positively, then I’d consider my writing a success.
Recently, though I was surprised and thrilled to note that my writing is deserving of a nomination for the prestigious Orange Flower Awards for the category of Social Impact.
While the nomination itself is a huge award, now it has got me all excited, especially because it is not just one but multiple nominations.
I honestly don’t think that much of my writing so when something like this happens it gets me all excited and makes me realize the value of what I do. (And, if you’re a writer, and if you know me at all, you’d know how much I need to be reminded of that. Self-doubt, thy name is Piyusha Vir )
To make your votes count, please vote for each nomination individually. Fortunately, for me, it means that cumulatively I get more votes. YAY! YAY! YAY!
