I have been putting off writing my first novel for quite some time, focusing on every other type of writing instead. This contest just might be the very thing to get me started.
My best friend is a poet and she is horrified by the thought of slamming out 50,000 words in one month. But I understand her viewpoint because she deliberates over every single word in a poem and a single poem can take her a year to craft sometimes.
I guess that's why there's not a similar competition for poets, although it might be really interesting!
