I just sent my first entry ever to a writing contest. The jubilation is not for having crafted a work of art and got all the editing and punctuation right. It is to celebrate the joy I am feeling for having been able to achieve this. Never mind if I managed to get only a couple of hours of time to write, edit and send on the day of the deadline. Like all feelings of firsts, this is unmatched. I could not have done it without my friend Shruthi's prompting. Thanks Girl!
