Every writer is competing with their own published work. They want to be the best in their next work. But what are the factors that give them this energy? There must be some network of writers where new ideas generate and they are charged up to give their best shot. The best way to create good work is writing for competitions. Writing competitions are the best motivation for every writer because:

It challenges your writing ability

In writing challenges there is always a topic or many topics to choose from. This is the best part because at times, a writer wants to write as a habit but is short of topics. When you get a topic to write on, you feel stimulated. You choose the best one close to your niche and start working on it.

You come out of your comfort zone

But not all times you get a topic of your choice. So, what happens when you are bound to write but nothing seems to be striking? You get out of your comfort zone and your brain exercises. The brain is on high alert to search fodder for the new topic which is different and challenging. There is a sort of electric energy inside that pushes you to research and work towards winning that particular competition.

Deadline to complete

Writers are creative people. And creativity comes with its own time. It can be in the middle of a night or never in days to come. But when you are in a competition, you have a deadline. This ensures that you finish your work in the given time limit. If you are really serious, you finish it in time and feel superb!

Rewards always motivate you

Competitions are always accompanied by rewards. This is the most engaging part for a writer. There always needs to be an encouragement so as to why a writer should manipulate their talent and write for different topics. These rewards inspire to keep writing for different competitions.

Keep the fire of writing alive

Every competition gives you a reason to write and encourages winning. You get an objective in front of you and the zeal to achieve your goal. The fire inside you is constantly increasing and you work with more power. Once you win, you get the motivation to take up another competition. You don’t fear rejection anymore.

Review peers’ work

There is so much inspiration around the world. Every writer has a different way to narrate the same story. This is the best creativity in a writer. Competitions also give a chance to read your competitors’ work and see what is their inspiration. Talent has many faces and so have the writers. There is always something to learn from others’ work. A writer is constantly working upon their skills to excel. Many disappear in this competitive world. Only the ones who survive are recognised.

A couple of friends asked me why I attended the writing workshop by Writersmelon, when I have been writing for over a decade. (1) Always a good idea to update your skills (2) It helped! I’ve already seen a shift in my process. (3) It was fun! I can’t wait for them to do more of these because it got me out of a writing funk, and gave me that much needed push. All writers needs that from time to time!

The writing workshop by Writersmelon and Samarpita was phenomenal in teaching the craft. They not only explained the theoretical part of writing novel/short story but also rigorously worked with us to practise. I have had so many doubts before about plot development but their exercises and crisp way of explaining the nuances cleared up my doubts. I would love to join any writing program by this duo and 100% recommend it to anyone who wants to write a novel.
