The Child Contest


Blog Posted:10/11/2017 3:26:00 PM

I was impressed in the last contests with the entries but not so much so far this time because I am pressed to find one that is worthy-----I asked you to write to YOURSELF as a child and even at that, be original.

Maybe the use of Dramatic Monologue would have helped. It would most certainly have pointed people in the direction of what you are aiming at.
