I don't know why I am trying so hard at improving the short stories I wrote because no matter how much I will try to improve them, there still won't be good enough for competitions (even minor competitions)
I just don't think short stories will ever be my forte.
So Why bother?
I am not sure.
I have been thinking about that.
I just can't accept the idea of something unfinished. I guess.
It is writing. It is an exercise. So I should try harder.
After all Thomas Fuller said:
“All things are difficult before they are easy.”
And William Ellery said:
“Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.”
And those short stories are definitely the cause of my conflict.
