Gold Key Winner Lydia asked Ned about comparing your work to others and having it shared with the world.
I enjoy writing because it is my way of expressing myself and getting things out there. I wrote a short story for the art and writing award and got a regional gold key. As I was looking at all the winners, I got discouraged because how do I know if mine is any good? I want to be published some day- and hopefully someday I can turn my short story into a novel. How old do you have to be for all of that to work? How does all of it work? Where did you start? I really want my story to be heard by the world.
