A time that I can say was a loss for me would’ve definitely been the time I lost a poetry contest. I wasn’t crushed that I lost the contest or anything but I was a little upset thinking back on it. I felt as if the people who won shouldn’t have won (I can be a bit of a sore loser) but not in this scenario. I thought another contestant should’ve won.
Her poem was very descriptive and it took me to a new place in writing I had never been before. Her writing was unlike anything I had ever witnessed. She was an inspiration to say the least. After the contest I gave her my praises because I was so blown away. What I regret that I could say was a loss was not keeping up with her writing. I could’ve asked if she had a blog or any social media so that I could keep in touch.
This actually never really occurred to me until this moment when I’m actually sitting here reflecting on that day. Which is why I can say that was a definite loss for me. Writers learn and grow from each other daily so it would of been cool to learn about her writing process.
