Feeling Really Elated

I just entered a poem into a local library poetry contest. I'm really psyched and am feeling really good about it. I hope it wins. I don't know if it's the best poem I've ever done but I really do like it a lot. My fingers are crossed. It would really mean a lot to me if it wins.

And now the elation is gone. Feeling kind of blah now. That didn't take long. :(

Thanks. I have mixed feelings about the poem now. Not sure about it. But I'll see what happens. Last year I didn't win anything--not even honorable mention. But I don't think my poem last year was as good.

I don't know. I almost rather lose. It's so much easier to feel disappointed than proud. Proud isn't something I'm particularly familiar with. I feel much more at home sulking and feeling inadequate.

I'd rather not share it until after the contest is over.
