I just honked!

Okay, fine, I did not drive la. You know how horrible I am at changing gears. Anyway, I just found out Lydia Teh's blog. Lydia Teh is the author of 'Honk! If you are a Malaysian.' I bought the book two months ago I think. I have yet to finish reading it because the school work is piling up, at times, I feel like I don't have time to even breathe but I still do. As I was feeling a little lucky, I joined Lydia's contest and hoping to get the RM30 voucher. If I can get it, I can get May Zhee's book (read: Vanitee Bee) with that voucher. I just come across May Zhee's blog too. I am sure my close friends know that I am thinking of being a writer but I am not really sure about it as I don't think I have wonderful English like them. But oh well, they keep me inspired.

Anyway, talking about Lydia's contest, its actually pretty simple. All you have to do is hop to her blog and place ur name on that particular post and she will draw out the winner. Go here for more information. I am now more interested to read the local author's books as it makes my dream to be a journalist or an author much more realistic. I don't know if I can ever be a journalist as I know, if compared to so many people out there, my English is even less than average, pushing aside the feeling of being average in me.

One thing I know very well about myself is I have horrible range of vocabulary. I don't read much. Not even newspaper. The only thing I read most right now are blogs and some books I bought recently. How I wish I can write as beautiful as they are. I am more to the boring-nothing-new writer. I write about things that happen around me with no flowery language AT ALL. But still, they will keep me motivated. =)

Hi Ping Ping. Thanks for blogging about the 10K contest. Good luck with it.

About your dream to be a writer, work at it. Read a lot and practise your writing. You will improve. May Zhee has a second book out, Sweetheart from Hell.
