That would be me LOL
I didn't believe it when I won the award, even when I had the certificate in my hand.
I didn't think I had a hope-in-hell of winning a #writing contract with Upwork. Why would I believe it?
I was competing against people against people who had degrees, years of experience and had been on courses.
Me - just a vivid imagination - driven by coffee and fuelled by a schoolboy's dream, supported all the way by a few loyal friends, who never doubted my ability.
Despite a lack of qualifications and money for eye-catching book covers or publicity, I triumphed by the sheer wildness of my weirdly wired mind.
In the end, I beat my own theory that to have an opportunity, you need the money and education to push yourself out there.
