I just lost another (only my second) short story competition. Both times I have been beaten by something I thought was a bit naff, and exactly the sort of thing I expected, a.g. rubbish 'trendy' writing. Does this mean I have bad taste and can't see that the other people's stories are good, or is the system beating me down?

I'm honestly not bitter. But I got beaten by an old lady writing about the injustice of corporations, in a satirical way, read out by a poet, who was meant to be some sort of bigwig, but looked/sounded/acted/dressed as if he was just playing up to the ideas of what 'literary types' should look like.

Am I an idiot, and need to grow thicker skin, or is it possible that I'm in some way right, and the other people's stuff is crap, and that's just the way it goes.

I'll quit whining now.

I thought the same when I read the title
We ain't pushing the boundaries, we're blowing them up.
We ain't trying to expand the scene, we want the scene to erupt.

Well, on the plus side, you've also just lost the game! Not playing the game? Look it up, or ask somebody.

I was beaten in my english exam last year by ONE MARK by another girl who wrote a story which everyone thought was utter crap (cliche similes, metaphors, poor paragraphing and all) compared to the other stories.
