  1. Lovely thing to dream of. I hope you get it someday. Yes, everyone always says people experience overnight success. They always forget all the hours and time a writer spends writing before they break through, if they do.

  2. Overnight success is a far fetched dream. Most importantly, the writer still gets the prize. He/she couldn’t control what others thinks. Wonderful story! I stared at the picture for the whole day, still couldn’t think of 3 lines to write a story. I gave up! Haha! You are marvellous! 😀

  4. How often has this happened in real life – every week probably. I think it’s more glamorous and exciting for the media to dub someone an ‘overnight success’ – ‘success from years of hard work, sleepless nights, ignoring your family and total obssession’ doesn’t have the same ring to it 🙂

I'm all ears. Tell me.
