It's all about preparations for participating in different contests. Let's hear your story.You have heard the announcement of the contest, read the details carefully and thought for a while. Yes, you have guessed it right! I am talking about the different contests that ISC announces periodically, it may be about writing poems, stories, articles or solving riddles. It's quite different to write something about a given topic and writing threads or articles of your own choice.
As a new member, I find the contests interesting and try to participate in few of them. Now, when you are writing for a contest it's like writing essays during the exams that we have all did in our school/college days. At that time we used to read essays in different books and sometimes suggestions were given prior to the exams. Nowadays, we read many a things in newspapers, magazines, books and of course in the internet. It fascinates me to know about what others do to get ready for the contest. Some people can write very fast on any given topic just like impromptu speech, others take a while to think for it and then write. Suppose you are not familiar with the given topic, but want to participate in the contest, as if you are writing the exam, in that case how will you go about it? Are you going to think for a long time to get some idea or instead search the internet about things related to the topic?
