What the hell. I’ve already sent Forever Kind of Guy in to the Great Expectations contest. May as well send The Reluctant Groom, too (especially since they extended the deadline to 1/4). I entered it last year, and would just like to see if I’ve improved it any with the edits. The entry is now with my CP’s. Then I’ll polish once more.
Just in case any writers ever read this: the NTRWA’s GE contest is great for feedback. They encourage the judges to write comments on the MS itself, or on the score sheets. There’s separate categories and they are broken down into specific things for the judge to look for and score. It helped me tremendously last year.
Better go work on the query letter that goes with the entry. They also critique it. 🙂
I woke up at the buttcrack of dawn this morning. Couldn’t sleep, so I got up and made myself a lovely spreadsheet to plot out my next book. Then I blew up the individual chapter pages so I could fill them in, scene after scene. Hope this works for me. I need some kind of system. What I’ve been doing isn’t working.
