Hey guys, RESULTS ARE IN!
The winner is….
The judge had this to say about our piece:
While the pink and white eraser does work for an ‘ordinary’ symbol, it loses a lot of impact because of the lack of story flow. The beginning of the story seems to be focused around a deadline for an essay, but by the end, it’s about the narra…[Read more]
(That’s kind of what I was thinking, @nuetrobolt)
Lance couldn’t move his body. His skull pressed against the hard plastic of the broken headrest. His shoulders pressed into the suddenly soft cushion behind him. Static crackled over speakers, but the captain didn’t speak. Lance managed to turn his head enough to look out the window. The water…[Read more]
(sorry to make you do rework lol) But YEAH GO YOU. Rewriting first lines is scary. You’re a brave human.
@graceabound2129 @neutrobolt, YES, I got it submitted. I’m sorry for the late response. It’s been a crazy weekend. But it’s all submitted and it’s all good and ALSO I READ IT AND I LOVED IT.

So, if you query three agents and one gets back right away asking to see more, you…[Read more]
Wow, that’s a horrible way to watch such a climactic movie. I’m sorry for your loss, @corkybookworm.

wow if we knew how to do that wouldn’t we all be a lot better off? I can’t give you a straight answer, but I can tell you that the newsletter is an important part of building an audience and Nadine Brandes has the best newsletter I’ve ever read. If you haven’t already, subscribe to it and read it every time it comes out. See what you can…[Read more]
Ro had a great point. Steve Laube’s blog is basically the font of wisdom for anyone looking to go the traditional publishing route. Check it out here: https://stevelaube.com/blog/
I’m hoping to get traditionally published some day. Part of it is honestly just that I want that accomplishment on my record. Part of it is that I want the…[Read more]
