Observations on Week 7 Entries

25 02 2009

Whew. I think this was one of the toughest weeks yet to pick just one winner!

I noticed that quite a few of you who previously submitted the same entry in past weeks, made changes to the version you submitted this week. Some of you chopped off the unnecessary backstory and started with dialogue. Some of you deleted the unnecessary details before or after your dialogue. And some of you made more subtle tweaks.

I’d love to think it might have been because you applied some of the lessons learned from Leigh’s mini-critiques – and the feedback given by other readers and writers. 🙂 But, regardless, the changes you made were right on and made your submissions great reads! Many of you were tied with this week’s Finalist.

So, major kudos to all of you — and to the rest of you who flooded our inbox with great submissions.

After much agonizing, we bring you this week’s winners:

Week 7 Finalist
Week 7 Mini-Critique Winner


P.S. By the way, this is the final week to enter the contest. So, if you’ve been holding off on entering, please send us your entry today!
