Decisions, Decisions…

20 01 2010

In the second week of the contest, we’ve once more been flooded with great entries. It’s enormous fun to read the openings of your stories, and I know it’s very difficult for Rachelle to choose just one finalist each week.

It’s also a challenge for me to choose an entry each week for a mini-critique – because I’m looking for an entry which can be an example of a common difficulty, something that many writers struggle with. It’s often easier to see and understand a problem area when we see an example in someone else’s work, rather than our own – so the hope with the mini-critique each week is that it will help all participants to check that this difficulty doesn’t show up in their own work.

We’ve just added Brenda Chin, Harlequin Blaze Senior Editor, to our great panel of agents and editors who will be reading and commenting on all the finalists’ work – and there are more to come! Check them out on the agents/editors page.

So to end the suspense – here are this week’s winners!
