Sigh…I did not progress to the next round of the NYC Midnight short story competition. But I’m okay with that. The feedback I received from the judges was kind of what I expected. For 2500 words my plot was a little unwieldy.
(Be sure and check out their site. They run many different types of writing contests over the course of the year.)
On the other hand, I have a great outline in the making for a much longer story. Maybe even a better story. 😉
Do I think it was worth entering? Yes, I do. Would I enter again? Yes, I would. The writer’s forum was a great place where the writers shared their stories and gave feedback to one another. You didn’t have to participate. I didn’t post my story because I was feeling a bit shy. I offered some feedback and that was fun.
So now its back to the regularly scheduled writing program. The one where I try to make time for it to happen. Wish me luck. I’m going to need it.
PS. I may post my short story after I finish its revision.
