A Contest Final and Good Feedback to Share

We all want to hear it when we’ve done a good job. Equally, although it’s not always pleasant, we seek to know where we should improve. Feedback’s important.

 

This is one of the reasons I like writing contests. Because the judges aren’t familiar with me or my work, they’re candid. I can trust their comments. Usually they encourage as well as correct. Exactly what I was looking for when I entered the 2016 Pages from the Heart Contest.

I was a little nervous because this was my first contest in the published author division. I still have some of the I’m-playing-with-the-big-kids trepidation, but I’m pleased to announce that my piece, Nothing Secret made the finals!

Here are just a few of the judges’ comments–

INTERESTING PREMISE AND WORLD BUILD

Honestly, I’m not usually a fan of paranormal stories, but this one had me intrigued and yes, I would like to finish this story as well as more stories by this author.

LIKEABLE HERO

Yes!

 

There is a lot of tension due to the fact that her memory keeps getting wiped.

 

I want to know what happens! Great job!

 

GOOD ENTRY– WOULD HAVE LIKED TO READ IN ITS ENTIRETY

 

In addition, the judges made a couple of good suggestions and caught some errors that slipped by me. Thank you, judges!

I’ll fix those things and you can look forward to seeing a bit of Nothing Secret soon.
