  3. I want to thank Authoress, Jenny and everyone who took time to give feedback on my entry. I've been hooked on the SA contests for a long time, and I've learned so much. I feel so lucky that I got to participate this month.

    It's been a wonderful experience, and I'm really excited about the next steps.

    Thanks again!

  4. How many pages is a partial?

    Thanks Authoress! It was great feedback.

  5. Congrats to all of you :D

  6. D'Ohh!
    Oh well, it was a fun contest.
    Congrats to the winners!
    Thanks for letting me enter!

  7. Fantastic job to everyone! I felt so lucky to participate in this contest. Huge kudos to Authoress and Ms. Rappaport for this great contest.

    Also thank you to all who helped me on my entry (#37)


  8. I wish I could have participated, of course, but I still learned a lot by reading the entries and comments. This blog is such a great resource.

  9. Congrats to the Winners!

    This was an educational experience.

    It was interesting to see how the various writers responded and critiqued other writers. It seemed that children story writers did not like stories that used too many adjectives, for instance. Which, for children, I would think you'd want to write very simple and direct.

    People seemed to comment more constructively on their own genre submissions and were more critical to genres they could not relate to.

    Just my observation.

    I do think some people need to add what was good about a submission too.

    Over all, this was a great opportunity!

  10. I didn't have time to comment (or enter!) this time, but congrats to all the winners and looking forward to the next one!

  11. Congrats to the winner! Thanks to our Secret Agent and Authoress for putting this together. It's always good to get feedback and to take opportunities to present your work. I'm glad I worked up the nerve and challenged myself.
