I’ve entered a number of US contests this year – it’s addictive – but so far I’m yet to final in any!
The interesting thing is that almost always my scores/comments are VERY diverse. This has happened in most of the RWA Oz contests I’ve entered too but until recently they had three or four judges per entry and always dropped the lowest, so I was lucky.
Anyway today I got feedback on my ‘OHHN’ mss – you know the one with the ghosts?! Funny that one judge absolutely loved it – she said fabulous things and comments on certain lines she just adored.
One line she liked was ‘If lattes spoke, this was how they’d sound.’
Well… the other judge hated this line. Said it was way OTT! It was like this with many other lines/ paras – one judge loved it, one thought it was TOO MUCH!!
So, who do I listen to? LOL. In the end, I’m just gonna go with my gut!
Anyone out there entered any contests lately? Aside from the MAJOR one 🙂
