The 3 Day Novel winner list came out today, and I didn’t even make the shortlist. Damn, this is frustrating. I had such a great concept, too. It must be the execution of that concept that is coming up short.
I guess the most frustrating thing about this whole process is the lack of feedback. You either make the shortlist, or you don’t. No other info is given. I realize that this is a standard procedure, but I wish I could at least get the internal score my work got. Yes, getting 400 scores out to 400 entrants might be a chore, but I did fork over some bux to enter. Or do this: charge an extra three bux to get your score. I’ll pay, I have an intense interest in it.
Argh! I’ll get over this, but it still bugs me a little. And I’ll still enter for next year.
