Best wishes to all in the final round!
Is there a beta reader's list this time? If so, then where do I find it?

The trouble is that in the final round we're all competing with each other so can't really beta for each other.
I reached out to a couple of people who had beta'd for me before who didn't make it through to the final.

Best of luck!

@kayelizarod - You’ll get there! I much prefer having the genre assigned as well! 

@FireHorse - Considering the sheer number of entrants, not to mention the quality of writing I’ve seen, I have zero expectations of placing. As a consequence, I’m much more relaxed than in previous rounds. 

@Katmiller - I keep hoping that some benevolent beta reader (not in the competition) will offer their services!

You guys work so quick!! I am just now pounding out a FIRST draft hahaha

These prompts are vague. They've got me stuck between two very different ideas!

And I'm wondering the same, @Katmiller. 

I need all the help I can get LOL

I've managed to get a few betas from wonderful people who have beta'd the novel that I'm soon going to submit to agents. Writer friends are the best! Especially as I hadn't prepped them in advance that I'd need them for today as wasn't expecting to make it through!

I'm actually pretty happy with how my story has turned out. I hated the open prompts and open genre but I do think I've crafted something good (not wanting to brag, but hey, we've got to have faith in ourselves!) Don't expect to place at all, but I hope it'll at least be a story you all enjoy reading in the forums afterwards. Got a couple more hours pre bed so now to try and avoid over-tinkering!

I love microfiction so much. It holds a very special place in my heart!

Don't feel bad. I just finished working on my first draft. Now I'm going to let it marinate for a few hours before I revise.

I’m working on a piece for fun but I’m not competing in the final round, anyone can PM me for a beta read. I’m a little busy in the next hour or two but will have the rest of the day free.

It'd be nice if there was a list of folks who didn't make it through to the final who would be willing to beta read!
