Last time they used a point system, but this one is more arcane. 

I think it's the top 3 of each heat that goes through,

So, still harder, and the competition of arguably better quality than in the first round, but still.

The first time I posted something I wrote here, I wrote something like "new writer - please be gentle with feedback." So you can always do something like that if you want. I've gotten better about accepting constructive criticism as well, so now I don't post a caveat like this anymore, but it was helpful when I started. 

Good luck!

Go for it Crez! I was apprehensive about the forum and sharing etc too but actually it's such an amazing part of the whole competition! It's so lovely when someone tells you something they liked about your story. And the constructive criticism is great too. Don't worry, it's a very positive experience! :-)

KNEW YOU COULD DO IT!

Bravo that man.


Sigh. We'll see. There's a much better story in it, but it was a grind to get it out. I did everything *but* this story.

And thanks.


Can't wait to read your story! I'm sure it will be great

Crez - check out this link. It should get you where you need to be. :)


Thank you! How do we give each other feedback? 

Every story will have it's own thread - you can leave your comments on the author's story thread. Most folks will happily do a return review for you!

Thanks again!!!
