So Round 2 is coming up quickly. Will we have feedback from round 1 before we write the second?

Yes! Usually we get results/feedback 2 or 3 days before the next challenge.

Couple comments:

"Round 2 is coming up ..." 
Remember that challenges 1 and 2 are combined into round 1. Not a big deal at all, just keep in mind round 2 means something different, for NYCMFF.

Results are scheduled to come out 11:59p ET on 11 Sept (Wed night). 
1/4 of the time it's delayed by a few hours, so as the Hitchhiker's button says, Don't Panic. They will email everyone if it s delayed.

Judges' feedback usually comes within a day or so of results. 
They REALLY try to get it out prior to the next prompt drop (11:59p ET on 13 Sept), but it usually works out that it might be anywhere from 12-36 hours prior to the next challenge.

Feedback doesn't always help within the contest, because unless you get the same (or close) genre, you probably won't get the same judges. And often the judges give conflicting feedback. :-P

Good luck!

The best quality feedback is on here because we tend to have more time to read and consider each other's work :-)

But it's a competition, so I suppose we shouldn't entirely ignore the judges... LOL

It looks like they actually changed it so that it's Challenge 1, Challenge 2, Challenge 3, and Challenge 4. Which is way less confusing than all that "round" nonsense!! :)

Yeah, so I was talking to my dad earlier today, and I told him we get results midweek and then I'll be writing a story that weekend. He said, "Well, yeah, if you assume you'll make it to the next round, Miss High and Mighty," and I was like, "Um. It's a non-elimination round, Mr. Brains." Big smile
