Well, I didn't place or get an HM. Not gonna lie, bit gutted as really rated my story.

Congrats to those who did do well. 

I'm feeling a bit of the same here, so you're not alone! I hope the feedback was helpful--mine showed me exactly where I went wrong, but it's still tough to swallow when you come to the table with your best, but it ends up missing the mark. 

Regardless, your story is fantastic! Sometimes I have to remind myself that the judges are just 5 people out of a pool of many, and 5 different judges may have chosen different stories in the top 10/20. Far easier said than done to think about that when the disappointment hits, though Heart

Thank you! Yours was great too, was very surprised to see you not placing.

Yes, remembering that they are just 5 people is helpful. I got decent feedback from 3 judges, and pretty useless from 2 but that's the nature of these competitions!

I needed that reminder too.. its only 5 peoples opinions.  One of my judges clearly is not a dog lover (therefore a terrible person in my mind) and thought my story would be better if the MC was human???? The other judges gave very valuable feedback though.
