This is a pimping post! Yay! My first ever! And it might
be read by all of three people!
has been hosting a Last Fic Writer Standing contest for some time now. I've entered, and I think it's pretty much one of the coolest writing challenges I've ever seen. It's rather Survivor-esque, in that writers anonymously submit their stories each round (according to that round's specific prompt), and after the voting closes, there are first, second and third place winners - and the authors of the two stories with the lowest scores are out of the contest.
It's too late to enter, of course, but you can still vote. In fact, voting for Round #5
is open now (vote here)
. One of the reasons I like the contest so much is because the votes are anonymous, which means I'm actually getting honest, critical feedback on my work, for which I'm grateful (even if it's negative!).
The rules post is here
, and a guide to providing constructive criticism when voting is here
(though it is not mandatory).
So go check it out!
Oh, and here are links to my first four entries, which have gotten me this far: Lovesick (No, Really)
, Don't Tell Mama
, In A Minute
, and Holding On
. Let me know what you think, if you are so inclined . . . :-)
