I can’t think of a better opportunity for reading than enjoying the submissions to the 2018 Summer Writing Challenge. Of course, there are still three days left, so there are MORE entries coming. But what I’ve learned, it’s good to avoid falling too far behind. If that happens, it’s hard to find the time to read ALL the submissions.
So consider today a “catch up” day in which you can jump in and read those entries that have already been submitted. Then you can stop in tomorrow and Sunday to finish out the submissions.
That’s just one plan, though. All next week, you can read and give your response to the challenge entries. Because, clearly, ones that come in first would have the advantage of being up longer and therefore could garner more plus votes just because of longevity. With the extra week, those submissions that come in later will have a good amount of exposure. In the past, we’ve had a number of winners come from those later entries.
But for today, why not take advantage of the opportunity to see what writers have already submitted. Then on Monday, I’ll tell you what fascinates me so with this challenge.
You’ll find the submissions in the comments of this post: “2018 Spec Faith Summer Writing Challenge.”
And don’t forget: it’s not to late to enter. You have until Sunday at midnight (Pacific time).
One more “don’t forget.” One of the “prizes” of this challenge is for the writers to receive feedback, so please add your opinion. Tell those who have entered what you like about their submission and how they could strengthen it.
