What did I enter? Because none of my short stories are anywhere near any kind of publishable quality, I decided to send 10,000 words of my novel. I did a bit of “house cleaning” on it before sending it (I noticed a few blips while reading through some chapters a few days ago). I’m not holding my breath for anything here, but one never knows. We’ll see how things go!
