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!

    Ooh, thanks for sharing! I've been meaning to submit some stories to contests and really needed this reminder! Good luck!

      You're welcome! I've been trying to get in the habit of posting contests and things, but I keep forgetting. Hopefully, this will change now :)
