Today is the deadline for submitting your Snow White retelling to Rooglewood Press. If you need a link to the contest rules, here it is: Rooglewood Writing Contest. So, even if it is last minute, get that story to the judges!
It has been fun to see, through the blog world as well as Facebook, the rush of last-minute send-offs. It seems that many of us didn't get our stories finished until the last minute. Wow, what happened this year!
The judges are already reading through the stories that have been submitted so far. Rooglewood gives judges a checklist of things to help them gauge a story's potential to fit into this anthology. Somewhere out there, my story is moving through the Rooglewood process. Has it been read yet? Did they like it? Was it compatible with their criteria? Did it move on to the next round of judging or was it settled into a "not-this-year" file? I don't know!
During the last contest, we bloggers found a way to pass the time until the winners were announced. Last time it was March. This year, it will be April 2nd. So we have even longer to wait! So I've come up with some fun things to do together until then.
My mom has been encouraging me to post some of my previous (non-winning) stories on my blog. And I've decided to take the plunge and do it. The first one I'll share is An Arranged Marriage. It has 32 chapters, and I'll post one chapter a week on Tuesdays until it is done.
On Thursdays, I'll post something contest-related, and I want you guys to join in. If you have an idea for a post or a question you think I should ask, let me know!
On Saturdays, we'll do some type of writing-related post.
What do you think? Does this sound fun to you?
