Happy Birthday (and an update)
Happy Birthday, Some Lost Melody!!! May you always STAY DANGEROUS!!!
Contest update. Okay, no entries will be accepted after 9am NY time. Boy do I have a lot of reading to do!!! As I said earlier, I'm very impressed with the submissions. Here are some of the guidelines my fellow judge and I will follow when picking the winners.
1. We will look for a mix of genres. There were A LOT of space/sci-fi entries! Which is awesome (Beth Revis would be so proud), but we'll want representatives from the other genres, too.
2. We will look for stories that feel "complete." In other words, we want entries that aren't just the beginning of a story or a passage from the middle. The 250 words should work on their own.
3. The contest called for stories written in English, which isn't totally fair, since many of this blog's visitors come from other lands. So we will overlook minor grammatical errors when reading entries from overseas.
