Congratulations, writers! If your name is on this list, your entry has been sent on to our second round judges, Laura Anderson Kurk and Shannon Dittemore.
If your name isn't on the list, I'll be sending your feedback to the email address you provided when you entered the contest. You can expect your feedback by the end of the week.
In other exciting news, this weekend Go Teen Writers is hosting a word war!
What is a word war?
A word war is a competition to see who can write the most words in a set period of time. Sometimes people word war for hours. Sometimes for fifteen minutes. This time we're doing it for a long weekend.
When is it?
Thursday, April 3rd through Monday, April 7th. You can join us for any of the days and times you're available.
Where will it be?
Right here on the blog. There'll be a post each day, and you can leave comments as you make progress throughout the day or just post your word total when you're done writing. You can also leave comments of encouragement for the other writers.
Why do a word war?
Not only do word wars help you focus on your story for a period of time, but you can get a break from the isolation of writing. You get to encourage writers and be encouraged as well.
Are there prizes?
Other than the joy of boosting your word count and enjoying a fun community of writers for a weekend? No, no prizes.
Hope to see you here on Thursday!
