Agree on the judges/contestant loops. I don’t know of any other contest that does this and I have entered quite a few. We have a good reason for taking the loops away, so let’s go with it.
What do you all think about changing it to the first chapter/scene/5 pages/etc? Top 5 winners of any category?
Also, I’m going to ask the membership for a few volunteers to join this board and mention a little of what we’ve discussed here, though in general terms. Get a little feedback…
Lastly, we need someone to run the contest. I’m willing to help, but I’m stretched thin right now and I don’t feel I’m in a good position to run the whole thing–and probably shouldn’t, being the President of FTH and all (unless I’m voted out next month). Also, I’m better at taking orders from more organized people. 😉
