How Do You Know If I Read Your Story For The Writing Contest Yet? And Did I like it???

your humble host

Did I read your story yet?


To be fair to all the contest entries, I wait until they are all submitted and start then. That way nobody I read late has an advantage over something I read a month ago.


Seems the best way, but it does create a bit of work in about two days.

But rest assured, I haven’t read it yet! You’re all starting at the same place, toes still on the starting line.


Good luck!

  1. I was interested to read that you also read all the entries in one go, Dan. I also did that when I was a judge for one of the Carrot Ranch Rodeo challenges. It does seem more fair to read them all together so that you can rate them all effectively.

    1. It would be so easy to read one story and then two weeks later read another one, but you might forget some good details from that first one in that amount of time. I just have too much experience doing interviews and other things with job applicants, and I like to take a lot of notes in certain stories are going to stick out in my head, but I just feel if I spread them out over six weeks I would miss stuff or forget things.
