Contest Entry Returned

I received my contest entry back this morning times three--I had three judges, so three copies with comments. One judge was a published author.

Two of them agreed my main plot point was rather weak. Okay, good to know. I didn't think so, but I'm not that objective. The published author liked my writing style and voice. The third judge on the other hand, apparently didn't quite get my style as she marked me way down on the grammar section because of my use of incomplete sentences. Has she read a novel lately? Or listened to people talk or herself think? People use a lot of fragments in their speech and thoughts. Oh, well. That's fine.

So now I have some more work to do on this dratted WIP. Though I am going to wait until I have finished it completely. My goal is to have it complete, no matter how rough, by the 15th. Of course, now that I think about it, at the rate I'm going, that may not happen. But I have the weekend. I'll see how it plays out.

Fingers crossed!
