Third Submission time added for The Writer’s Voice
Due to an issue while setting up the widget for the evening submission time, we’ve decided to open the widget up to accept 25 more entries into the contest. When running such a large scale contest, something can go wrong. And it did.
We apologize for the roller coaster of emotions this type of an event can cause, but happy that we can try and make it up to you.
A thing about contests, they’re a great way to get to know your fellow writers, get critiques, break out of an agent’s slush pile, and develop a tough skin for the rocky road of publishing ahead of you. It’s how many of the coaches for The Writer’s Voice developed their skills. And all of us are now agented. We do this, because we love this community, and we want all of you to succeed at your writing goals.
With that said, at 12PM EDT on May 4, 2012 we will reopen the widget and accept 25 more entries into the contest. Please come back tomorrow and sign up on the widget in the submission post.
Good luck everyone!
So cool of you guys to do this. You’ve all done a great job! This couldn’t have been easy. <3<3
Ditto what Erica said. I’m amazed at all your widgeting technology. 🙂
I think that’s about 9a California time; and I’ll be at work. I’m bummed.
Squee to the ninth power squared!
You guys are awesome! We all really appreciate all the work you guys do to help us out, even when things go a bit wrong. 🙂 Thanks!
Thank you so much for all this headache and effort. I am still a little shaky from last night but made it in at #147 after many prayers and whining and shaky hands.
And my name is a little odd on the list but I’m sure everyone knows exactly how I managed the mistake! 😉
I sincerely hope that everyone knows what you all are doing is out of the kindness of your hearts, because you care about good writing and great books. Having been a co-host of the A to Z blogfest (a linky list with 2000 entrants, before we removed spam) I know how difficult this can be. So I just wanted to say: THANK YOU!
You guys are so nice to give your time like this… I wish I could read all the entries, but I will at least be checking back to see the teams and how it goes from there. Good luck everyone!
I agree with everyone. You all totally R-O-C-K!!!
Whew. I finally visited all 200 blogs. Congrats to everyone who made it!
