I decided to enter Yorkshire Publishing Writing Contest. The main reason was they had all of the deadline dates that would encourage me to work.
So just before the deadline for Round One I submitted my proposal. From there they would pick out their top 15.
Today they posted their list and I'm into Round 2.The proposals were judged on creativity, marketability, writing style and concept. Makes all the time I spent writing over the last 2 days while the sun was shining for the first time in weeks worth it.
Can't stay here all day, I've got a book to finish.
