Yup! We get back our contest entries.
Wah. A sixty?
Boohoo! A 50!
And all from the same story . . .
Feels like we posted pix of our kids on our blogs,
and someone said, "What an ugly kid!"
We take it all personal and have our feelings hurt.
Pretty normal response, but now that the initial boohoo
is over, remember to thank those people who helped
make the contest a true success.
Helping writers get better.
Please take the time (even if you grit your teeth doing it sometimes)
to thank the judges and the coordinators of the contest.
Whether it's all warm fuzzies or not, judges spend a lot
of their own spare time critting the work.
THEY DON'T REALLY THINK YOUR BABY'S UGLY!
They just want to help you succeed.
