Literary Contest Results

I finally got my results back regarding the PNWA literary contest.  I did not place in the top 8 so I was not picked as a finalist in the YA category.  However, the feedback I did receive from my two reviewers was not horrible.  In fact, it was encouraging in several aspects and it helped me think about what I need to work on.  I feel good still and know I can make this book even better during my editing.  As one friend quoted to me from Hemingway, "The first draft of anything is shit."  That's why it's a first draft.  Overall, a good score for a first draft, though.
