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.
