I’m not sure whether I’m entering the contest yet, but if I do, I know I’ll likely have to start a new project from scratch and I figure that others are in the same boat . . . wanting to enter it, but without a project started or nearly finished. So, I thought it might be ideal if people record their progress in a thread with word counts or something.
It has the benefit of not ‘showing our cards to the competition’ as well, though I guess if someone says they’ve got a 500,000 word project to submit, it might give us something to consider in comparison to our own word count. (Though length is hardly the sole determining factor when it comes to quality.)
PS: I wasn’t sure whether to post this in the General category or the Works in Progress category.
