Also, am I allowed to submit the story to the contest and then send it to an agent before waiting for the results of the contest?
Yes to both questions, Amy. I think we say in the Terms and Conditions that if you have a prologue or introduction, that can be included as well as the first chapter.
And absolutely to the second question. Don't hang around for a year waiting for the results to come in. If your manuscript is ready to be submitted to an agent, go for it. It won't make a difference if your book is picked up after you've entered it. It just can't be in print before you enter.
After all the hard work of NaNo, this is really a great way to take it one more step.
