I haven't heard from Grace yet, so may have to send her another message to see if she wants this feedback report.

Stay tuned for our next bonus prize winner announcement in the next day or so.

Love, Deb

Funny that you say 'want' it, Deb.
My original post on this thread was not simply 'Congratulations, Grace'. I had something written out...and deleted it.

I thought about if I won it, how would I react.

There's something about putting your work out there for evaluation that scares the daylights out of me.
It's different than entering the challenge. That is like being in a crowd.
Winning the evaluation, is like being on stage in a spotlight.

I think for me it means fearing the input?

Fact vs. Facade :D

For those who take the opportunity, I commend their strength!

Congratulations on your opportunity, Grace!

Rikki, you nailed it. That's exactly why we don't just hit them with it. A person has to be ready for this type of critique. If they aren't, then it could be quite discouraging (which is the opposite of what we want).

It's vital that a writer eventually does seek this sort of input, though, particularly if they are looking for publication. But it has to be in their own timing.

Love, Deb
