I feel very honored to have been given one of the "Player's Picks" by "EllaEnchanted" and an "Author's Pick." The well-known author Jodi Lynn Anderson endorsed my piece and I am so grateful, thank you!
Also, the wonderful author Rachel Vail gave my piece these comments:
"The dialogue is terrific -- it sounds real and moves the action along. I wanted more! How does she answer Max when he asks her out? What does Dave say to her after?"I start creating the round 3 entry later today. I'll cross my fingers and hope to do well again.
NaNo stats are coming later....and...here are some of my favorite comments on my round two entry from other teen participants:
Plot: Excellent - the last lines were really gripping, however, the rest of the story didn't really feel as tense or ominous as it should have been (3.5/5) Style: Awesome (4.5/5) Diction: Quite good (3.5/5) Characters: Definitely solid (4.5/5) Overall: (4/5)
How did THIS get into the Top 10???
I liked it. It was well written as far as I'm concerned and I really enjoyed reading it. You deserved the author pick that you got. Congrats!
It's ok... sort of makes Dave sound like a naive pervert though... I don't think he's supposed to be like that.
