Try to win with writing?

I’ve never entered a writing contest. The whole “rules” and “guidelines” thing seems like a giant hassle to me. But 2010 being the year of All Things Possible (in my mind, anyway) I thought I’d give a few contests a try and see what it’s like. Kathy Temean posted yesterday about some writing contests this year and today some tips on how to win them.

Write on!

    It never hurts to enter a contest. Even if you don’t win, you get the experience of submitting your work. The more you get your name out there, the better chances you could get picked up later.

    Good luck.

    Not sure if you’re disqualified for Writers of the Future or not. Looks like you have a novel sale, which if it’s with a decent-sized publisher probably means you can’t enter Writers of the Future.

    But if you’re interested, you might e-mail Joni Labaqui and find out for sure.

    I am, of course, a fan of the Contest. At least for people who want to get into Science Fiction and Fantasy.

    I don’t qualify. My first publisher was Simon & Schuster, not small by any standards, but thanks for dropping by. I will try some other competitions though, and congratulations on your win!
