Noodler Critique Giveaways for Golden Heart MonthEach week, three winners will be selected at random from the people who comment on that week’s blogs postings, starting midnight Sunday and ending midnight the following Sunday. Winners will be announced on Sundays.
There is a bonus, as well. If the commenting winner mentions being referred to the blog by somebody else, that person also wins. We could have as many as six winners each week!
Each winner will receive a critique of the first 5 pages of their Golden Heart entry from a member of the Wet Noodle Posse (aka a “Noodler”). Critiques will focus on how to make this particular entry the best it can be for the Golden Heart.
Comment once and you are entered that week, but you have to really say something, not just "nice blog" or "this is interesting," and you can comment as often as you like. Winners will be randomly selected. A winner may not win more than one critique per week, but a winner will be eligible to win again subsequent weeks. Each week brings a new chance to win.
All entries and critiques will be by email.
Winners must submit their entry by Nov 1 at the latest, but are encouraged to submit as soon as possible. Critiquers will return the entry within 7 days.
One Grand Prize winner will be selected on Nov 1 from all the people who comment on all the blogs for the entire month of October (ending 12:00 am Oct 31). The Grand Prize winner will receive a critique of the partial and synopsis to be entered in the Golden Heart (the 55 pages the GH allows). The entry must be sent by Nov 7 and the critique will be returned by Dec 1. Winner may select their critiquer from a list of Wet Noodle Posse volunteers to be posted.
The content of entries will be held in the strictest confidence and will be seen only by the contest coordinators and the critiquer. All entries will be deleted when the contest is done.
No one can guarantee success in the Golden Heart, because judging is so subjective, but by offering critiques, we are hoping our expertise will help. Becoming a Golden Heart finalist is a thrill, one we wish everyone could experience. That is why we are offering our month of Golden Heart tips and our critiques.--The Wet Noodle Posse
