Do scene divisons hurt your chances in the contest?

Postby LambentTyto » Tue Jul 10, 2018 5:15 pm

I basically divided up my story into five parts with bold headings 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Does that hurt your chanced in the competition? Probably a stupid question.

If it's what works for the story, it's what works. Majority of stories in the anthologies are told in multiple scenes, numbering the scenes shouldn't be any different.
