Re: What do you think of my story so far?

michaelfehr95,

I applaud your enthusiasm, but there are some insurmountable problems here:

1. The Contests are supposed to be anonymous, and judges sometimes come around here. Assuming Michael Fehr is your real name, you've just broken anonymity. I recommend you remove the images and links ASAP.

2. The two Contests are separate, with separate judges and results. While you and a writer might conceive of a "joint project", the judges would see it as two separate entries to the two Contests.

3. IotF has specific guidelines of what they're looking for: three different works in three different styles (thus showing your versatility and ability to work with varying editor demands). One long comic strip in one style will not meet the requirements.

That being said: keep at it! You have energy and excitement, and those will help you to persevere. That's important for the Contest and for your career in general.

hmnn...good point. I'll probably remove these and resubmit under an anonymous name
