Apologies for not getting the entries posted until this morning, folks. But they are now available for critiquing and voting! Please proceed to the 200 Words forum, where there are virtual desserts, drinks, and lounging chairs for your enjoyment while you critique the 10 entries. (And do watch out for the rampaging centaurs. They got loose from somebody's imagination last week.)
Here are the Voting Rules to keep in mind:
Voting is open to all Legendfirians! Every contestant is REQUIRED to vote.
Unless excused for serious reasons, you must vote on all entries. You will receive reminders of this requirement 1 week, 3 days, and 1 day prior to the end of the voting period. If you do not vote on ALL entries, your entry will be disqualified.
Schedule: Voting closes, winners announced: Monday, June 28, 11:59 pm
Please follow these steps:
1. Critique each entry according to the following questions. Answer them as thoroughly as possible. Two sentences minimum per question. The goal is to help the author improve their craft. NOTE: voters who leave one-liner critiques to justify their vote will receive warnings according to our warning system.
Technical writing elements: Which elements were technically sound in this entry? What still needs work? (Particularly surrounding the narrative hook.)
Artistic writing elements: What appealed to me in this entry? What might benefit from revision? (Consider things like how engaging the hook is, appropriate word choice, metaphor, imagery, uniqueness, etc.)
Prompt: How well does this entry relate to the prompt?
2. Assign each area a numerical value: Rate each entry from 1 to 5, with five being the most favorable.
3. Add your scores and divide by 3 to get an average score. For example: 3.5 + 3 + 4 = 3.5 (The contest host will collect all the averaged scores for each entry and tally the overall average to determine the winners.)
You may vote for yourself to maintain your anonymity. This vote will not count toward the final score.
All entries must have the same number of votes for each vote to count. For example, if over half the entries receive 7 votes, we will set the final vote requirement to 7 votes per entry.
