Madeline Hunter on contest judging

October 2, 2010

Great post on the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood blog by the amazing historical author Madeline Hunter.

Check it out.


Madeline Hunter shares What Judging Contests has Taught Me (about writing, about contests, and about judging itself)

—-Is there enough conflict in the story?

—-Is the hero believable?

—-Is the unfolding of the story fresh?

—-Is the development of the physical relationship realistic?

—-Does the synopsis trace the romance’s development, focusing on the turning points in both the emotional and physical relationship?

—-Is this your story, the way you want to tell it, or have you “written to the contest”?
