I'm currently writing for the Writers of the Future contest, mainly because I need experience sending in stuff for review by either an editor, a publisher, or whoever. It helps that the contest is free to enter, and has the prestige it does. In fact, it also helps that winning first through third places will net the winners $500-$1,000 at most each quarter, with first place winners getting a shot at $5,000 extra at the end of the calendar year. Now, I don't want to break the rules and post a snippet here, just to be on the safe side... I read the rules before signing up, though I've yet to actually submit the entry just yet, due to it being incomplete. However, if the entry wins anything, I plan to actually publish this somewhere... preferably after extending it a fair bit. So... comments?
