A combination of both. They seem to go by reader retention first, to determine which entries the judges even consider. (This means entries with the highest percentage of readers to complete all three chapters.)

Then they use a judging rubric to make decisions from among those with the highest retention.

Private messaging you. <3

Thanks!

No problem! It’s definitely harder for new writers, but not as hard as it would be if they only counted raw numbers. A story that had 1,000 people read the first chapter and only 10 continue on to chapter 2 would actually be in a worse spot than a story that had 50 readers altogether, but 49 of them continued on.

I imagine most stories from authors with a loyal fanbase do have good retention. BUT there have been some instances of newbies winning in the past! Good luck. :slight_smile:

Can I remove a line from my story? I left a change of hairdo in there but decided to abandon that idea when I included the CC. But now the hair changes back after the shower because I left that line in. Can I take it out or is this considered a big change?

This sounds like an error to me since it creates an inconsistency, so I would think it would be OK. You aren’t changing the CC itself.


#1121

I am so confused, I know people are still writing new chapters to their story… is this allowed, I was under the impression you couldn’t do anything to your story once it was published until the shelf has been created…?
