Final words to the contest
This contest has been our team's first big event and it was amazing to see everyone taking part. We are very happy to end it on a high note.
At this moment I would like to share a few cool feedback shared by our judges for the benefit of our writers:
- Spelling ,grammatical mistakes make a bad impression.
- Some novels had great story lines but lost it out in the writing style.
- Gripping story flow is essential.
- Some novels had an interesting start but were let down by a mediocre middle section.
- When we have a novel that has >30,000 words, it is important that the novel holds the interest of the reader till the last page.
- Different idea or a regular story line, a reader's perspective is important.
