Contest for first chapters from NaNoWriMo 2013 novels. Contest is CLOSED and being judged.
First Chapter Contest
Welcome to the most relevant contest for all those that took part in NaNoWriMo during 2013, whether you were successful or not. If you have a novel that you started during November 2013 and have a few chapters completed, you can also enter.
In association with the "Kiwis on WDC!" group, we thought it may be nice to run this in honor of the 2013 winner of the Man Booker Prize, Eleanor Catton (http://www.themanbookerprize.com/man-booker-prize-2013).
The main purpose here is to send us your first chapter for a chance to win a full novel review by "P.E.N.C.I.L." .
You have already done all the work, so reap the benefits.
The contest will run from now till 11:59 PM WDC time on December 31st 2013.
Your entry must only be the first chapter of your novel.
Your entry needs to be rated no higher than 18+
Only 1 entry per contestant.
