Title: Entry Plus
Post by: MattAB17 on March 05, 2013, 09:20:21 PM
Hi,

I was just wondering how long the entryplus critiques will be. I know they will take a while to do them well, but it has been a while since the winners were announced.

Thanks
Matt

Is there an update on how this is going, the state of play of EntryPlus submissions etc?

I'm also looking for an update on this. I had very little expectation of placing in this competition, but I was seriously interested in getting some good feedback.

I'm less concerned with actually having the feedback in my hand, and more with just being aware of how the process is going.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing. Can we have an update, please?

So sorry for the delay. I was out for surgery for 3 weeks and am finally back! I'll have Marc post with an exact number for you as soon as he can. I know we are getting close, but I'm not sure how close. Thanks for your patience and I promise we are working as fast as we can. :)

Getting there, guys and girls. Sorry it's taking so long, the three of us have had a pretty manic time of late :(

Hoping to have Entry Plus done by end of April, Anthology is pretty much edited, ready to send the edits out over the next couple weeks.

For reference - anthology projects are harder than you think!!!! :O

Everyone who has posted here - can you PM me your names (as you submitted them) so that I can make sure you're on the list :)

Not too far off done now, it seems a few that we're sent haven't been received - had 2 today, so expecting there to be more :(

Got it! :) Me, Paul and Jennie LOVED your story. Jennie was the one who found it and long-listed it, so I've placed it on to her 'to do ASAP' pile :)

Really sorry to hear that, Autumn, hope there were no complications and that you're feeling better! Seriously, no rush. As I said in my post, patience isn't much of a problem.... it's just a lot harder with no information!  ;)

I've PM'd you my details.

I shall now submerge, resume lurking, and cease badgering you lot. I can only imagine how much work is involved in a project of this magnitude!

Thanks very much for the reply. Have just sent you a message with my details.

Hope your lives are beginning to calm down now!

Got my EntryPlus last week, some great feedback from Autumn2May highlighting  one of the things I was most concerned about (a large cast for a short story). I know where I went wrong (too much time setting up too big a cast, not enough forward movement) and have ideas where I need to go.

First thing on the list is a re-read of The Fool Jobs by Joe Abercrombie - which in part was the reason I had a large cast - and see how he managed them and made a short story work.

Thanks to everyone involved with the EntryPlus, unpaid and in your own time shows a great level of dedication to the project.

Really getting through them now. Over 3/4 of the way, me and Jennie REALLY want them done for April so that we can get on with editing the rest of the anthology (we've done a fair amount - but put it on hold once Entry Plus closed). Once again: so, so appreciative of the patience people have shown :)

Only about 60 - should be done within next 30 days, guys and girls.

Anthology isn't too far off either :D

Good to hear! My fiancé pre-ordered it for me back in January and he seems to think it's not arriving. I have to keep giving him updates. Haha.
