I made my personal goal of submitting all five chapters to the contest! The experience was great overall -- great practice writing quickly, dealing with prompts, and managing feedback. I read a lot of great entries and learned from them. And I found a great community of readers in the other writers. It was a small group (only about 30 who stuck with it) and everyone was amazingly supportive and generous. That said, I was disappointed in the lack of feedback from Avon editors.
