    Because of the holiday, we're announcing the Chapter Four winner a little bit early. CONGRATULATIONS SUSANNAH MARIE ERWIN! Susannah's story was incredibly well-written, ... Show More

    To epilogue or not to epilogue? Editors: Is that something that we can consider? Or is that overstepping the "Chapter 5" bounds? Thank you!!

    Inquiring minds would like to know... where did the corgi references come from? :)

    • Cheryl Tapper Anne-Marie, I think the flower thing for Chapter 3 was a lil too subtle. Kevin's corgi suggestion was perfect! :)

    • Jennifer Avalon Haha! Throwing Kevin under the bus in the best way possible! We've all gone a little corgi obsessed since

    • Cassie Leigh We were excited to see how long it would take the editors to ask about our secret prompt. 😊

    • Jennifer Avalon The corgis are way too hard to deny lol corgi power!

    • Roxanne Soule Careful readers, you Avon editors! (We had a non-specific flower in the last chapter, but as Cheryl said, our generic flowers were too subtle.)

    I've been reading and commenting on submissions for Chapter 3, but I don't think I'm going to be able to get to them all. I'm picking submissions at random, so please ... Show More

    • Jennifer Avalon I just saw this! I know you must be extremely busy but I'd love to have some feedback from someone who's been there, done that in the industry. I love the growing process that comes with the feedback!

    • Cassie Leigh Beverly Jenkins we've all learned from your sage advice this round. Thank you. All the mentors each round have been so generous with their time.

    • Beverly Jenkins You're welcome.

    • Candy Granda I just want to echo everyone else's thanksgiving! All of your advice has been very helpful. As someone else suggested earlier I am copying all of the Q&A stuff and saving it to refer to often. Thanks again!

    • Jennifer Avalon Wow I can't believe it took me this long to find out there was a q&a! Joining late but better than never! With this challenge I find myself conducting a lot of research. In fact the researching for anything I write tends to take up a lot of time but provide a lot of inspiration. I also tend to get so wrapped up in voice and structure that I tend to lose focus. I write best when I'm not overthinking but that's especially hard in the editing process. And i just have to mention, I will be reading each and every post in this q&a as soon as i get out of work! Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback and your thoughts! It's amazing!
