Even if you don't submit an opening remember to check in and please comment on those openings. Writers need all the reader feedback they can get. Besides, as always, by dissecting and commenting on someone else's opening, the flaws in your own become more clear. Yay learning, yay comments, yay to everyone growing and improving!

When Opportunity Knocks, Answer the Door
For those of you with novel or short story openings that you're pretty settled on, there's a fine opportunity on Flogging the Quill right now. He's whittled his openings down to a spare few and is requesting more submissions. In a writing world where there are long queues and daunting slush piles, this is a great time to hop in before everyone else notices there's a call.
