Writers Behaving Badly

For the challenge, I decided to enter one of those competitive round-robin writing contests. A sidenote: there are some huge prizes, so the stakes are high. I've entered contests like this before. But I have never seen the kind of underhanded, nasty behavior anywhere else, at least not since Warner's iPublish program folded years ago.

Folks are attempting to raise their rankings by slapping horrifically low scores on other people's submissions, regardless of their quality. It's disheartening. Discouraging. I don't know why I'm bothering.

Is this really the way people want to gain their fifteen minutes of "fame"?

It's a shame, because this could have been a fun, valuable learning experience.

Karma is a bitch. A bitch with a long memory. All the things they think they're getting away with, they aren't. Hugs Tawny! I'm sorry sucky people are ruining a good thing for you.

That's just sickening. Are these actually pros your dealing with or a bunch of high schoolers? Because from what you've described, it definitely sounds like high school behavior.

I'm so sorry it had to be ruined for you.
