Just had the sad duty of communicating with Final Draft about the competition.
Talking to them was not the sad part. Mailing back the 2 certificates for their program was.
One of the main reasons we continued the short story category this year was all the positive feedback I had received from potential entrants both on Facebook (in 5 different writing groups) and on Twitter. At least 10 people gave the impression they would be entering this year. We only received 1 story before the deadline (had an email late last night apologizing for not meeting the deadline from another). That means only 2 people decided it was worth their time.
If that is the case, there will not be a short story contest in the future. I will have to think long and hard on this. Even the 4 people who contacted me asking to start the category have never entered over the 3 years we have done it. Very disappointing.
