As of 11:30 p.m. Monday night (5/1/06), I've posted comments on the first 20 entries. In each case, I've identified what I liked best. Some excelled in storytelling and overall reading enjoyment, while others excelled in pacing, technical use of language, and voice. The winners and other leading entries delivered on all points with skill.
Participants should feel free to email me if you would like any constructive comments I might have to offer.
I hope to finish the remainder of the comments tomorrow. Regular Clarity of Night content will continue soon, including my exploration of different fiction genres. Next week, look for a serial short story to begin in the horror/suspense genre called "Flashlight Tag"--a young man is stalked by a bent figure in the forest, but only when his flashlight is turned on.
UPDATE: Comments are now posted up to and including #30.
SECOND UPDATE: Comments are now posted for all entries! If I haven't responded to an email request for constructive comments, I will do so shortly.
