A big congratulations to everyone who has started their Open Novella! We had a lot of fun combing through all the submissions and seeing what you were all writing about. From epic battles raging in distant futures, to pineapples hitting the big city -- and we thought we'd seen it all...
If you hit the 2k milestone using one of our prompts, consider yourself a winner. That said, we still had some judging to do to whittle down our chosen favourites, so below is a long list of writers who have progressed the first round and are in for a shot at the grand prize in January!
If you don't see your name below, don't despair -- you're still entitled to a sticker once you've hit 2k using one of our 24 prompts. (More on sticker rules later.)
So read on and give a hearty congratulations to any friends or notable names on the list. If you're included, don't forget to sing it from the rooftops! Grand winners of this round will be notified by a member of the contest in the coming days about their prize.
