Nathan Bransford is a Brave Man

Look at Nathan Bransford's new contest. The Surprisingly Essential First Page Challenge. Deadline is Wednesday at 5:00pm Pacific Time. This Challenge has been up for only a few hours and there are already 52 comments...of which most are first page entries. At this rate, odds are there'll be over 600 entries by Wednesday. Maybe even close to 1,000. [Edited to add: It might not be so bad. As of 5:25pm Tuesday, January 29th, there are 346 comments. Although I'm sure there will be alot of entries coming in the last hour.] Good luck to Nathan, Holly (his co-judge) and all the contestants.

In any case, this will be an excellent study of what works and doesn't work for first pages. What say you?

OMG. There are 128 entries! How does Blogger handle the volume of all these page entries?

I am so glad I'm not doing the judging. There will be scads of entries. :)
