Green Room - Part 3 Week 0 The Halloween Edition

Another day and we've hit *130 contestants*??? I wasn't sure that we were going to have as many as Season 3, and here we are, VERY close to doubling it!!

One of the things that makes me really happy is the diversity out there. Lots of new people with new experiences to meet and learn from.

I'm also quite pleased with the people who have experience in the publishing industry who have entered. It always makes me chuckle (well ok, not "chuckle") when I see people talking about "the popularity contest" aspects as if the key to getting published is just writing a really really good, putting it on a shelf and watching the money roll in. As if there wasn't a LOT of networking and self promotion involved.

So how are you this morning? Who have you been enjoying reading/interacting with so far?
