In this competition, is it a good idea to have a nice front cover?
An appealing cover can make a big different on first impressions for readers so yes
Than I have to hunt for someone who can draw manga? some who know some?
You don't necessarily have to have someone draw something. You can create a thread in the forums if you would like. Some people use Canva and Unsplash to create their covers.
That's half this place man! Hahahaha But you'll be luckiest finding someone to help if you commission them.
You could try in the forums to ask for an artist who draws manga but generally doesn't have to be manga! you could Photographs too! or graphics!
I remember the past camp one writer used like beach graphics and it was so beautiful!
Anyway! you could check the previous entries here: https://tapas.io/collection/FirstWritersCamp to get a better idea!
Overall I would say not to worry too much though
Welcome! and looking forward to your entry
Well, I have my research materials together, and I have started combing through it. I've got no outline and no title yet. That's okay for this stage.
Slow but steady wins the race!
The contest is in 8 days people! Get ready! For we are about to enter the battlefield, a place of no return...dun dun dunnnnn
She's not wrong..Remember the Tortoise and the Hare................. @Peni is so wise
Okay, I have half a page more than I did last time, and a cover art, and a proofreader... Come at me y'all, I IS PREPAAARED \o/
I have changed my title, keep an eye on it."The sorceress of the wood"
Good luck everyone!!!
You too! It's going to be fun!
I've only just finished writing chapter three! I feel very behind, ha ha!
I'm really hoping to have at least five done by the 9th. Good luck, everyone! Final push for prep, let's go!
You got this!
I've got the required chapters done but I'm trying to get as much as I can done so I don't have to balance writing my main series and finishing the Camp project.
Great to read about all the preparation this time round.
My tip would be to schedule you story to be published as early as possible on the day the camp starts. It will put your story at the top of the list readers will click on to view stories (this is what happened during the previous camp).
Oh dear! I better hurry with writing it down already!!!
I am pumped! -Game face-
