I recently judged for several contests and one of them returned a judge’s grid so you could compare how you scored against other judges. Either it was the luck of the draw or I’m the hanging judge, the grim reaper, the infamous EAST GERMAN JUDGE as we were discussing on the Ruby Slipper Blog.
Well, I didn’t have a bad hair day and I genuinely sit down ready to love each entry. I always give constructive comments and I try to stick to the major issues rather than flood the entry with a bunch of nitpicks, yet I was a little surprised how my scores compared to the other judges.
Watch out! Apparently Judge Jeannie’s got a mean streak.

I’ll remember that for future reference! 🙂 Actually, I found your comments on Flogging the Quill to be the most constructive and least painful of the lot.

are you serious? You were kind enough to critique my work, and you were totally, 100% fair and spot on. Not anything east german-ish about it!

You would make a great TV show.

Maybe a reality show. I’ve always felt like more of a Simon Cowell than a Paula. 🙂
