Re(7): Competition clues

My first Azed competition entry was for Number One and my last is many years away, I hope. I quite often used to think that my unsuccessfully submitted clues were better than some I read in the slip. Now I rarely do. I’m beginning to understand what “good” means in the context of the Azed competition. And lately, my name’s been getting into the slip somewhere round ten times a year, mostly in the HCs unfortunately.

If 13 clues a year can get me up to that level, think about the professional setters who produce up to 1,000 every year but still enjoy clue-writing enough to enter competitions. In their entries they won’t be settling for “good enough”. No surprise then that their names are up there every month.
