Writing Contests

Fellow writers, I'm wondering if you may have any thoughts on short story submissions. I'm interested in submitting a few pieces I've written but am curious to your thoughts on a couple things:

1) What are your thoughts on submitting a short that is a premise and first chapter of a novel you're working on (provided that it also meets the other submission guidelines)?
2) Related to the above question, do all shorts need to have a solid conclusion?
3) Do you have any tips to share?

Thank you in advance!

Apologies to my "regular" blog followers/readers. My muse has been giving me the slip these past few weeks. Writing is so much a part of who I am that when I go through these phases it worries me that I'm becoming someone else...and what a scary thought that is.
