Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I got a form rejection. It's kind of a relief as I didn't think this story was a good fit (or very good, period), so if it had done well it would have just skewed my idea of what the contest wants wotf007. I have more faith in my Q2 entry.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I got that e-mail too, but since it was from a generic 'mailer' address and not Joni or some other Writers of the Future e-mail I didn't freak out too much. I'd be curious to actually watch the ceremony this year. The time capsule sounds really interesting. I'm personally interested because it was s...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I subbed on the very last day of the quarter, so my wait time at Duotrope is sitting at 76 days. Since all the rejections so far have been for people waiting 87+ days, I figure KD just hasn't gotten to my story yet. In my mind it's already rejected, not that I'm a usually pessimistic person but it j...

Re: The Hunger Games Series Paperback/Publishers Are Lame

I wrote the publisher. Asking to speak to a manger with a two-year old in tow when you're literally going to every store that sells novels in town is an excellent way to get Gatorade in your hair and tiny Batmobile tracks on your face. wotf017 Geez, the book store managers in your town sound crazy ...

Re: The Hunger Games Series Paperback/Publishers Are Lame

This seems like the definition of a 'first world problem.' I was mostly just irritated that although paperback copies are available the publisher has pulled the copies from retailer shelves in an effort to force people to buy the hard cover because they know with a movie coming out the demand will ...

If I want to read the HUNGER GAMES trilogy, I will have to order it from the UK, or pay a lot of extra cash here for the hardcovers.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello, long time lurker, first time poster here. I just submitted my first entry to the WotF contest yesterday. One of my New Year's goals is to enter a story every quarter until I place or pro-out, so I figured I better get started. I'm glad I found a whole community of people with like-minded goal...
