Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

Poor neglected thread, waiting for the fabled Thursday to come so your first sibling will stop snapping up all the comments. Here's a tidbit: while the current status of Q1 subs remains unknown, Dave has said he plans to dive into Q2 after Q1 without taking a break in between. So hopefully it won't ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

I submitted an uncritted rough draft to Q1 (that I winced when I reread - I love the basic idea, but I completely mangled the execution of it), which is great for me not getting my hopes up. However, I wouldn't advise this method of hope management :) I'm just curious whether it will get an HM or an...

Re: Revised Honorable Mentions

For Q3 last year, I did submit a revised HM which ended up netting a Semi-Finalist. However, I'd waited three and a half years between the HM and that resub. I'd also known back then that there were major issues with the ending. So after letting it sit for over three years, and then taking another l...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

From today's conference call, Dave finished his second pass today, and will be starting his third (and, I think ,though am not sure, final) pass which, it sounded like, he is hoping to get through by Monday or Tuesday.

Won't be today. Next week is a definite possibility.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

For those of us still waiting, I looked back through records and it appears that Q1 HM and higher results have come out in the last week of April for the last several years. True, but the workshop has also been a week later the last two years. Based on past years, I'm betting on Monday, April 17 fo...

Well, after screwing around with Mass Effect Andromeda all day, I'm finally cracking down and making some needed tweaks to my story before sending it off for a final critique.

Anyone else working on their entry this weekend?

The award ceremony is April 2nd. I'm guessing we won't hear much more back until after then. As of yesterday, Dave's still in the middle of his 2nd pass, and expects it to be another week or two until he completes that. So unless there's a second round of rejections yet to go out from the first pas...

Technically, I'm still in as well, although I didn't even bother to enter this submission on the grinder since I have so little faith in it. I think it could be a great story one day, but it needs a major revision first. Subbed on the 31st of December. I'm much more excited about the story I plan to...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

Made my first submission in over three years on September 23rd. Revised one of my old HM's as I didn't have time to get anything new ready. Worst that can happen is I revised it into an R :) Currently writing something new for the next quarter.
