Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

Updated through here, I think.

Just FYI, as of the Tuesday wave, Dave still hadn't finished his first pass on the paper subs (aka anything mailed in or emailed into Joni on the last day).

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

The blog is up, finally! I hope this means we're a bit closer to hearing about Q2. When I talked to Joni on the phone, she indicated that Dave had already set a few stories aside for a second pass. The first Thursday might be right around the corner! Last week, Dave said he was nearly done with his...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

How do people on here know to update their status to rejected then? Just based on inference because other people were informed of HM or SHM etc? While very nice to receive, HMs, etc., are still technically rejections. Only the winners and any published finalists are actual acceptances. I recognize ...

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.

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...
