Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

Thanks for the congratulations everyone! It has been a (very) busy year - that's for sure! Just got a personal rejection from Flash Fiction Online as my story reached the final stage with them but wasn't quite good enough for publication (with them). Wow! They have a lot of readers and a lot of comm...

Got a nice personal rejection from Shimmer the other day. The story made it to the Board but ...

Wow Annie! How crazy! Will keep fingers crossed for you (and anyone from here who finds themselves in this situation this quarter). 'Grats to all those who received HM's. This was my first entry into WOTF, so naturally I was expecting a Finalist call. Just joking. Am happy with the HM - top 10% afte...

Sorry! Have been MIA for quite some time... But I still lurk every now and again. I'm still in, haven't received a rejection/response yet. Submitted on the 17th of Nov.

Re: Success!

Wahoo, sold another story to DSF. This is the second of mine that DSF have picked up and my third sale wotf008 The first one they bought a few months ago was flash fiction and this one is almost 4000 words. So, I am pretty stoked with that! wotf007

I shall just have to wait it out but just for interests sake - what kinds of things have been said in your personal rejections from BCS?

Re: Analog Submissions

I just got a 36 day form rejection from Analog for a flash fiction story wotf008

I was surprised it was there so long but had forgotten about Thanksgiving - which we don't celebrate in NZ. The story wasn't a great fit for Analog but you can't blame me for trying it out wotf004

Re: Q1 Volume 29

And bringing up another older topic on this thread, some of you submit your WotF stories to other markets before submitting to WotF. What if they get accepted? I mean, that's a great thing - being accepted for publication - but would you think 'Damn, that SO could have won WotF' or would you think '...

Have only just seen this thread and I know it's way back on the first page but I had to laugh at this comment: .... Maybe your next story should be on the rigors of child-raising, with an SF spin.
