Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 35

Wow it's been a while since I posted here, but just wanted to pop in and say I've just submitted for the first time in over a year! Granted, it's only a revised story, but my hope is to keep going and at least submit another revised story for Q1. Still a long ways away from being better health wise,...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Well I know I'm not going to make it this quarter. Too many unexpected health problems that I'm still trying to deal with. Didn't even have the time or energy to write these last few months. Hopefully I can get back on track for the next quarter. It's a whole new year with 4 new chances to make it t...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

Got a call this morning with no caller ID which has never happened to me before. But....they left no message so it couldn't have been Joni. Still, I did not need that extra added twitching!

Re: ILLUSTRATORS' Q & A

Hi Yinny and welcome to the forum! Always nice to see another illustrator here as it can be very rare! I wish I could give you more insight into how results on the illustrator side of the contest works, but it's been very difficult to see any kind of pattern. The last time I submitted I never heard ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

I'm in! Feels good to be back after a year of no subs! Hopefully my dry spell is over and I can move on to the next story. Would really love to win with this one but I'll have to get through the twitching first. Ah it's all coming back to me now!

Never got a chance to pop in here and say welcome to all the new forum members!

I agree with Dustin I would love for this forum to become more active on the Illustrators side! As one of the rare members here who submits to the Illustrators I've always found it a challenge to find any advice, tips or experiences from fellow artists. I hope now that the sign up glitch on the foru...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

Not sure if I'll be able to make this quarter. I really wanted to especially since I already missed the last two quarters and I don't want to miss a third in a row. I don't know why but lately I've just been in a funk with my writing. Maybe it has to do with having lost my job. Ever since then I've ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

I don't think I'll be in this quarter either. My story is almost completed but I would hate to send in what I feel would be a first draft, especially without any critiques. My goal has been quality not quantity, so I think I'd rather wait and hope to get HM or higher instead of rushing to finish whi...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

I had been stuck on my Q4 story for months, but now that I know the fate of my Q3, it's ignited some kind of writing fire in me. And now realizing there's only 2 weeks left, the pressure seems to have erased my writers block. I think I may just finish in time!

Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

Ok either C.C. Finlay is some kind of power reading machine that plows through every story entry, or he must have really taken a liking to my work. I just got my second personal rejection from F&SF this month. I really hope this is a good sign, and he doesn't just read and critique all entries. ...

Well I'm pretty excited. Just got a personal rejection from F&SF, and it's my first personal outside of Writers of the Future! I know it's technically still a rejection, but it makes me feel like people are finally starting to take notice of my writing.
