Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

Story entered (on what is technically the 1st for me :p). Because I'm in the future, I don't normally run into the portal closing early problem but all better now.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

I realised on the way home today that I hadn't actually submitted my story this quarter. So I went to do it as soon as I got home and of course it says submissions are closed -_- It's a story I don't think has much of a chance, for reasons, but not submitting will definitely reduce that chance to ze...

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

I'm just glad they sent the rejections. I saw all the acceptances for the one I'd subbed to first, and often when acceptances pop up first, rejections aren't ever sent.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

Because I wasn't in the first wave, I am now presuming my entry has been mislaid and I will receive my rejection after winners have been and gone.

People have, on occasion, accused me of pessimism >>

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

My Q1 story would be perfect for Supernatural. Pity it's the long quarter.

Tried to think of something else and... blank.

I think I've actually decided on a story! Before we even hit the final month! It's a long one (for me... short for others :p).

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

Welp, I'm in. Don't think it's a very WOTF-y story, but the stories I think might be crash badly anyway so maybe I'll be surprised.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

I need to figure out what I'm writing this quarter. With NaNo and Xmas and all that, the lots of time to the deadline is going to quickly turn into no time :S

Rejected.

The subject line on the email being 2nd quarter confused me (the email was correct), but the rejection itself was unsurprising. I still hoped though!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

Back to internets in time to sub something, and the only thing I have is a no-chance-in-hell story. But then I thought my other stories were chances and they were straight rejections, so maybe a no-chance-in-hell is my-only-chance-in-hell?

Or maybe I'm still jetlagged >>

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I received a rejection back around the 17th. I've been on holiday for the past month so no internet for me. Also not really bothered by the rejection given it came in between lions and swinging into gorges wotf008

Good look to those still waiting.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I live in FriThursdayland, and I have my R (along with a bunch of other rejections because apparently they like company).

It was my best story yet too, but then, every new story tends to be my best story yet wotf017 I'll get it out again into the world again this weekend.
