Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Finally sat down and submitted my story. Normally I'm a last minute submitter, but I'm going to be somewhere in the middle of the Nullarbor when the end of the month rolls around (actually, I think we'll have reached Albany or something then, but the point stands). Been ready for ages (it's a heavil...

Re: Four in Thirty-Five (4 in 35!)

34 was the first time since I started editing I wasn't in for all four quarters.It doesn't seem to have helped me much on the improvement front :p

But I shall try to get my consistency back with 35!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Officially NOT in.

But I'm getting back into writing/editing mode so hopefully I will have something awesome for next quarter. And I'll make sure I start it in October in case I get sick for the next two months again >>

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

I love the covers to the Flame Tree anthologies and would love to get a story in more for them... but they always seem to have such short submission times. By the time I see it, it's basically over!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Due to illness (and laziness, but I'm absolutely blaming the illness) I am unlikely to get something in this quarter. It will be the first quarter I've missed since I started entering. A miracle might happen, I guess, but if it doesn't, maybe I can take the time to actually learn how to write a dece...

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: Success!

My story 'Watercress Soup' is on the Aurealis Awards shortlist.

I responding in a perfectly dignified way to finding this out. Over here. In my house where there is no one to see me and call me a liar :p

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.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

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.

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 >>
