Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 37

Fi! Was this the long fantasy story? SHM is finalist-consideration pile! Hey Dustin! wotf019 Yes, it was. I'm happy with the final story, and have resubmitted it elsewhere unaltered, though I know 17K is a long shot most places. Had to fight to cut it down to that length, but as usual with cutting,...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 37

For me, lucky 13. I received my first Finalist! Grats on your finalist, kentagions! SHM for me. Nice after taking a break from short stories for a while. Just checking in to thank those who kindly beta'd my work, despite me not having been active on this forum for a few years. It was great of you t...

Anyone like to swap critiques? My story is 17K

Welp, I haven't been on here for maybe three years as I've been writing other things. If anyone's up for reading my 17K fantasy, then I'd love to swap a crit with you. Please PM me if you're interested. Edit: If you don't have a short story to swap, I'm happy to look at the first three chapters of y...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

I entered for the first time in several years, with a story I feel has no market, but which I really enjoyed writing. And I got an HM, and a note saying it was in the top 2%, which was really encouraging. Is that note usual now? It wasn't in my HM emails in the past. It would be nice to think that w...

I got an HM.

My story has now been christened. Time to send it out into the big wide world.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Oh gosh, you guys have brought back memories for me. Ancient Greek…

Yes, my teacher did actually try to teach us Ancient Greek, when I was about thirteen. It was my Worst Subject Ever!

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Welcome, Adrian. We bumped into each other on the board here earlier, but I just wanted to say hi again anyway. Nice to meet another Sydneysider! Australian SF and Fantasy seems to be full of grimdark stuff at the moment, if that's along the lines of dark fantasy and SF, at times veering into horror...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hi, I've entered the contest for the first time this quarter. I've been browsing the boards occasionally to see if I can pick up any news on the judging process and just to get more of a feel for the environment. It's fun reading everyone's rejectomancy. I will probably enter when I have a suitable ...
