Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

Anyone else noticed that Dave's Kick for today or was it yesterday's was what rejection really means? Haven't read it yet but But it made me say Hmmm Yes... I did notice and skimmed it. In a nutshell it was a warning to not give up just because you are rejected. He says it means you must try harder...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

For me, this is the funnest part. Soon results will begin to trickle in while some are still waiting to get definite word from Q2. The longer it takes to find out an individual result, the more hope and excitement builds up for him or her. Before you find out your fate, anything is possible! wotf011...

Re: V33 Q3 Guessomancy

I have a good feeling about those who subbed June 28 for some reason. wotf011 Don't know why. Anyway, good luck to all of you! I also think that those who have been submitting the longest will have a great chance to be in the top 3 (unlike me who has only submitted to WOTF once before although I rea...

wotf047 I feel like running back and forth. I don't have an entry in Q2, but am glad to see things moving along. Also, I'm doing my own twitching regarding a job hunt I started a couple of weeks ago. Also, I have an entry in Q3. Anyway, hang in there everybody!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I read yesterday that the most important reason to enter a contest is directed writing practice with a deadline. To me, it's fun to anticipate what will happen. Life without risk is dull. I feel really good about my first sentence and stopped before the story became hokey. Good luck to all, and happ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I started my Q3 entry 19 May, finished and submitted it 24, May. The last (and first time) I submitted a short story for WOTF was Q3 Volume 31. It was the first 15,000 words of so of my novel (before I revised and polished it) and got rejected. In addition to polishing my novel so it would be accept...

The "small announcement" is posted now. And somehow I feel this thread is the perfect place for such a wacky revelation. wotf004 Of course Gator is beginning to regret mentioning it, as she's starting to realize the full implications... https://ecaimansands.com/2016/06/09/a-small-announce...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello Kristy, Sorry to hear about your registration issues. I spent the better part of a morning (a week or so ago) trying to figure out avatars. But I don't recall troubles with registration, so it must be a recent phenomenon. I have an entry in 2016 quarter 3 after taking a 2 year break. So you've...

Hey, I entered my first WOTF entry for quarter three. I've enjoyed reading your posts. Not sure what I'm doing exactly, but I feel compelled to write science fiction. Luck to everyone!
