Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

I waited longer than I wanted to (starting and finishing), but I'm in as of a few hours ago. (Bonus: the portal wasn't closed this time!)

I'm slow to report in on this one, but I was one of the ones who submitted after the portal closed early, and I received an Honorable Mention email on April 25th!

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

I haven't done a good job of reading the forum lately, but I think this is great! With my entry today, I'm starting my second decade of 4 contest submissions each year. I cut it closer than I have in a long time on this quarter, so this will be good motivation to make sure I start early on the next ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

My other impressive statistic is that 39 of my submissions are consecutive--I submitted and then immediately missed the next quarter, but I haven't missed another since. I can't say that my persistence has paid off with the contest (yet wotf007), but it has helped me generate a lot of stories! 32 of...

I keep forgetting to report in here, but I submitted on September 29th, and I just received the confirmation a few minutes ago, so I'm in for Quarter 4!

This was an interesting exercise for me because I usually only pay attention to stats I have control over (mostly stories written and submitted, rather than those accepted or published), but it looks like I've had 4 stories published this year, which is the most I've had in one year: "The Day t...
