Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

I've cycled back to rejections. For those keeping track, I did get the first pass email (I can't remember if I checked in here when I did). I'm off to send the story somewhere else! wotf024

So much for submitting before the last day of the quarter...but I'm in for the 44th time!

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

I forgot to check in here, but I got the first pass email on September 10th (I submitted on June 30th). I also just realized it's almost the end of the quarter, so I'd better get something lined up. Looks like I'm not going to achieve my goal of not submitting at the last minute this time either....

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!)

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

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 - Q1 - Volume 35

I tried to submit earlier today and the application portal already says it is closed. I emailed my story to Joni, so hopefully, I'm in for Q1!

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...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

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!

I first entered the contest 10 years ago this quarter, and I've only missed one quarter since--this is my 40th entry wotf024

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

I was trying to track down a status update on my submissions here today, and I came across a recent comment on the guidelines, which asked the same question (scroll to the bottom of this page for the last question and response: http://blog.flametreepublishing.com/fantasy-gothic/2017-short-story-subm...
