Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I saw the reminder for the Q4 deadline and feared it was a Q3 R. Luckily, that was not the case!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I got an HM as well. That makes me 4 for 4. Anybody have any suggestions for breaking through. I feel like my writing keeps improving. But I keep getting HMs no matter how I feel about my submissions.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I still haven't heard back from my query. But I guess it looks like an R at this point...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I haven't heard either. And I'm actually having a similar robo call problem. Interestingly enough, I wasn't getting them before this wait, now I'm getting them all the time. This is actually my favorite story I've ever written, and I have yet to receive an R (so far 3 for 3 HMs). So I really hope it...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

Any word for any of the other last day submitters? It seems like it's been a long time with no reports from anyone.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

Where are people getting the specific numbers, like 6 finalist spots left?

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

Related comment. Has anybody else here ever submitted to Tor? I sent them a story back in December before they cut off submissions and my status still says "in progress" 8 months later. Should I move on and submit somewhere else? Talk about a long wait. wotf004

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I'm out of the country and unable to receive phone calls. So I guess I can hold out hope that I was called? Probably they would have emailed though if they were unable to get in touch with me. So I'm assuming I'm in the batch of last day rejects. -Olivia (3 previous entries - all HMs, waiting to hea...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

In general, do people have success when resubmitting rewritten stories? I ask because I have an HM that I did a pretty major rewrite on, and I am considering submitting it next quarter.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I still haven't heard anything. I can't take it anymore. I really wish I had submitted before the last day. Guess I'll never do that again.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I keep expecting to see something from galaxy press today. Even if it's just a generic mailing list style email like the writing tips or reminders about next quarter submissions or something. When I get those, I usually at least know I'm not getting anything else. I'm in the batch of last minute sub...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I haven't heard anything yet and I'm soooo nervous. I think this was my best story yet, but who knows? Do you know if they ever send out more rejections after the first wave of HMs? That would be weird, right? Here's hoping I finally broke past the HM barrier. I'm also randomly paranoid they lost mi...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

Out of curiosity, does anyone know how they handle semi-finalist and finalist nods. I know that quarter winners and published finalists get called and that honorable mentions just get emails. But I wonder about the in-betweens.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I'm in. So far I've submitted three stories and they were all honorable mentions. Here's hoping this one (or my Q2 that I'm still waiting on) breaks through.

Critique For 5,000 word sci-fi story

I am looking to swap critiques with another science fiction writer for a story that is 2,500-10,000 words (mine is 5,000). I have entered the contest once before and received an honorable mention. I'm looking for a little help sending my story "over the edge" so to speak and would love to ...
