Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

I'm out, too. Strangely, this story was HM a while back and I revised it...I guess not for the best. Disappointing but now it's time to start the next one.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

Oh god. It says the applications are closed. It's 3pm here in GM10+ (Sydney) on the 30th and they've closed down. I've emailed Joni (I think?), but now I'm seriously worried. Any advice? I'm having this problem too :( I'll email Joni. But Jeremy, I think we'll have to resign ourselves to a long and...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I'm out. Got my rejection in the wee hours of the morning. I had thought this was my last quarter of remaining eligibility, but when I checked with Joni to be sure she said I'm still good for Q4. So...twitchiness for most of the rest of the year ensues. This time I was sort of numb to rejection. My...

All great advice from everyone. I ditto Donald Maass--he is amazing!! I got to eat lunch with him at a conference one year, and he was so inspiring. He's passionate about what he writes, and spot on. His "Writing the Breakout Novel" was my life-changing writing book. A must read for any no...

Re: WOTF simultaneous submissions

The problem: I haven't been able to get agents to look at my manuscripts. I figure I need some more cred, a published story in IGMS or WOTF for instance. I figure that way I can't be ignored, at least not as much. For what it's worth, I learned a ton about query letters on Janet Reid's site. You ma...
