They talked about judging for "this quarter." Do we think that's q1?

If so, there was a little hint that a story told in present tense did well.

Commence twitching.

If she's stuck on jury duty, this could be a while, dang it.

Good news is I'll probably have a phone early next week. Ordered a new one yesterday. Yay! *Still scouring emails as that is the most likely source of news. Nothing. Reminds self Joni is still on jury duty...*

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

But I am getting very tired of the you-are-not-a-winner calls and I very much hope that next time I get the other call... It's gotta happen soon! Has anyone been a finalist more than you?

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

Yeah, I think last quarter only took 2 weeks (or less really for the winners. Pretty sure I got my 'not a winner' call AFTER Moon. And how long ago did Dave say his part was done?). BUT that's quarter 4, where everyone is scrambling to get things finished for the anthology and whatnot. Could be. Cou...

Takes chocolate and snarfs it down. Opens the deep freeze and pulls out the ice cream.

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

There was a sci-fi crime one a few years back. Police officer with an addiction to a super-power inducing drug. Used it one last time to solve a crime before turning himself in. It was really cool-also broke Dave's rules about having drugs in a story. If done well...

Re: Writers of the Future asks for your podcast input.

I'd love to hear what specifically drew judges to the winning stories and what inspired the authors of the stories to write what they wrote (winner interviews). Also tips, what judges look for... And how to level up or advance in a writing career.

I was also a finalist last quarter and also told to remain quiet until the second call (as I didn't win, I immediately posted my results after call two. I was still pretty stoked). Shrug.
