I queried Joni last Monday I believe, I still haven't heard a thing. wotf017 Same here. I'm guessing she has a lot of emails, or someone shuffled all of the pages together from everyone's email entries. This is what she emailed me last night: Did you hear from me yet?

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

I'm still waiting too. I emailed Joni at the start of the month and she said results would come soon--then came the waves but my email is still silent. I'd hate to bug her again but I am beginning to really think mine got lost. wotf014 I'll wait a little longer. She's got to be swamped.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

I think you're right, Brittany. Email submissions are, sadly, paper (That leafy stuff that comes in the mailbox). Joni has to physically receive and match them with their author info sheets (Which she generated herself in her infinite kindness) in order to act upon them. At least, that is my unders...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

And according to the writing tip he just sent out, he's finished judging Q2. Now we get to see how long the delay is between him finishing and Joni sending out notifications... I just saw that, too. I am actually twitching a little now... I'm twitching a lot. Like every time my phone pings... wotf005

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

Hi all! I was one of the 3/31 email entries. This was my first entry to anything like this, so I was expecting my "R", but haven't heard anything. According to greenroom, the email entries were not in the first wave of R's. Do we know if those are still forthcoming? I'm in the same boat. ...

Re: Progressive Chunk Exchange

So I'm late to the party but I'd be happy to exchange with one or two people. I prefer doing a small chunk first to see if we're a fit (1k or so) but after that I like looking over a whole story to see what worked and what didn't. My first time submitting was last quarter, so I have no stats yet. wo...
