Re: Writing Room/Office/Space

Since both my husband and I are writers, we don't really have writing spaces. We both just write in the living room. Though occasionally we bring out the headphones if one or the other of us is deep in concentration and want to avoid disturbances. We do have a desk and chair in the spare room that w...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

Alright, my story is off and away, with 10 days left to spare. But I knew if I waited any longer, I'd still be picking at it on the 30th.

Re: If I get a fourth professional sale while I'm waiting for the results, do I get disqualified?

Thought I'd point this out. To quote the contest rules: 5. The Contest is open only to those who have not professionally published a novel or short novel, or more than one novelette, or more than three short stories, in any medium. Professional publication is deemed to be payment of at least six ce...

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

However... Flame Tree have a habit of sending acceptances first, rejections after (you can see the pattern on the recent responses on the Grinder). Yeah, this is a procedure that I really don't understand... As someone who helps run a small press, we send out rejections on stories that we know we c...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

HM for me, which is better than the flat out rejection last time. :)

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

The best thing in the world for the waiting is work. My agent advised me that my next novel submission had a few too many typos. (Yeah I really suck at proofing.) So I am having my computer read it out aloud, the entire 80600 words. That should keep me out of trouble while Dave decides which catego...

Mad Scientist Journal looking for stories and ads

My husband and I run a crazy little zine called Mad Scientist Journal. We've just reopened to submissions for flash/short stories and classified ads for mad scientists, which are a lot of fun to write and read. We are a token paying market, but we do take reprints. For this specific call, the storie...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

"Which WOTF judge wrote Anubis Gates?" Man, gotta love the Capcha on this board! My favorite of Tim Powers is actually On Stranger Tides, and he signed the hardcover for me at a World Fantasy with an awesome drawing of Blackbeard. I'm in, with a record hour and ten minutes to spare! First...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hi, all! New here (like many others). I've submitted to the contest twice, with an R the first time, and still waiting to hear this time. I just recently had my first official pro sale and joined SFWA as an associate member. AND I have book coming out in two days. It's already looking to be a wild r...
