Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

I'm in. Fri 30/06. Random Q: has anyone discovered anything interesting by using the date of submission data? The waves seem to come all at once for everyone,from what I've seen, regardless of when you submitted in the quarter. Except for paper subs, of course.

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

Any ideas onto how? I am reluctant to email the contest director and suggest that she's wrong... But perhaps I could say there was a common interpretation on the boards that it is the fourth published Sfwa sale that disqualifies you, and ask for a blog post to clarify the situation for everyone?

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

I queried Joni on my 3rd sale; she said that I would be in eligible *upon publication* of my *3rd* SFWA qualified sale. Everyone told me on a previous thread that it should be interpreted as the 4th sale, but that is the message I got directly from the contest director, so make interpretations at yo...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

Guys, I got a first pass R as well. This is my fourth entry and second R. The first R that I got was for my first attempt in the competition. It was devastating, and confusing, and hit *hard*. I rewrote that story - especially the start - and got I upgraded to an HM. For those of you currently exper...

Ysocks, there must be something dodge going on with your email/registration. Check your junk box to make sure stuffs not going there, then maybe email Joni and see if she has any ideas or can send a test email or something.

Ishmael, I just wanted to say thanks for posting the link to SFWA approved markets. I just thought I'd accidentally pro'd out of the contest, but I checked the list and am still in. Re the contest rule that those with "more than three publications" are ineligible: a friend interprets this ...

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

I have a Time Travel story in. Unfortunately I think it breaks a cardinal time travel rule, but oh well, its my first time travel story. Did you guys see the single rejection on the grinder a few days ago? For a moment, I was very excited, absolutely certain that a wave of rejections was about to be...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

Quarter 1 is the worst. Do you all remember the good ol' days of Quarter 4? Those were some sweet response times.

We're past Greenroom's estimate of a week, and it IS a Thursday today, but I think Rebecca is probably right and we'll be looking at next week.
