Never an unwelcome result. It's a tough field.

Best of luck to all those who remain in the hunt.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

In as of 12/30.

Rather fond of this one. In the past, that has meant a straight R. We'll see.

Re: Magical Realism?

My piece that made SHM last quarter (by far my high mark here) was MR.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

wotf056 After four Rs and an HM, with a weird experimental piece for which I was expecting a hard R. One of my weaknesses as a writer is that I have no sense at all of which of my stuff appeals to professionals. Ah, well. A pleasant surprise. Congratulations to the HMs and above, and commiserations ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Submitted 9/18.
It's daring and unconventional, but those two things are not necessarily the same as "good".
A home run swing leaves the batter looking pretty foolish sometimes. Still, nothing to lose... wotf017

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

3/27.

I've a bit of a history of getting no rejection email and having to contact the contest staff to inquire. Hence I'm never quite sure, on days like this, whether to feel hopeful or whether to start slamming my head against a wall.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

First entered the contest in 2015; never managed to register here due to the forum bug. Now there's no bug, so there's me.

Five Rs; nothing higher. Current contest entry submitted 3/27.

Pleased to see many writers here with whom I've interacted in other writing fora.
