Re: Rejection

Sorry for the late reply: I’d be happy to take a look if you still need more eyes on it.

My turnaround time is skewed at the moment (niece and nephew visiting for the next few weeks), but I’d be happy to help.

I’m so sorry, BLalley... I thought you were being snarky. My sincere and deepest apologies. After visiting your website I can understand why you see the world through a suspicious filter. Here's my final bit of advice: We make money as writers by selling our work, not our process. *raises an eyebro...

I didn’t have any issues when I changed mine recently.

That said, I uploaded the picture instead of linking it externally. How are you doing yours?

The first judge you have to get by in this contest is David Wolverton (aka David Farland). He has a pretty amazing writing tips blog where he’ll periodically drop nuggets of info alluding to where he is in the judging process.

Re: Four in Thirty-Five (4 in 35!)

I'm torn. First, I wrote this comedic sci-fi piece and was going to submit it, but it needs a bit more work than I want to spend on it right now. Next, I have a flash fiction piece some folks were nice enough to critique for me, but, in a fit of over-confidence in editorial timelines, I submitted it...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Well, welcome to the group! You’re in good company.

If there’s one thing I can attest to, it’s we’ve all have felt, or currently feel, that way. This is, by far, the least judgmental, yet helpful group of commiserating hopeful (and current) authors you’ll find. :)

Re: Four in Thirty-Five (4 in 35!)

I'm down for a swap if anyone is ready. Ended up writing something completely different *stares longingly at original Q3 idea outline* so the piece I'd be exchanging is a flash story at ~300 words.

Re: Discussion - Q2 - Volume 35

I take a class from Dave as well and he's apparently battened down the hatches and gone into full novel-writing mode recently. Not sure how that'll affect results, but figured I'd share.
