Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Congratulations to all the Finalists, Semi-finalists, and HMs!
Back to the drawing board for me! I’m sure it’s just due to being new at this but the R stings....hopefully that part will get easier.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

I guess what I just received constitutes an R. Email said my story had been judged and did not place. First time through the process...hopefully the next time will be better.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Cool. Also anticipating an R until proven wrong.

I missed my goal of 4 in 35 already. Selling, buying, building a house then moving killed me. Missed 2nd quarter but am on track for a 3rd quarter rally!

I guess there’s no way to tell when the notifications will be sent out based on that though, is there?

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello to all. I submitted my first entry ever just last week. I’ve been writing for about 12 years but I never had the cojones to submit to a contest or publisher. I finally got out of my own way and decided that writing is going to be my new full time profession (good or bad) as soon as I reach ret...

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

What do you mean by "simultaneously submit?" When story A is submitted to the Contest, I don't submit story A to Publisher X until *after* it fails to win in the Contest. I think typically "simultaneous submissions" is used to mean "I have Story A submitted to Publisher X a...

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

Thank you all for the advice and encouragement. I’m about to sit down to turn out another tale. Do most of you who are submitting for the competition also simultaneously submit to publishers, magazines, anthologies, etc? I guess if you’re good (and lucky) you’ll either chalk up a win in the competit...

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

I just submitted my first ever entry! Sooo, when do the butterflies subside? I’ve put off submitting for several years due to a lack of confidence and probably fear. Super excited to finally have something “out there” for others to see.

Good luck to all.
