Re: Quarter 1 Writers and illustrators of the Future Vol 35

Rejection for me. I found several errors and just hoped they wouldn't see them... Lol... So I'm going to submit my super-tweaked version.

Good luck to those still waiting.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Oh my goodness... To check in here tonight, expecting silence... wotf015 I submitted hardcopy, so I'm guessing that means I'll find out dead last!? This wait is even worse now! CONGRATULATIONS to the HMs, semis and finalists! To the RS, I think I'll be joining your club. But as has already been said...

This is a problem. It's extremely difficult for me to move on before a conclusion has been reached on a previous work.

I'm tweaking my submission to death instead of finishing anything else. wotf051

Re: Reject Rejectomancy!

Good reminder. This is probably why it's taken me 17 years to even submit a story.
It's a 100% non-rejection rate for unsubmitted stories.
A rejection is closer to success than an unsubmitted non-rejection. wotf011

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

Oh yes, it was rare for me, first time it happened. Developing an anchor and getting ideas built up did that. And I got splashes on my computer to prove it. ;)

Congrats on writing each morning!

You may have a perfect storm some time too.

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

At a workshop, Dave and his son (cannot remember his name) discussed creating anchors. I picked up swimming in January and of course -didn't have my phone. So, my mind wandered all on its own... Then I started anticipating it and thinking intentionally of scenes I wanted to figure out or questions i...

Re: Contest Questions

Question asked from newbie Jason on the intro thread I'm also wondering...

Do they offer a critique for our entries?

Thanks!

My name is Jason. I submitted my first entry to WotF for the first quarter of 2018 and am eagerly awaiting to see if it makes any headway. Question for the veterans here: how do they let you know that you got any of the awards? Do they call? Email? Do they send it back with critique? Or do they sim...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

They shipped it early... I'd be like, not my fault, tear that baby open, do a happy dance, write a post on Facebook with security set to "only me," then tell no one until the release date.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Another question. The website wasn't working when I submitted, so I had to do hard copy... Does that mean I'll be notified of results by snail mail? The wait is killing me already even though I'm pretty chill and patient in the real world. You regulars are both helpful and hyping things to an unheal...

Is it common to submit the same story (with extra editing /tweaking) for the contest more than once?
