Re: Discussion - Q2 - Volume 35

Are you willing to share this latest one with me so I can see what it takes to get HM? And I just got served. A silver honorable mention for Q2--the judge's way of saying if you give this another pass, it could be a finalist next time. This makes 12 honors out of the 13 times I've entered with David...

Rejected.

But apparently the “good news” is that I can get access to writing tips that only winners were allowed to see before...

Re: Discussion - Q2 - Volume 35

So we in for another couple weeks of waiting, for Q2 results? No problem if it is...just a first time entrant here. So I might be a little hyper.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

I have been checking everyday in the hopes for finalist news! This must be agonizing for you guys... Beavs, I personally don’t expect to hear q2 results till at least mid July. At the moment, the process seems to be the finalists get notified by a phone call, and not long after that everyone else g...

It always takes a long time to get results for Q1 and Q2 back, and there's not an exact timetable. I know it sucks, but the best option is simply to try and be patient.[/quote]


Thanks! Appreciate the encouragement.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Can someone help me out? Let me see if I understand all this? The portal closed early for Q1 this year. They realized their mistake and allowed additional entries? Then this backlogged the results so they have not yet published the winners? Is this correct? Are there any websites up that have a list...

Re: Who’s familiar with Dwight Swain’s scene/sequel format?

Following conversation. I bought Swain's book and am interested in this dialogue. The part that confuses me is just how large these are? Depending on the website or blog I visit, I get a different answer. One website gave an example using the entire book format of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol....

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Thanks so much! 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?...

Re: What's a Silver Honorable Mention as opposed to a regular HM?

How did they let you know you won the SHM? Phone call? Email? Or did you find out by seeing it on the webpage? Well, it's about time. Been trying to sign into the forums for ages. Guess those bugs got ironed out. I got an HM last year in the third quarter, but I was wondering what differentiates a S...
