Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

I can't bring myself to twitch on this one. I like the story I wrote, but I took some risks I think will end up hurting my chances. Don't know if it's actually a marketable story--it's just the one that latched on out of nowhere and wouldn't let go. I'm in the same boat as you. I think the idea beh...

Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

Thanks for the link, but I had actually already checked on there to see if there was anything. Unfortunately, I don't see Third Flatiron on there anywhere.

Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

Just got a rejection from Third Flatiron for their Longevity anthology. I'm sorry your story, “[Redacted]" didn't make the final cut for Third Flatiron's "Longevity"-themed Fall/Winter 2019 anthology. We hope you'll be able to find another home for it. We did enjoy reading this tale a...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

Thanks for the link. I had an idea I'd been mulling over for a while that I ended up writing for the epic fantasy volume. Any one else submitting to these anthologies?

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 35

Got an R...was hoping for an HM, but after one of those hinty blog posts from David Farland and rereading my own story and noting a mistake ( wotf017 ) it's what I expected. But I still have some faith in the story, so we'll see if I have any luck after another run through/revision. Oh well, congrat...

Re: Success!

After numerous attempts, I finally placed a story in DSF! It's the first pro market I've been published in, so I'm pretty pumped.

Hey, I'm kind of new, so I may not know what the judges like/dislike as well as others, but I would be down to swap if you wanted.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hi guys, I'm new. My name's Will, and I'm excited to meet you all. I've been a wannabe writer since like 2011, but only in the past year have I really buckled down and gotten seriously (and only within the past year have I started seeing some success!)
