Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

Anyone care to speculate what place you'll receive? ...yes, I know some y'all will view this as sick or perhaps cruel.... But let's roll with it. In the past three months, I've gone from thinking "I'm sure to win"... To "I'll be lucky to get HM". Now, I'm thinking SF. Reason: my...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

Potentially silly question here: does anyone know what number Joni calls finalists/winners on? The closer the end of the month gets the more paranoid I get that if (and that's a big, hopeful if) I get a call I'll miss it! why, are they going to cancel your entry if you fail to answer the call? wotf...

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!) Continue to kick butt, Will. Welcome to the cl...

Just got Mr. Farland's newsletter over email, and let me say that it seems he is *definitely* in the middle of some WOTF stories. And he has *opinions*.

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

I wonder how many waves of “those” emails will go out? Surely more than 1, given the # of entries... I suppose it'll depend on how much of the process Ms. English is doing. If she's just giving them a cursory glance than many more waves will go to Mr. Farland, but from what I've read both on here a...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

Just got an email from Joni saying I made it through the "first pass" my story is still in the running for Q3 so it will now be reviewed by DF. Who else got an email? I got one as well! I turned in last quarter's entry pretty early though, so maybe that has something to do with it? Incide...
