Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

Results so far have come during the night for me since I'm in the CET timezone. So this past week I've checked my emails immediately the moment I've woken up.

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

Finished the first draft for my Q4 story. Should have it cleaned up in a few days. My goal is to submit by the end of the week. If results for Q2 don't come out before then that'll mean I'll have 3 stories pending. Exciting! Anyone willing to swap stories? wotf008 I'll swap with you, though it'll b...

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

If someone submits their Q4 this coming week, they might even have three in queue. I'm starting to twitch, though it's like a murmur right now. Think it was Beth Powers that wrote earlier in this thread that she had had responses for previous Q2s come back through end of July. So we could still be i...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

I'm in for Q3. Just sent it in, a fresh one.

I've been absent from the forum all of June (focusing on edits on my novel) and missed out on the awesome flash piece assignment, but it sounds like it helped.
I'll be sure to jump in on that next time!

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

Can some of the necessary information be sprinkled through out the rest of the story to allow the beginning to be sleeker? Just a thought. Good Luck! That's just it. The stuff I'm debating isn't necessary to the development of the plot but it is to the character and setting and since the setting ch...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

Good luck on fleshing it out. You've still got a little more than a month.
I'm trying to tighten the beginning of mine. It's too long, but I'm having difficulty choosing what parts to trim off in order to not lose the story's essence and light humor.

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

I've been mentally working on a fresh idea for Q3. Early this morning it began to gel. Time to let it flow. wotf042 Go go go go go! One of the twins got sick the day before they turned six months old (cold plus pneumonia in one lobe of one lung) and still has some minor symptoms, although he's most...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

I'm starting to wonder if I'd do better to simply aim at novels instead of short fiction. They're what I really want to write anyway. They're just... really hard for me to retain my momentum on. If you treat every chapter like a short story, it's easier to keep the momentum. That's one of the thing...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

The only story I have resubmitted to this contest was an outright R that I firmly believed was a mistake. It became my Q1 entry and, uh, I don't have the final results on it yet... Exciting!

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

I'm wondering what happened with the SHM. Did none of us forumites get one or are they doing away with that type of honor or is it being delayed like semi finalists?

In the podcast, Dave talks about still having 25 stories to choose his finalists from (which we know he finished judging beg of last week), so I think Tim and OSC were talking about Q4.

Ya that means that results for Q1 won't get back before tomorrow or Thursday at the earliest considering how many of those emails she has to send out today
