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?

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

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.

Yep, sounds about right. *sets up pillow fort, hands out blankets and hot cocoa*

I'll bring the brownies. Give me just a minute. I'm on my way.


And i'll bring a classic movie to watch while we twitch and stuff our gobs in anxiety. Any suggestions?

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

A good crime mystery in SFF is always fun to read!

I've got an idea for my Q3, but am not able to start writing it just yet. What with editing my novel and then finishing a novelette, I hope to get to it by mid May.

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

Considering the awards ceremony is Friday, I doubt we'll get results this week. With the WotF updates on Facebook, Joni seems really busy. Also, I'm amazed Dave got through the judging so quickly considering his health issues.
