Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

Cute smiley, but I won't agree with it. It is not a bad thing to get an 'R'; the worst thing is to miss a quarter.
Getting a rejection just means that we should improve our writing. I will do so. wotf008

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

wotf010 Congrats, KD! With 6 "almost there" steps and the perseverance to take an HM story, trim it and reinvent where necessary... you must write a book about it!
Or wait, I saw in my crystal ball that the best is yet to come. Way to go! wotf009

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

I keep on reading the email about my first HM... tell me that I am not the only one doing this. Anyway, what was the idea with the special notice at the end? "I WILL BE SENDING YOU NEWS IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REGARDING THE MOST EXCITING CONTEST NEWS EVER! BE LOOKING FOR THE E-MAIL. " (Capita...

Or green, for some. wotf007
BTW, what "acceptance" means for WotF on the SubmissionGrinder? Everything from HM up, or just the finalists?

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

I managed to send the text with only a few hours remained to spare. The story could be in better shape; but who is ever satisfied with the result? wotf001

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

Okay, no more twitching. Thanks for the update, Wulf.
And for the advice. Staying indoors is the best thing to do, indeed. Let's prove that humankind is smarter than the virus.

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

Now that I received my rejection, I can publicly confess. I started my story with my protagonist waking up. It may not have been good enough otherwise but that didn't help. Same here, my MC is proudly waking up quite at the beginning. First-round for me, first rejection, meaning that from this poin...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hi, My name is Nic; I write software code to pay the bills and sci-fi to continuously train my imagination. English is not my native language, so please bear with me if sometimes I say something goofy. The first submission sent for Q2; hopefully, a new one will be ready for Q3. Thanks for accepting ...
