Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

Can anyone explain the published finalist thing? I'm there to read the stories, not the bios, but I do usually read the bios and I don't recall anything about a finalist's story... My understanding is that, sometimes, they will choose to include stories from Finalists who did not win 1st, 2nd, or 3...

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

The acronym for Every Day Is Thursday is EDIT. Maybe it's a higher truth, telling us to stop twitching and get back to work ;) Best of luck to all. Results should be soon, I think. LOVED this! Thanks R! And just gotta say, I finished my Q4 draft today. Four days ago, I feared I'd have to revise an ...

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

Q2 was my first time entering the contest so I'm enjoying the veterans of the contests insights! I actually like my story for Q3 better than Q2, so don't have expectations of winning this quarter, but I'm twitching anyway. My Q4 story is a combination of historical fiction with fantasy so I'm mostl...

Thanks, Dragon & Disgruntled! :) (Got to love our names.) I know he won and others have, too. I'm just edgy and seeing that yesterday made me realize I don't know what I don't know. I do know I'm doing something right to get the HMs. I'd hoped the Q2 was good enough to at least receive a SHM if ...

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

I got HMs for my first two entries to the contest and am awaiting Q2 results with interest as the story I submitted for it I think is better than the first two. Watch me get my first rejection now... This is in contrast to my Q3 entry, which I really don’t like very much at all. Right there with yo...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

BTW, I've looked at a few of your exercises in this thread (got a story or two out of them), but I've never seen where you sign up and jump in. Is there a good place to start? What are the rules/expectations? If I have to read every response to understand, I won't do it and I want to.

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

Got it in with two hours to spare! Woot! There was more stuff I could have done and will likely have another chance to complete, but hey. It's in. It's a story influenced by one of Wolf's prompts and the WOTF workshop, so here's hoping.

Thanks, David. I'm always grateful for a critique! If you still have time by the end of this coming week, I will have made changes and need fresh eyes. Either way, I'll be happy to read yours, so send it to victoria_dixon@msn.com.

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

Good luck everyone! I wasn't nervous before, but now I am. I'm not sure what to think. It's kind of funny, when I submitted my story for Q1, I was super proud, but now I keep turning it over in my head, thinking of things I could have done better, to the point where I foresee a rejection... Me, too...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Workshop & Challenge!

Ok, I probably cheated since I don't have a clue what the rules are, but I've completed a flash fiction for my Ill-Fated Experiment. It's not Fantasy or S.F. I suppose you could say it's Humorous Horror. Does that count? Dear God, I wrote something funny.

The world really is ending.
