Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

It'd be a challenge, but one of my best stories came out of challening myself to write something to spec.

Re: Five Minute Rant

I've been finding most of the markets which qualify you and you can submit to online are often closed (Cemetary, BullSpec, etc.). Especially after you get 30+ stories out at market.

Re: Five Minute Rant

Rant Rant Rant! Penumbra rejected my one story which I had been waiting on for so long.

Oh well, sounds like it'll end up being my Q3 entry.

Off to the presses.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I could say the same for Penumbra with their politics issue right now. I did get my R early, so at least my story's out there right now attempting to make a living.

Also, it's kind of bad when I just started my Q3 entry. May end up being my Q4 entry instead now.

One of the first chapters of my novel is out at Stupefying. 60+ days and counting.

But, welcome new members. Watch out for the Evil clones of us running around.

You know, by doing this, you only give Evil Mike a chance to come out again... Then again, I hold my limit at 35 until my novel gets done. Which is still in Chapter 2 Part 3...moving rather sluggishly. I need to get the ideas down and get to my second Interlude...which I don't know what I'll do for ...

In a follow-up to my success at AE, I happened to check SFWA's website today. AE is now a qualifying market.

Guess who may end up being an Associate Member of SFWA real soon... wotf007

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I hear a lot of Evil Martin on here. Evil Mike would be here to join you, but typically he's too busy with a pirate accent dropping the nation of Demasia on other people (aka League of Legends playing Gangplank and Garen).

Congrats Marina. I have one more which I would submit to Mirror Shards, but it's in consideration at Penumbra (the other wasn't strong enough to fit with the theme).
