Hope you feel better soon, Francis.

That should make my Q3 story extra special!
Thanks for the well wishing everyone.
I'll probably be in pain for a few weeks. Hopefully not quite as swollen next week and able to drive again.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

It is quite possible that Meghan and I were reporting the same person. Her post came many after mine and she might have missed it. If any of that makes sense, I'm surprised with the meds kicking in...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

One of the guys I went to superstars with just got his HM today. Trying to figure out if it was a paper sub. *Update* he was in the hold pile also. So they are going through the holds now or sending out the results. Queue up more Thursday music! With the way this quarter has been going, should be b...

I haven't heard anything, but I've been in the hospital all week (was supposed to leave monday). I could use some good news if Joni wants to give me a call wotf006

We should try to get to 100. then if there is really a problem with the counter going that high, they'll have to finish quicker to keep us from overflowing the count. wotf004

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I've been wondering if this means those of us who haven't heard anything by now are pretty much destined for SHM or SF. I figure they must be contacting the Finalists, so at this point there are one or more they can't reach and that is the hold up. wotf017 Although I hope I'm wrong and still manage ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I had a crazy dream last night. I dreamt that the list of finalists came out. I looked at the list and I was #3 on a list of 7. I asked where was #8 and was told they were revising the story. I know makes no sense, but hey, it's my crazy dream in this crazy quarter. wotf019

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

My Q1 "held" story is based on a writing prompt from Writing Excuses. No details until the announcements so I don't break the anonymity. I actually spoke to Brandon Sanderson at Superstars and he told me to write him and tell him the outcome and they'd give me a shout out on their podcast....
