Re: Penumbra Submissions

Ok, this Penumbra Submissions thing seems to always be active, but I've never paid any attention to it. Finally I decided to see why you all seem to like it so much. They always have a theme, the word limit is small and you have a decent chance of getting feedback. So it's like a quick challenge? I...

Re: Success!

OK, when I was cleared to go public with this news, I thought about Facebook. I thought about my blog. But first, first, first, I thought about all my friends here, because you've been cheering me on since the beginning. So you're the ones I'm telling first. (Well, almost first. Hi, Tina!) Gardner ...

Re: Penumbra Submissions

Rejection here, too. Really nice personal, though! Basically, she suggested I trim up the opening and send out again (somewhere else). She liked the story, just too slow of a start. Oh, well. wotf007

ETA: Good luck to everyone else still in the running!

Re: Penumbra Submissions

I just finished my story for the Egyptian theme issue. Wrote it yesterday. =)

I'm going to let it set before looking at it again, but is anyone interested in a swap a little closer to the deadline? If so, feel free to PM me!

Congratulations, Elinor! That's awesome!!

And Tom: Yes, I do believe Kitty thinks flame throwers are the epitome of fun. A great way to spend a Saturday evening. And I support her fun, so long as she's aiming those launchers elsewhere. ;)

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

That's a bummer, Ishmael, that they never responded about your Gaslight story. Or to your query about their lack of response.
