Re: First Four-Fifty Critique Exchanges

Okay, I think I'm far enough into my Q4 story to have the first 450 words of it critiqued. wotf013 Who's up for a swap?

Re: Five Minute Rant

Based off the recent Topanga Canyon incident, that may be slightly less bad news than one would think.

Still rant-worthy, but - you know.

Re: Has the line between sci fi and fantasy changed?

Yes, this BA English graduate also gave a big sigh of relief. I keep feeling like I shot myself in the foot by pursuing English and Dance instead of other languages or history. It still would have been helpful, but I guess that's why I married a microbiologist!

Re: Success!

Ha okay my phrasing was rather fatalistic - I've been a little down on my writing the last two months. But you never know! I do quite like that story - it got a personal rejection from IGMS and Schubert said it was very well-written, so... I have hope for it.

Re: Success!

Dustin - I read your story a couple days ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great job! This market will also be the next place I send my best flash story, once it comes back from Asimov's.

Alex - congrats!!! I love your writing so this sale doesn't come as much of a surprise!

Re: Worldcon for Beginners

Mike Resnick is awesome. wotf003 Holy crap. It's posts like this that show how some people really do things JUST to help other people, not because it will benefit them in any way. None of this was for Mike's benefit - he spent however long it took to type all this up to help poor fools like me.

About 6 years ago I was taking my annual dance trip, which happened to be Los Angeles, and I was going alone that year.
