Re: Penumbra Submissions

I was just ready to put in a sub for the Paranormal issue, but I've been up and down and over the Penumbra site and I can't seem to find the editor's name. Which is weird, I must be missing something. Ah well.

Can anyone help me out with that?

Re: Resources for Illustrators

Two places I've learned lots from:

ConceptArt has some of the best illustration forums and pro workshops around.

Muddy Colors is a joint blog by some of the top industry pros. Amazing advice flying around here.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Incidentally, I had a dream about the contest too, except there were so many non-sequitors it ended up like a Doctor Who episode on acid, so I have no idea who won. Is there a difference between a Doctor Who episode and a Doctor Who episode on acid? Ha! Well, not so much in the new ones, at least.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

I think my previous losses have deflated my ego when it comes to the contest. Technically, I could be a finalist over and over and never win. Clearly my subconcious is trying to prepare me for a personal loss by building up my confidence that you guys'll win. wotf008 Yeah but, yeah but, yeah but......

Anyone else get post-submission jitters and attacks of self-doubt? I do. All the time. It usually goes away after a few days while writing on a new project. Same here. Just nice to know I'm not alone. =) Found this quote and I'm framing it: "The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfe...

Also did anyone else notice that our new member and Finalist, Holly, is also a talented illustrator? Well, if Holly comes back on she can tell us if she's been submitting to the illustration side...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Thanks for the welcome!

Looks nice, Kary. :)

Seems like a lot of you are prolific short story writers, but I tend to think in novels or novellas. I've only actually written a handful of shorts, and that's one thing I'm working on, getting better at short form. I guess something's going well!

Hi Holly! I'm assuming you weren't told to be silent, as we usually are. Odd that, two people announcing... Maybe something was different about Joni's message first quarter?

Howdy! I'm Holly. I'm one of the 1st Quarter finalists (I'm still trying to wrap my head around that!), and got generous invites to come join the fun here, so I'm here. :) I write a general smattering across scifi and fantasy, typically ending somewhere in between. I do art and design, too, and play...
