Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I really think this quarter is going to be very delayed. I'm betting those Rs are holdovers from Q2. I think it may be premature to twitch.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I just checked my email from Joni last year, and my HM email from her came on 9/12. The official announcement email of the winners came in October. So hopefully we all still have a while yet. Plus, this year has been a bit rough, it seems, for Joni, and things are taking longer than she anticipates....

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

So for folks being held in the hopes of being a published finalist, how critical is anonymity? If one were to bump into Dave somewhere, can you say, "Hi! I was one of your finalists!" Can you mention your story at all? Say, "Hi, mine was the one with the dragon that ate lollipops (obv...

Congrats you guys! I am thrilled that two of us got 1st and 2nd! wotf010 wotf010 wotf010

I also didn't win. Like Rebecca, I'm letting them hold mine to see if it wins published finalist. It's been a crazy six months of waiting, what's six more?

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

It's been six weeks, two days. If you make to July, then you could in theory have four simultaneous submissions, one for each quarter in Volume 33. I'm bad. I haven't subbed this year except for Q1. I stopped to work on my novel, and then this whole finalist thing happened. Now I find that I hate e...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

Friday of the 4th week. No, I'm not twitchy at all. Nope. Not a bit. The worst part is, I know she's going to call at some point. The phone will ring at some point and it will be her voice on the other end and that voice will have one of two answers. Will I hear Joni's happy voice or her sad voice? ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

Here's the secret. Making finalist here was not a fluke. This wasn't your best story you'll ever write -- not unless you give up and stop writing. You write, you submit, you wait, and you will get another call. I guarantee it. If you're a finalist this time you have what it takes to be a finalist a...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

You know, if you think about it, early June isn't that far away...

No, who am I kidding? I'm a basket case. Part of me is dying for the phone to ring and part of me feels like it will be the tolling of the doom bell. I'm filled with a bizarre mixture of curiosity and dread.

Mostly I'm a mess.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

It's only been 2 weeks. So, I imagine it will be a few more. I'm going to assume since she's got so much going on it will take extra time.

I'm not nearly as chill as I'm trying to make it sound.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

My phone rang and on the other end of the line was... Joni! Holy cow, this soon? No. Not this soon. She was calling to make sure I'd gotten my V32 Q3 HM certificate! wotf019

So be warned! Joni's on the phone giving folks minor heart attacks!
