Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

She left a voicemail for me when I was a finalist last year, and then called back later.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Surely once Dave has recorded the result on the electronic copies, it is simply a matter for Joni to press a button? I feel for her if she has to manually go through and add them to the "R" email list.

Still going through crits and doing the final polish. I should probably do an outloud read through, as well, but this one is at the upper word limit ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

OMG!! Congratulations! That is SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There aren't enough exclamation marks in the world right now.

You should totally ask Joni about the other judges the next time you speak to her, though.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

It’s been a week, JF, have you heard? Did Joni tell you how long they’d take to judge?

When you do hear, don’t forget to ask her which judges judged your quarter.

Congrats JF! And good luck :) I feel like it’s time for another forum win.

I do quite like the current trend of everyone hearing at the same time.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Now we are in the last week, one of traditional heavy traffic. Also remember the online entry system has a habit of shutting down part way through the last day, so if you're going to run it to the line, make sure you have Joni's email. And, for what in all probability will be my lost shot at the ti...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

I did not place either :( I'm not as sad about this outcome as I expected to be. Finalist is still pretty awesome, and like peony, they're holding it for published finalist. That's, what, like a 1 in 15 chance of getting to the workshop? 2 in 15 if they take two PFs. Still pretty good odds consideri...

I just got my first HM. wotf008 Now to figure out how to make the next jump. No time to rest on my current submission. Congrats to those who have made finalist! Do you got any advice on how to make that leap from HM? All the blog posts seem to point to profundity. My honest suggestion would be to t...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

I'm not sure what te average gap between waves is, but last quarter it was 3 weeks between first Rs and the wave with HMs etc ... Then something like 3 days till Amy got her finalist call :)

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

Wow, this is quick! Commiserations for the early Rs. They are so rough to see after all the work that goes into an entry. Peony, I caught your paranoia and also checked my spam folder. Still nothing. Phew!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

I'm in. Fri 30/06. Random Q: has anyone discovered anything interesting by using the date of submission data? The waves seem to come all at once for everyone,from what I've seen, regardless of when you submitted in the quarter. Except for paper subs, of course.

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

I have a Time Travel story in. Unfortunately I think it breaks a cardinal time travel rule, but oh well, its my first time travel story. Did you guys see the single rejection on the grinder a few days ago? For a moment, I was very excited, absolutely certain that a wave of rejections was about to be...
