Re: Success!

Anyone else start to twitch when you see, on submission grinder, the editor has rejected most everything older than your submission and has started rejecting ones submitted after yours? I know I shouldn't read anything into that but I imagine they have read my story and it is in the "maybe"...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

I guess that makes sense. If the ones that made it to the very top, but didn't get selected, could go right back in, then they would rocket to the top again and it would be near impossible for other contestants to get their stories in.

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

So, can a finalist be resubmitted? Would it be a good idea?

I apologize if this is the wrong place for the question Wulf but the answer might interest your current wolfpack? If I should move this to a different thread, please let me know.

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

I remember Liz's story. It was very inventive so it wasn't just a weird Western. I'd love to read the final product sometime.

So your being fourth is just as valid, at least from our perspective. We'd like to hear about your story, length, genre, and how you came up with it. Well. Damn it. I didn't see where you said anything Liz. Shoot. You're obviously writing at winner-level. I'm sure Wulf is right. When you get that h...

Honorable Mention for me. I wish we knew how many entrants, because that's basically like top 10%, right? Joni keeps the total number of entries secret so as not to discourage aspiring writers from entering. But Dave has publicly said "thousands" each quarter, so it's out there. As to 10%...
