Yeah, that's how I've been feeling about Q2. XD

Yes, half the fun of submitting is being able to fret in harmony with everyone, instead of in a room all by yourself waiting on a reply from an editor or agent.

It makes the wait a party. A really twitchy party, but it does make the waiting more fun.

My predictions for Q3? Everyone on the Forum gets Finalist.

Oh. Wait. It doesn't work like that, does it?

Well, it's my dream and I can dream it any way I want. So there. wotf017

I have a good feeling about those who subbed June 28 for some reason. wotf011 Don't know why. Anyway, good luck to all of you! I also think that those who have been submitting the longest will have a great chance to be in the top 3 (unlike me who has only submitted to WOTF once before although I really like my first sentence for this one).

Since my last two efforts at this prognostication business seem to have jinxed those saddled with my choices, I think I should abstain this time.

I do appreciate the confidence in me expressed above, though I should in fairness point out that this quarter's story is not the sort of thing I normally write. That may or may not be a good thing. One way or the other I suspect it may break my run of HM / SHM.

Which means you might write the story that sends you to the head of the class. I'm sure Dave is keen on finding any new thought or process. Be original, stretch the boundaries of your imagination, write on.

Meh. I think my 3rd quarter story had too much backstory in it, too many pot holes, probably from reading too much Stephen King, particularly The Stand. Reading Erle Stanley Gardner seems to be tightening up my writing. My latest story was way better than my 3rd quarter entry, but it just went to IGMS, which, if rejected, will probably be revised for WOTF next quarter.

Best of luck, all!

I predict Laurie G, a fellow Donald Maass fan, will make it into V33.
