Is that the one I critiqued last year? I really liked that one.

Congrats, Alex!

It's not the asteroid mining one, if that's what you're thinking. It's a surreal little story about a young man struggling with girls, God, and the Ferris wheel.

ETA: Yep. I dug back into my email, and it looks like you read it last June. Thanks!

Congrats Michael and Alex!!

In less successful news, DSF sent me a form rejection a few days ago for the story that went into their second round. But I still count the second round-ness a small victory. :)

Awesome! That's definitely a small victory. It's weird . . . I once got "PS An almost for us," and also "This made it to our second round." I wonder what the difference is. I imagine "An almost for us" means something like a "third round," since the story that earned that was significantly better, and more recent, than my second round one. Any ideas?

Hardly-- I don't believe in blowing smoke. You really had a great idea with excellent execution. If I was judging the story based on your personality instead of your writing, I'd say "A little rough around the edges, but honest."
