Okay, no more twitching. Thanks for the update, Wulf.
And for the advice. Staying indoors is the best thing to do, indeed. Let's prove that humankind is smarter than the virus.

The current pandemic has caused problems across the board, slowing everything down. So go back to getting your Q2 in and figure out what you will write for Q3. Best use of your mental energies.

Stay safe, all! Stay indoors if you can. It's where writers do their best work! :)

I'm a first time submitter for Q2 volume 37, so my perspective is ZERO. But if it has been this delayed in Q1 should we anticipate a similar delay in Q2, Q3 and so on? Just curious.

Also, for perspective, when would results normally be posted? thanks again!

I can't give a whole lot of insight on whether this will delay Q2 and Q3, but I'd say that if the workshop doesn't get postponed again, they'll have to get caught up at some point or they'll really be scrambling to get v37 edited and printed (if the other quarters put them behind for Q4).

As to when results are normally posted, it's always a bit of a mystery! Kary and Dave are kind enough to drop hints on their social media every now and then, but the exact dates depend on their personal lives and time commitments. People will twitch here, but ultimately, the result drop dates are pretty random on the micro level. The dates on the quarterly results section of the forum can be a good general indicator of what month to start expecting them, though. :)

No twitching for me.
My son won’t ride my m/bike on the roads and refuses to ride my race bike. So we had to do the canal tow paths – they’re not ideal for a race bike. And yep, I hit something, somersaulted and landed on my shoulder.
With 2 cracks in my left clavicle – twitching hurts.

(Chocolate Decadence urgently needed here.)
Some HMs More Rs - I keep thinking I'm getting closer, but perhaps not.

I'm not twitching. I'm winking ...albeit in a not flirtatious way.

I hold no hope for my Q1 story. Q2 will be much better.

According to an e-mail Joni sent to HM recipients from last quarter, she will send out Q1 results on Tuesday. Best of luck, everyone! May the odds--and the twitching--be ever in your favor.
