@wirelesslibrarian: I need your name to post by your moniker on the first post of this quarter in the list of our woo-hoos. [Smile]

Congratulations, you two. This quarter was thin for our group, but you kept our heads high.

Two things:

Congrats wireless. Good Going, especially this quarter.


And Rats I must have deleted my story Q4, I was going to send it out and I can't find it. I did some "housecleaning" but I was being careful. UGH. And I must have done a great job on it I can't even remember the title. Not right now anyway.

I still had your Q4 entry in my crit file. I just sent it to you. Won't be your final edited version, but at least it's not lost.

The title was "Helping Out".

Thank you Meredith I appreciate that.


However I found it. After I got off line and went off to do something else, I recalled my back up flashdrive---duh. I still ha dto hunt for it. That flashdrive sometimes puts things in strange places, instead of at the end. I swear there aren't any empty spaces but it still manages to find one. Close to the end of a section of pictures of my wife's crafts. I had to go through the list three times to find it.

Since it has a header I assume it's the copy I sent to WotF.


Thanks again though, before I remembered that I was hoping someone might still have it. I still can't believe I deleted it. I deleted the crits I received since I had already used them and some how I must have captured the WotF copy. I thought I was being very careful too.

This group is awfully quiet. Is anyone still waiting for a response? (BTW, someone on the WotF forum is hinting strongly that the finalists have been notified.)

I'm on both boards, but I'm still waiting for a response. I got the initial one that said they had my submission.

I hope they haven't notified the winners since I'm still waiting!

Hey, got my HM certificate today. Is it too nerdy of me to want it framed and hung in my office?

For all you who still haven't heard from Joni, I'm playing the following on a back channel in my head. Finalist! Finalist! Finalist!

Did you already know that you received an HM, or were you just notified today? Just trying to figure out if they are still handing them out or if maybe they moved onto semi's and finalists... All speculation at this point, I know.

Well, I'm planning to frame mine and hang it over my computer desk to encourage me. I got mine on Friday.

Just got the word. I made semi-finalist for this quarter. Time to finish up Q1. Good luck to those who are still waiting.

Anyone who hasn't heard anything at this point can probably count their entry as a rejection because the HMs, semis and apparently the finalists have all been notified. (Although I might be dead wrong on the finalists because the official announcement hasn't happened yet).

Good job everyone! Even if you got a straight reject like me, the important thing is to keep submitting. [Smile]

And I don't think it's nerdy to frame the HMs. I have my 3 HMs and 1 SHM on my writing wall to remind myself to keep working.

Hi,

I'll double what Thomas said. Quarter four seems to have been a particularly brutal quarter, but the only way to win is to keep submitting. And if keeps you motivated, I'd frame your certificates. Trina (Genevive on the forum I think) is a professional framer and I know she's chimed in before about what type of backing, etc. to use for your certificates if you want to make sure they last.

Nick

Still no announcement of the finalists. I believe they've known for at least two weeks now. I wonder why the hold up.

Contact me if you want info on framing your certificates. Don't use the glass and cardboard that come with pre-made frames, they'll ruin your certificate over time.

I know of Scott Barnes. He's the editor of NewMyths. He just gave me a personalized rejection of a WotF rejected story. Said it was really, really close.
