After many, many, MANY hours of revision, my first ever submission to Writers of the Future sold to Metaphorosis. It's titled "Shards." This is my first story sale *ever* after, um, five years of straight rejections.

That's way awesome. Feels good doesn't it? Big Congrats.

I love that title: Ambrose Starkisser Encounters That Which is Locked for the story in UFO.

I read your story in Metaphorosis. Love the cat Despond! Great world building! Thanks for the link.

Congrats on your pro sales!

And what happened just a couple months after selling this story? I made my first ever PRO sale to Unidentified Funny Objects 8! Ahhh!! I'm so freaking happy! (It's a funny sci-fi humor story titled "Ambrose Starkisser Encounters That Which Is Locked," and it'll be coming out in late September/early October.)

So, yeah. Five years of rejections would have ground me down but for the Honorable Mentions and one Silver Honorable Mention from WotF. I can't overstate what a morale boost they were. Seriously. After that SHM in 2018, I kinda went into overdrive, reading and studying and practicing SFF as much as possible. Thank you WotF!  fistinair

Congrats! Your hard work shows! And to be the basis of the cover art on your first sale? Dang. You're on fire!

I did a exercise on point of view with the Toronto Sci Fi and Fantasy Writers Group, and they are publishing it in the second edition of Speculative North. It's nice to get a sale for a piece I didn't even submit, but the major success for me is writing publishable work (even as an example of a writing exercise) as a first draft. Typically, my first drafts are awful. But this piece took me all of 25 mins.

Good news, everyone! I'm going to have a story published in Fireside Quarterly's Winter 2021 issue! I'm super excited.  grinning

(Apparently I could have announced when the contract was signed, but most of my experience before this was with anthologies that asked me to wait until they officially announced their contents, so I figured better safe than sorry--and then months went by. I finally decided to ask today.  laughing )

Great news indeed, Liz! That’s a nice pro sale! Publication date is a year away, which for you is a good thing—I think you’re close to pro-ing out! Congratulations and keep up the great work!

It's actually in January (although it won't be on their website until May). O_o I've got a couple of sales to go yet, though--I checked with Joni to make sure.

After **19** submissions (perseverance pays!) , I had my Kafkaesque dystopian story "Trial in Majority" podcasted by Simultaneous Times. This is the first time I've had music composed for my writing. My story begins at 12

(text version on my website: https://andydibble.com/2020/11/03/trial-in-majority/ )

The other story in this episode (the one before mine) was written by Cora Buhlert, a Hugo award-nominee. Her story is also worth a listen.

Hello everyone. I never thought I’d be able to post anything on this thread, since I've never had any major achievements in writing. But finally, I've got some good news to share! My 70k novel just got accepted at World Castle Publishing! It’s a small press, however, this is a very big milestone for me Smile
