Semifinalist is a HUGE honor, Hannah. It means you made Dave sweat it out, you were in his final pile. Take cues off that critique, and not just for that story. Dave is trying to help you aim just a bit better in your writing so that you can hit the bullseye.

Congratulations!

I am sure that... they.... appreciate your well wishes, agree with the sentiment, and all of ... them .... who are lurking are wishing they could talk about the experience.

Congratulations on your semifinalist placement, Hannah! To get into Dave's final stack, you wrote an original idea, and executed it well. The critique kills resubmit, of course, but it's still invaluable in getting some insight into what Dave likes about your work, and what he finds lacking in this piece. That knowledge can be put to very good use in your next work. Not to be overlooked is the opportunity to create a fresh story in the same world, wrapped around similar concepts, but explored through a different character or different method. You already know you nicked the bullseye with the one you sent.

All the beast,

Wulf Moon

Well done to that HM to SF story - and thanks for sharing (gives folks like me hope)

And nice job on the finalist - and someone noted that is two in a row?? That must feel downright fantastic!

Kudos to both of you.

I'll congratulate you here as well, Brittany. CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING A FINALIST. Two in a row even! Consistent high marks like that means you are writing at pro level, well done! Be sure to send those stories out to other markets and keep writing fresh stories! It's where we grow.

So dang cool, Brittany! Congrats!
And there are still several quarters left for you to take it the next step up, or better yet: A complete jump to 1st place. Couldn't have happened to a better person . . . unless, of course, it was me. But I have a long way to go before I get there--according to my critiquers. So back to my original statement . . . You. Are. Da. Bomb. Baby!

CONGRATS on the Finalist! wotf010
Although, I was SURE you and Brittany were winning this quarter.
I will be careful and keep my glee in check next quarter so that I don't throw any unintended bad mojo on you. Then you two will DEFINITELY WIN!

Oops, I pre-glee-ed again.
Note to self: Keep it in check until after they announce.

KD! You too? Wow! And to think I knew you when. Well, just prior to your "win" (yes, as far as I am concerned, you won) that is.
Congrats, mon ami! Three more quarters to take it further . . . sweet. Go get 'em.

KD thank you. You are a legend...and now hold a record I know you'd rather have tied (Most times finalist without a win). But it sounds like you've got a few more stories to throw in the ring. Fingers crossed for Q2. And Q3! You've got this!!!!

I have now passed Scott Parkin as the most-losing finalist ever. He won on his fifth try. That's definitely something! Persevere, everyone, and you'll make it.
