Good luck everyone! I wasn't nervous before, but now I am. I'm not sure what to think. It's kind of funny, when I submitted my story for Q1, I was super proud, but now I keep turning it over in my head, thinking of things I could have done better, to the point where I foresee a rejection...

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.

Not to be pessimistic, but I think those timeframes were set before Covid-19 drop-kicked and hogtied the population. wotf017

Made a slight error in reading the email, myself. Not enough coffee. Let the twitching commence . . .

What a sweet dragon pup!
It is definitely a good luck sidekick--if a little nervous.

Things are getting exciting!

Betting someone misinterpreted Joni's e-mail and logged it as an R on the Grinder. It happens every so often.

Hey ChuckT - Where would I find said Rejection in Submission Grinder? I don't see anything for Wotf (could be my tired eyes playing tricks on me again).

I saw the rejection on there before and it's gone now. Disgruntledpeony's probably right--someone probably misinterpreted the email and later realized they had made a mistake. When I first glanced at the subject line, I thought it was saying I had gotten an HM.

With the info Joni released I believe it's safe to assume the ones that received phone calls are reading the forum responses and chuckling.
I for one haven't received any call so I don't have to worry about that. I do hope for something I can hang on the wall of the office.
Good luck to all and to all good fortune. wotf007

Me, too. Ah well. I still feel good about the Q2 entry even though I found a mistake after submission! LOL

Don't count yourself out! When I got my finalist call last year it was after the first wave of rejections.

Maybe projected results are Tuesday, because Joni is spending the weekend calling finalists. Pure speculation, by the way. I have no insider info.

I felt the same way as you did! But I think that’s a good feeling—it means you are improving. You are better than you were before.

Well that got the twitch-o-meter pinging again, thanks for the info on that possibility.
