Congratulations, @rschibler and @doctorjest!! I'm thrilled for you two. How long does it usually take for finalists to be judged? I'd imagine the twitching has only gotten worse. giggle  

Thanks! grinning And geez, you're not kidding about the twitching--it's done a total number on my ability to concentrate on anything useful!

hm I've been lurking here since I submitted my very first short story in Q1, and I am thrilled with the result.  Congrats to everyone who scored a certificate, especially our finalists.  The sheer numbers involved in reaching that level are mind-boggling.

Humbug - another HM for me. I'm pretty well stuck at that level. But then this entry was humorous which i tend to think is a bigger risk.

Congrats to everyone who got anywhere - and keep trying to all those who got 'R's.

Sorry, Tim. Editors always ask for humor, but buy so little of it. One man's funny bone is another man's chicken bone in his craw. Keep swinging. I tried all kinds of genres and story types until I dabbled in YA and it won. You never know what will connect with Dave, and then it has to connect with the other judges as well.

I thought I'd read that Dave was looking for more Sword and Saucy, and there's only so many codpiece story lines you can write.

I've also been quiet, as I wasn't sure if we were doing the wait-until after thing (I feel sure we did that once upon a time?), but:

finalist

And I'm super stoked! I struggled balancing life, work, and writing over the last few years, and the Writers of the Future and the community here has been the one anchor that's helped me to keep on trucking through it all. Totally stoked that we have a couple of Forumites in the mix for another quarter--fingers crossed for us both!

AAAH! That's so exciting! Congratulations!!

 

I asked Joni if I could post and she said just to keep the story title/content quiet since it's still being judged, but that I was good to say I was a finalist. GO FORUMITES!

 

Well done Becky and DrJ - really pleased for you both,

Congratulations to the finalists! And to all those who’ve had their efforts recognized. 
You know what, congrats to those that are absorbing Rs as well. I’m jealous you’ve had your existence acknowledged and get to move on. I still haven’t heard and have moved from anger to bargaining and am nearing acceptance.

I tried not to be a complete grouch all weekend but ended up kicking the dirt a lot like the only kid in line not to get an ice cream cone.

I’ve been entering this contest for 4 years now...3 rejections...6 honorable mentions... 2 silvers... 1 semi finalist... and now 4 finalists. Four. FOUR!!! I can hardly believe it. I’m incredibly happy and also sick with anxiety as this ride gives me whiplash. Hoping for a short wait. Thursday? Friday? What am I thinking. Everyday is Thursday! I may puke lol.

Congratulations Becky, DoctorJest, and Valiant! May we ride this roller coaster all the way to HoLlYwOoD!

I know it's hard, but give it some time. If finalists announce their results (as in, whether they placed or not) and you still haven't heard, that's a good time to e-mail Joni.

Wonderful. Gag orders are off, they've all announced now. I've been waiting. Where's my EVIL GRIN Smiley? This will have to do:

BRILLIANT WORK, WRITERS OF THE FUTURE FORUM!!!! FOUR, COUNT THEM, FOUR FINALISTS! 

LIGHT UP THE MARQUEE!

1. REBECCA TREASURE! (AKA RE Treasure)

2. ROBERT LUKE WILKINS! (AKA DoctorJest)

3. THOMAS TAPPER (AKA Valiant)

4. BRITTANY PERRY RAINSDON! (AKA thegirlintheglasses)

This is a first in the history of this Contest. NEVER has the Forum produced four Finalists before. I've never heard of it. What an excellent way to kick off our BRAND NEW WRITERS AND ILLUSTRATORS OF THE FUTURE FORUM!!!

As the Writers of the Future representative in here, I congratulate each and every one of you. It is an amazing achievement. Miraculous, even. Out of the thousands entering this quarter, in the biggest talent search for new writers from around the world, your writing placed in the Top 8. You reached the pinnacle of the honor tiers in this Contest, and have proven that your writing is worthy of appearing in L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Vol. 38 bestselling anthology. Be proud of this stellar achievement! It's true. NYT bestselling author and coordinating judge David Farland judged your writing to be of the professional caliber necessary to win this contest and receive a publishing contract. Any one of your stories would indeed be worthy of being published in those illustrious anthology pages!

Alas, only three can be chosen from each quarter, or else the anthology would be a TOME. But rest assured, each of you have achieved the highest honor you can accomplish on your own in this world-renowned Contest. 

I wish each of you the best of success in the final round of judging. I know what it's like to wait for results, but I don't believe your wait will be long. And whether you are chosen to be in the anthology with all its respective rewards or not, rest assured, YOU ARE EACH WINNERS!

In behalf of the Contest, you have our sincerest commendations and CONGRATULATIONS!

@wulfmoon Thanks Wulf! I'll see about sending it to an editor. It's already at BCS, though they give personal rejections.

And (@henckel) congratulations! Hitting so close to the bullseye twice in a row is amazing. It's only a matter of time...

Also, question: Is it taboo to talk about finalists? Anyone know when the judging will be finished?

 

Reuben, you can't talk about Finalists right now because a judge could figure out the author of the work--they do come by here. We just had Tim Powers visit for an AMA, and he could be reading their stories right now. It normally takes two weeks, although little birdies tell me this one will be fast, they are pushing for results by the end of the month. 

Patience is a virtue, and good things come to those who wait. Fortunately, they made a sign for just such moments as this:

waiting

All the beast!

silverhm This was everything I was hoping for! (Okay, maybe I wanted a semifinalist. I can't fool you guys.) Thank you everyone here! In specific, thank you Wulf for the Heart's Desire tip, and the other supersecrets, thank you Dustin for all your time and advice, especially that bit from KD Julicher (thank you Kate!) about tough decisions, and Matt Dovey's link on conflict (which is here). Thank you Troy (Shockhawk) and all my other critiquers. And thank you Becky, who has probably done more for my writing than anyone/anything else. 

Speaking of which, I count at least two regulars who haven't reported yet *cough cough cough*. May the best forumite win! popcorn  

Hey Reuben,

Very excited to see this! The work you put in is evident, and I said this in an e-mail (or PM) but I've definitely seen an improvement in your writing from that first 450 you sent me a while back.

I think V.38 is going to rock. We have two more chances to write something awesome and get in there!

Thank you babooher, for the kind words. My first submissions to any market were in April of 2020. WotF V37 Q2 and the NIWA Anthology. I've collected 10 rejections since then.
