You only have to worry about your story rising above four hundred. Those four hundred or so happen to be very good.

So, is that like 400 or so reach the level of HM and above? Finalist?

 

Part of me feels like it doesn't matter, that a good story is a good story regardless of a single contest or market.

But another part of me wants to compare. Which beast do we feed?

Congrats to all FOUR finalists! Hoping you all get calls soon - three winners, one held as possible published finalist. There.  It's in the universe now.

hm  

Onward to the next quarter!

Congratulations on your HM, Pat! Are you new to the Forum? If so, WELCOME ABOARD!

And you're right. That's the perfect play this quarter. As Picard said to the universe,  "Make it so."

 

Pat is a wireless librarian, veteran of the Hatrack wars prior to its extinction.

 

@axeminister speaks the truth.

I do feel like I'm a new member here, even though this is my third incarnation at the forum. Entered a few times several years ago, faded away, and rejoined just before the platform changed. It insisted I didn't exist after the update, so I started over. Glad to be here, and thank you for the welcome, Wulf! Your amazing writing advice and words of encouragement are primarily why I'm back. Thank you!

But another part of me wants to compare. Which beast do we feed?

I don't recommend feeding the comparisons beast, personally, because that route can lead to jealousy and bitterness. I'm a big fan of cheering other people on and helping when I can, because I learn from helping at least as much as by being helped. I've developed a lot of friendships this way, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Some of them may win this contest before I do--and that's okay! I may never win, because I'm in an eternal race with myself to win or pro out. laughing That's just how I play the game, though.

Also, an important note: There are tons of good, even great, stories that still get rejections from markets simply because it's not what those markets are looking for at that particular point in time. Maybe they have a specific niche they need to fill and the story in question isn't the right shape; maybe they recentlh accepted or published something like it recently. This is why I'm stubborn about sending my stories everywhere I can for as long as I feel they're worth sending out. You never know when your story is the one to fill that niche. grinning

The first part of your feels is more sane. However, as you know, Bob, one must always quantify "good" with "market desire". WotF is looking for original, more than other markets that tell you exactly what they want.

My recent SF critique said this specifically. It didn't bring enough "new" to the table.

Sanity is in the eye of the potato. shades

 

In all seriousness, the numerical comparisons are only superficially useful but interesting nonetheless. I do compare stories in the WotF books with my own work. I look to see what did they better than I'm doing (and how did they do it) and see if there are things I'm doing as well or better than them (at least in my own estimation).

You decide. 

But a humble aspiring writer does well to consider the fact that Kary English, first reader of this Contest and a First Place Winner, does have a good eye for spotting well-crafted fiction. It's why Author Services and David Farland chose her. And the coordinating judge who chooses the top 400 or so that get the honors each quarter for their writing? David Farland is not only an NYT bestselling author, he is an editing guru that has helped many writers become NYT bestsellers themselves. On top of that, the final judges that pick the winners are some of the biggest names in the publishing industry with decades of writing and publishing experience to their names. Doesn't mean the judges are always right. They all have their personal opinions and biases. You could have written a wonderful bestselling story that would have won the Pulitzer had it been published, and these industry giants were just too blind to see it.

But I'd ask myself, what are the chances of that? Considering my lack of experience compared to someone like David Farland, Kevin J. Anderson, Larry Niven, Tim Powers, and more, I'd at least go back and take a look at my story that didn't place. I might even go get someone with a lot more experience than myself to take a look at it to figure out if something I was doing in my writing needed improvement. 

That is by far the more likely answer. And the sooner an aspiring writer acknowledges that, the sooner they can start making those changes that will help their writing rise higher in the trained eyes of professional editors and judges. The sooner they will begin their career as published writers.

This is exactly right, as far as it goes. But there's no guarantee (unless you get a personal rejection) that your story ever made it out of a market's slush pile. It's one reason I'll keep submitting to WotF until I win, pro-out or stop writing. It's free and every story gets read.

First time submitting, received an HM!

I'm new to short fiction and the submissions process is pretty confusing--am I able to keep submitting this story to other magazines since it wasn't chosen to print?

I don't know if someone else already responded to this effect, but it's also worth noting that the Writers of the Future contest doesn't prohibit you from revising and resubmitting a story that previously placed a Silver HM or lower. I didn't realise this when I first joined the contest, and ended up selling (oh, boo-hoo, I know) my first SHM, which I may well have liked to revise and resubmit. By all means submit it elsewhere--but also know that if you find you've made improvements to this version of it, the contest doesn't exclude it from being submitted for another go around.

With that said, as a rule, I agree with @WulfMoon on this point--it's better to write new stories, and submit those, if you can manage it. However, I've also had times when for one reason or another, I either wasn't happy with what I'd managed to do, was running out of time, or was dealing with stresses that were otherwise interfering with me--and in those circumstances, it's good to have either flash fiction stories that you can expand out, or prior R/HM/SHM entries that you can perhaps polish and improve and resubmit.

No matter the outcome, it's always better to be entered into a quarter than not entered.

I started writing in January 2017. The first community of writers I found was this forum, and I’ll never stop being grateful for that little piece of serendipity. I’ve made lifelong friends, found mentorship and support, and grown as a writer and a human being because of the people I met right here. 

Writing is a weird journey. It’s intensely personal, yet public. It’s largely subjective, but based in precedent and skill and study. It’s just putting words down, but it’s also incredibly hard. Some days you’re sure you can’t and some days you’re sure you will. 

Well, today is one of those latter days for me because after four years, 700k words, and more tears than I’d like to admit, I get to post this sign:

finalist

I could not, would not, have made this journey alone. To everyone who supported me and believed in me, especially when I didn’t believe in myself, thank you. All I ever wanted was a finalist - that was in my control. What happens with the judges and the results is not - but by God, I did it!

Congratulations!!

So, I'm working on a story for Q3. Really enjoying reading the posts/advice from everyone. Here's the thing that driving me nuts the past few days... I submitted a story for Q1 this year (first time in the WOTF contest), and got an email about it being Honorable Mention. That was encouraging. However, I didn't make a note at the time, of which story I submitted (of a few, all written about the same time last year). So, I don't have any idea what the HM is for. Note to self--clerical skills need improvement. GOOD LUCK to all finalists.

Oh man, that's a pain! However, unless I followed this incorrectly, I believe they're sending out certificates by default to all entrants now unless they request not to receive one--so while they used to ask for the information to put on the certificate, I believe they'll now be pulling the information from your entry to put onto it (I can't swear to that for certain, but that was implied in a more recent email). So if that's true, then when you get that certificate, it should have the name of the story on it--and then you can find out which one it was.

Fingers crossed! grinning  

(Addendum: unless they changed that, of course...but that's what was implied for my Q4 HM last year.)

Hello J. D.

Congratulations on your HM!

Sounds like you're almost as bad at record keeping as I am.

In case you didn't know it, there are websites that are useful for searching markets to submit to and keeping track of said submissions. So you know who you've submitted to and how long they've had it. Duotrope and Submission Grinder for instance.

Forum members can share their published works in any form, pay to view or free, Dustin. We enjoy hearing about any member's success in getting published. We also enjoy reading their works, seeing their art, listening to their music, and any other creative endeavors they are involved in that they wish to share. And yes, we love following the careers and achievements of WotF winners and participants. But the appropriate folder is best, of course. Where I draw the line on our TOS is when it's an obvious commercial site and has nothing to do with the author, nor our stated goals. That's an immediate deletion of post and permanent ban. 

Party on, dudes! Smile

I've just started editing my entry. I submitted early and so it was at wotf for 6 months.

Looking at it fresh after all this time, I'd have rejected it too. I found some really stupid typos. 

I've read Ken Rand's 10% solution since I wrote this and my inner editor went red with embarrassment for letting it out the door. It will be a lot better when it gets submitted again.

Well, we shall see! For the time being, I've left it in the running for published finalists, in case it fits what they need by the end of the year. And in the meantime, I need to get my mind back into the groove of trying to get a solid Q3 entry ready to go...
