Just spitballing here, but if it takes more than a quarter to judge the contest, won't that eventually lead to necessitating the elimination of a quarter? I'm not saying it will take longer than a quarter, or whining about the time, I'm just testing an observation.

2012 Q4: R
2016 Q3: SHM
2019 Q2: HM, Q3: HM
2020 Q2: HM, Q4: SHM
2021 Q1: HM, Q2: SF, Q3: Waiting, Q4: WIP

How long it takes depends on the time of year and what other obligations the judges have.

Last Q4 was like five minutes, so he/they seem to make up for any shortfall by cranking Q4.
Q1 has extra time because there are 3 more quarters behind it. And it's usually delayed by the workshop.
This year is a wildcard.
Every year is a wildcard.

Joni mentioned something about sending digitals out for the last quarter, but I haven't heard back from her in like a week. Has anyone gotten an email from her with a scan of their HM/SHM/Etc?

Should we be expecting results for this quarter? It feels like ages since I submitted for it. I just submitted for the next quarter yesterday.

Rejections: 1
HMs: 2
SHM: 1

Q1 results typically come out in April. This year is unusual, but who knows. Could be tomorrow, could be six weeks from now. No way to know.

Aaaah yes, the cruelest month!

Just did a real rough outline for my Q3. I might be able to finish a draft before Q2 is over. Without something to work on, I'd fixate on waiting for results and be a wreck. If I'm speeding along on the next thing, I don't have enough time to linger looking in the rear view mirror.

I'm betting tonight is the night. Results incoming--but don't hold me to it.  shrug figured we needed more suspense, why not?

Hahaha Dragonchef.

I meant that it's coming soon to 4th & Starlight, but I can see how that could be interpreted either way!

I tweaked my sig to make it more clear.

But we should all write "Finalist coming soon", right?  shades

Indeed, it's the 4th!

My finalist 1 link goes to the first in the set. 1, 2, and 3 are out.
Liz (Disgruntled Peony) is editing 4th. I'm pretty sure there will be a Kickstarter. 3rd had one and it was funded, so that's good.
I should have done one with mine... (2nd).

Congratulations on getting your first entry in! Whatever results you get, you should definitely be proud you made that first step. (I got an R my first time out, but a SF on my second quarter--and some people win their first or second quarter in, so you never know.)

Fingers crossed for April! (No guarantees, but that is when results tend to come out in the spring.)
