First Place for Liz Ticknor?

I guess that's kind of ok, well a little.

(Kidding, it's fan-freak'n-tastic!! Way to go!)

But, but, but, will this mean she's no longer disgruntled?

Perhaps a Mildly-Pleased Peony? Or a Reasonably Satisfied Peony?

Who cares! Way to go Liz! You inspire us all.

It feels crazy to use this emoji, but...

I'm still in shock. It doesn't feel real. I'm absolutely giddy, though!

@empressed I have a pretty good idea of how you must feel right now (I've been there twice, myself) but I just wanted to say that I'm super thrilled that you made finalist, and I know that you can do it again. Keep doing the thing! You're awesome. grinning clapper  

@disgruntledpeony

I could not love this post and that emoji any harder at this moment.

Enormous congratulations to you, my friend.

@disgruntledpeony - Oh My Gosh!!! Liz, I am tingling here. Sorry it took me so long to get this in (really bad pinched nerve in neck - can't type very well these days). FIRST PLACE! Wow oh wow. Congratulations! (I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!) I really can't wait to read your story in Volume 38. Here's to hoping you get the Magic Flying Quill Award for Top First Place at the Gala.

@wulfmoon 107 Silver HMs and 290 HMs

Nice! That’s from the final results of Q2, Vol. 38. Thank you for that, Dragonchef.

A thought for all:

The number of Silvers has gone up substantially due to a noted increase in the quality of the work. Many of those and higher are from this group. Many have worked their way up those honor tiers to their winner. The certificates are a notable sign of progress in our writing.

Here’s a concept to help. Recognize that at the top, you are up against the best in the world, many just a sale away from losing their amateur status. And then they win. Ask yourself what kind of work and training they must have done to get that win. Consider the daily or weekly habits they built up to achieve that goal. Then, ask yourself where your habits are in relation, and adjust if necessary. 

To become a champion, you must do the work of a champion. 

Doubt me? Look at the signature lines of those from our forum that finally worked their way up to the win. We have many wonderful examples here of this truth.

Fortune favor the brave ... and those working hard to learn their craft.

This is the way.

Wulf Moon

@pdblake Not yet. Just sitting here staring at the blank space on my wall where it will sit, wondering the same.

My faulty memory says that a conversation about the Q1 certificates noted that they’re taking a bit longer this year because of the increase in volume of HM and SHM winners, but I’d have to dig back to be sure.

Don't have mine yet. But I'm in Australia. Unless it's a digital download, I assume it may take longer.
