@rschibler I’d love to see Q3 sped up, but that would mean the end of summer and going back to the office.

Sometimes early July for results would be nice. (Fingers crossed for you btw Disgruntled Peony  :))

I'll be very interested to see how my Q2 went. While it may still contain a few amateur errors, there were one or two MAJOR errors that I fixed since previous subs. We'll see.

To ease your pain . . .

You can stop twitching for the moment. I know where they're at in the process for Q2. It's going to be a couple more weeks. Start twitching somewhere around July 4th through the 10th. May fireworks go off for you then!

In the meantime, don't you have a Q3 entry to submit by midnight, June 30th? Razz  

Stay thirsty, my friends!

Thank you, Wulf Moon! I'll be focusing on honing my possible Q4 entries while also making progress with my novel. We can sit on the edge of our seats in a couple weeks.

I received a SHM for this quarter. But that’s still great, given how competitive the competition has gotten recently. Fingers crossed for everyone!

HM here! Phew!

Consistency is key, Candice. You've proven you have good technical mastery when you hit HM and above more than once. From there, you just need your great idea Dave has never seen before. Or better yet, that tear-jerker that makes him wipe his eyes and say, "How in the world did she do that to me?" Next time!

@craydimensional thank you! Hang in there. I've been taking Dave's 318 class since January and I really think it helped me. Let me know if you would ever like to do a critique exchange. I definitely struggle with getting other writer's eyes on my work before I submit, but I know it would benefit my writing in big ways.

You've hit that upper tier a couple of times now, NV. And you just sold to Deep Magic. I'd say you're very close to winning this contest! Keep swinging!

It does suck, but we all start somewhere, Cray. Usually from the bottom, and work our way up. The more we learn, the more we practice, the better we get. Stay the course. There's a good reward for your hard work. All the beast!

@nvhaskell I will probably take you up on that for Q4, but I’m not ready yet. Got a lot crits for Q3. I am hoping that one breaks through to HM at least.

@wulfmoon Thank you for the encouragement! There are so many good writers here and, like @RETreasure said, the competition is steep. I am optimistic about my Q3 submission and just started my Q4 editing so crossing my fingers and doing the work in the meantime.

@wulfmoon I’m not that upset. During Q3 I found Super Secrets, WoTF Forum, got a lot of advice from other WoTF present and alumni. After that, I knew I made critical mistakes on Q2. But mistakes are things to learn from.
