Doesn’t look like it’s going to be today.

*whispers* I've gotten e-mail notifications at 3am EST before.

*whispers* my email notification came in at 11:46pm EST last quarter.

ACK!!!
*faints dead away*
*phone rings*
I'm not dead. I'm right here. I've got it.
Yes? Joni?
*angrily hangs up on telemarketer number 352*

The real question: does Joni call finalists on the weekend?

Yes, she definitely does. I've had calls Saturday afternoons, Friday night at 8 o'clock, almost any time. She does check your time zone so I don't think she'd call you at 2 am!

Aside from my medical condition, I'm not twitching at all and feel like I'm missing out.

Not sure 'missing out' is the right phrase. Twitching is stressful. wotf019

Sometimes I'm excited by the anticipation. I have experienced twitching in previous quarters. Though the worst was when I got a notification from another pro-market that my story was under consideration... just as I was about to head into the wilderness for over a week! For 5 days, I didn't see another person at all, but I was able to get a 4G signal on a couple of nights. The market didn't get back to me for a month in the end, so the twitching was unnecessary. It was stressful as I had no means to edit my story if they accepted and needed a quick turnaround.

I also am not twitchy at all this quarter. Despite my entry being one that got held for consideration by Diabolical Plots I don't actually expect it to win here (may not have a strong enough speculative element for this contest). But who knows what will talk to the hearts of the readers :). What I probably need to do it get back to submitting some stuff so I can re-excite my twitch nerves!

Just got my R. First non HM for me so far. But at heart I knew it wasn't right for this contest (see my previous post) so it isn't surprising.

Wonderful news, Liz. It was only a matter of time--I've seen your writing. Now, the hard part truly begins as you wait for the next call. May Joni bring you good news soon!

Fortune favor the brave...and the industrious!
