I just finally emotionally rebounded from my Q2 R, gonna start working on a Q4 entry today. Happy writing to everyone.

I'm glad you've rebounded. Sometimes it hits hard. Good Luck on Q4.

Well the story I was thinking of submitting for Q4 has just been accepted for publication in a time travel anthology. Obviously I’m pleased, but I’m now wondering if I should have submitted it to WotF instead!

No point in wondering that (although I've done the same thing myself in the past, I will admit). What works for one market doesn't necessarily work for others. Half the stories I've sold are edits of stories that got an R or an HM at WotF. The only thing you know for sure and certain is--you sold a story! And that's awesome! wotf010 wotf010 wotf010 wotf010 wotf010

Congratulations Woodstock. Remember the one about the bird in the hand, is worth two in the bush. Enjoy the success of a sale. You've earned it.

My Q4 entry entered my realm of awareness today. The story resides in my thoughts waiting to be shared with the known world. It has a character, with a problem, in context that is rather extreme. I just have to find my MC's heart's desire and it will be easy-peasy from there on.

Thanks everyone. I’m just thinking maybe it was my best chance to get anywhere with WotF. But of course I’m excited to be in the time travel anthology!

Congrats on getting through the 1st draft. Although two have already offered, I'd be more than willing to give it a look, too.
