Good thing I have cookies. Now I can eat them all and drown my sorrows. Honorable Mention is the second loser.

Good luck to all who made it, and I'll see you next year!

Didn't make the list at all, which sucks, but I might actually get some work done over spring break.

Congrats to those who did make it through, and congrats on your HM Lisa!

I wish there weren't so many stories not posted. Looking through the list, there are stories missing that I just can't believe didn't go through!

I got through but I feel a bit guilty because I've been a sh*tty reviewer despite some folks giving me feedback. It's my first time and I felt overwhelmed. But my goal is not just to write a good 2nd rounder, but be a better contributor here. Best of luck, all.

Self-fulfilling prophecy.  "The Art of Rejection."  My self-help guru is dancing with glee.  Maybe he'll give me a job writing short stories.  Ha.

Honorable mention.  Nice to be recognized but not enough to keep going.  I'm super disappointed.

Congratulations to everyone who is advancing.  I saw some well-deserved winners on that list.

Now I really need you to send some cookies my way.  I need to do some sorrow drowning, too (same boat here).

Third in my heat! I may need to change my weekend plans a bit to suit this news...

Congrats and good luck to everyone who got in and condolences to those who missed out, skimming the lists it looks like a bunch I read on the forums and enjoyed weren't listed - it's all subjective! 

Like Dogmafrog I feel a bit bad that I faded early on providing feedback on the forums - going to try really hard to rectify that this round.

4th place isn't terribly exciting,  but I do enjoy writing these stories, once the agony of pulling an idea out of the prompts yields to an idea. Glad I get to play another round.

Congrats on the honorable mention. I thought your story was hilarious. That self-help guru was a riot act!!

Well, boo, I'm out too. But I read a lot of the stories on the list, and one of my personal favourites GoodFences.com got through - first in its heat. So congratulations to the winners, thumbs up to the honourable mentions and hugs for those not mentioned. 

I find myself feeling pretty much nothing, so I suppose my natural pessimism helps in these situations.
