You've just made me realize that I didn't actually get an auto-confirmation when I uploaded this time. Confused

I did email it in as back-up, just in case. Is this something I should be worried about?


We're writers. We worry about everything...

But I'd just send a note to feedback@ and let them know that you are nervous you didn't get a response, AND attach your final version which you attempted to send.

To Stephen: Sorry if I sounded grumpy. I'm so tired and braindead. I hope we all get some good rest now!

To Imaginative Insanity: Oh, wow. I love your name. Why don't you go into the submissions page and make sure your story is there? If it is, it's probably OK. What's the site? Submittable, or something?

Thanks! I forgot I could do that! I logged in and it's marked as received. :) As for my name, thanks! I don't even remember how I came up with it, but it's been my go-to username for all writing things for 5 years or so. Big smile

@Stephen: Thanks for your advice as well. We do tend to worry about everything, don't we?

Your submittable account may be attached to a different email account. Your confirmation will go to whatever is on file in submittable, not the address you used to sign up for the contest thru NYC Midnight.

Nah, not at all.

Writing is stressful. But that's what creativity means -- we have to pull something out of our soul and put it on display, and even though something is made, something is also never the same.

That takes a lot out of us!

Honorable Mention #2 ... 7th place ... and I'd rather get nothing ... or have a repecharge round for another chance ... HM is fu-cking useless!   And the feedback was crap, too ...

You should write it! Get it out there. :) 

Yep! Totally agree!

Ghost Story (beer me strength) / Graphic Designer / Homework Assignment

I can't remember...in SSC how integral is the character assignment?

Since 2-5 didn't post in round one, I may be the only story in the heat on the boards. No pressure.

Best of luck, beautiful souls!


You aren't alone, heat mate :)
