I struggled hard with the genre I was given and didn't even have any words on the page until about 3 hours before the deadline, so I'll take an HM. Of course I'd like to have moved on in the competition, but given how hard I struggled to even write the story, an HM is pretty awesome.

Cheers! Can't complain. 

When I'm hunched over my keyboard this weekend, I'll be sipping champagne instead of my speedwriting special: coffee and anxiety cocktail.

Meh. It's almost worse than just not placing. A bit like those rejection letters with 'This made it pretty far and we really like it but good luck we're sure there's a market...' Yeah, cute,  but 'we liked it' doesn't pay the gas bills. 

Stop. Channeling. Me. 

I HATE HMs. So close but, NOPE. Suck it. 

#We'llPayYouInExposure

Um. No.

Been there done that. Although in my experience every "oh hell, this close" NYCm HM story has ended up in a cash money litmag purchase for me.

I refuse to pay the gas bill with it and dump it in my vacatiob find....
