So, haven’t heard from SQ

September 16th, 2002 · No Comments

So, haven’t heard from SQ yet. Here’s what it said on the “Ask Madam
Pince” page:
September 14, 2002. We received stories form 87 new authors! Is this
an omen?
Unfortunately, the Sugar Quill beta-reading team is ill-equipped to
actually handle 87 submissions in one month. We’ve added three new
beta-readers (welcome Juliane, Arianrhod, and Night Zephyr!), and we
can take fifty new authors this month. We will do whatever we can to
accomodate as many people as possible.
Please stay tuned. We’ll be Sorting tomorrow, and if your story is NOT
Sorted, you will hear fairly soon. If your story IS Sorted, then you
will receive an email from your beta-reader sometime this week.
Thanks everyone, and stay tuned for our October submission date!

So, basically, I have a little better than a 50/50 chance of getting
in. It really all depends on how they Sort. If they simply take the
first 50 stories, then I probably won’t make it, as they were accepting
stories all week and I sent mine in on Friday. If they take 50 random
stories, than my odds are about sixes. But if they actually read them,
and take the ones they liked, then I have a pretty good chance of
getting in. Because my story’s pretty darn good. (I’m not really stuck
up. Promise.)
But now I just have to wait and see what shows up in my inbox. But
whether I get in or no, I’m going to submit to TSTMNBN and Fiction
Alley. I’m just waiting to find out if I made it so I can submit the SQ
beta-ed version to the other sites. If I don’t, I’ll upload as-is.
*sigh* I hate waiting.
