Yay! I've finally submitted! And it wasn't at 11:59.99 PM, either.

It's actually looking alright! I've received a majority of the submissions from within the fandom so far, but I've also had some from outsiders.  I think we're going to have a nice combination of furry and literary texts Smiley

Sweet, sweet! Large submission pools are always nice. We were talking about New Fables on another board -- they received so few submissions this year that they had to skip publication and hold off 'till 2012.

Oh, don't start nailbiting just yet. It'll probably take a bit of time to read over the submissions. You'll run out of nails Tongue

Looking over Malin's post, I get the feeling that they didn't receive very few submissions this year so much as very few publishable ones. Which is a different matter entirely.

Hopefully Allasso's maiden run fared better - and from the sound of it, it did. Grats in advance, Alex, and looking forward to reading your first issue. Smiley (So sorry I wasn't able to send something in, by the way. I'm a slow writer, and my plate happened to be full.)

Dude, that's how life happens! Sometimes things are busy, so hopefully you make the next deadline Smiley

I actually have received quite a few that I consider publishable! I don't have the largest pool, but the quality actually surprised me.  There was only one person who submitted that made me say, "Uhh... No" right away; that was the first submission I got, and I thought, "Gah... This is gonna be a rough ride." Luckily, I was wrong Cheesy

Good luck to everyone! The next week or so, I'll decide on what will be published.

*snickers* Telling a writer not to be nervous while his work is being inspected is like asking the sky to be blue. Writers are little neurotic nutjobs by default.

Best tip I ever got: Just forget you ever submitted work. It's just like auditions -- best not to think about it.

Indeed. Let me take you back for a moment to some 20 years ago, when it was possible to submit a story (on paper, typewritten or at best printed by a word processor) and look in the mailbox every day for half a year before getting a rejection letter. Or, if you were fortunate, an acceptance and a publication agreement to sign that promised "payment upon publication" of perhaps $50 or even $100. Then you could look in the mailbox every day for another two years before a copy of the publication with your story finally appeared. And then, a couple of months more before the check arrived.

Obviously, you couldn't sit around biting your nails. You had to just leave a note somewhere that story X was sent off to editor Z on date Y. And then forget about it and start writing the next one.  Cheesy
