[writing] well, now I'm totally embarrassed (ie, Quit Whining, Yeff!)  
A few days ago I posted on LJ about how my latest WOTF entry came back as a "no place" and that became part of some later LJ whining about feeling discouraged about my writing.

Well, will_couvillier kindly noted that the first batch of WOTF 2009 Q2 results are out and I actually was named an Honorable Mention!

Geez. I'm really embarrassed. I have an excuse, which is that usually a HM cert is included with the story when it's returned.

But still. Enough with the self-pity. I re-vow that there will be No More Whining on this blog. Just hard work, continued self-challenging, increased story submission, and hopefully some good results.

Also, congratulations to dr_phil_physics on his WOTF HM!

Congratulations on the HM. Nice going! (I spotted your name on the list. I haven't heard yet, but I'm presuming I'll either get my no-place or see my name on the HM list in the next few days.)

We'll keep watch, and celebrate all the HMs!

Thanks!

I fully approve of a whining ban on writers' LJ posts.

Agreed! And I shall start with myself!

Congrats! I've been told that sometimes this happens. Last time I entered, I didn't get on the list, but I did get my certificate. Interesting....

The certificate is what makes it "official", I guess.

Thanks!

Well, an LJ consisting only of my whining about writing would get boring very fast. So I've decided to avoid it.

Thanks!

And have a great time at your workshop! Or did you already go and come back and I missed it?

Well, I look forward to your report back from the workshop. It sounded great! I hope it's a great experience.
