I tried that and ended up here!! huh

I realize i went and posted this 'hello this is me' thread in the wrong place (nice start Paul!!) never mind.

I'm a 42 ( pale ) year old English ex pat, now living in Israel. I've got three kids, a patient wife and particular nasty addiction to Typhoo Tea, beer and Manchester United.

I also love to write stories and pick the brains of people who can write them far better than i can.

Yeah! Sweet Corn, I remember that one (and getting me to remember something that's been submitted is a feat in itself).

Good story, too. Even though we did ultimately reject it, there was some discussion.

So am I right in thinking that you live on a kibbutz?

Yes that's me. Hot and sweaty in this part of the world at the moment. I'm milking bloody cows at 3am, so it's off to beddy byes for me.


BTW, i'm going to take the fact that you discussed it as a half acceptance, lol. Wink Very Happy

Flabby -- I think that should be the title of your next story: "Milking Bloody Cows".

I believe the psychologists refer to to this phenomenon as "projection". lol

Around here, I'm known as the guy who wants to accept everything. I do have standards, we just haven't sunk low enough for them to be apparent yet. Wink

I think instead of unanimousness, a split vote should be decided by the author. cheers

Seriously, there's plenty more where those first two came from, so continue to be picky and hold out until you get exactly what you want.

That's what we've been doing. We have rejected a LOT of really good stories, for various reasons. Some of the reasons are sort of nit-picky, but our feeling is that if we want to really wow people, we have to be nit-picky. We want this endeavor to be something we can be proud of, and somthing you can be excited to read.
