Jenn and Kaiwynn are both taking a break right now. Jenn is sick and Kaiwynn is on hiatus.
I'm the only one running the site right now.
Unfortunately, I am beyond busy in New York with my internship and moving in to my apartment for next year.
The submissions will take a little longer to be approved or rejected so please make it easier on myself and yourselves.
Quite frankly, I am beyond tired of telling all of the authors to abide by the rules that are present on this site, yet some simply push submit without previewing, spellchecking , formatting and grammar checking their chapter.
We, meaning all of the mods, are trying to make this site well adjusted yet we can't due to the submissions we get that are often poorly spelled, in need of grammar revisions, and less than 500 words.
It's tiring and I hate coming out like a bitch and haughty, but honestly, it has to be changed in some way.
There are so many betas available on this site that can check everything for you prior to submission, so there's really no excuse.
MS Word and other online services offer to spell and grammar check, as well.
Other than that, I would like to graciously thank all of the authors who put in their submissions in accordance to the rules. You guys really make it easier.
As for now, the submissions will not be as lenient as before, seeing as how so many authors are taking advantage of our "niceness." We are actaully now going to manually spellcheck, grammarcheck, and word-count all submissions submitted.
It's the only way, I think.
Sorry (and thanks),
UPDATE 7/13: ALL REJECTION LETTERS ARE NOW BEING PERSONALISED. DO NOT DELETE THEM BEFORE OPENING THEM. IN EACH REJECTION LETTER, YOU WILL FIND THE REASON AS TO WHY YOU WERE REJECTED. THIS WAY YOU CAN RESUBMIT YOUR CHAPTER AFTER FIXING MISTAKES. LIKE I SAID, EVEN GRAMMAR COUNTS NOW. THANK YOU.
