A bit more about the first of three disappointments

The expectation given out was, composers to be notified 16 July.

What happened was, no notification, but the selected composers names were posted in what passes on the Internet for a press release (it is, of course, a kind of publication) 10 or 11 August.

The much-delayed courtesy” of e-mail notice to the composers not chosen came in at last, yesterday.

Boilerplate, of course;  otherwise is not to be expected.

Give them credit, that late (horribly late) notice is several notches better than niente.

Still do not expect anything in future, which will not stop me from sending in.

There is always the chance of a freak accident.  I make no bones about the fact that my chances may hinge upon freak accidents.
