Re: Success!

My first real writing success...I signed with literary agent Mark Gottlieb of Trident Media! So excited! He's busy pitching my epic fantasy to publishing houses <3 Wish me much luck! The only thing better than winning WotF would be selling my novel and having to withdraw from the competition!

Q4 Reject swap

A hearty congratulations to the HMs, finalists, and so forth! :) Now...this may not be the correct forum for this question, so forgive me in advance for being boorish (not really; I just wanted to use the word 'boorish' before I'd had any coffee, heh). This was my first submission to WotF, and I'd l...

Re: Quarter 3, vol. 29

Congratulations to everyone who did as well as or better than expected...heck, congratulations to everyone who entered instead of just dreaming about it. Working on building my digital portfolio (also for a MISM capstone project) as I await Q4 results...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Well hello. First of all, thank you for your service and the service of your son. Second of all, is your wool cloak white on the outside and purple inside? Third of all, this is a great place to learn about writing and follow-shipping with fellow writers. Fourth of all, why are you being sent to th...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hi! My name is Deborah Wolf. I'm a US Army veteran and now the mother of a soldier (HOOAH!), grad student (mostly so I can live on student loans while I finish my book, shhhhh), and dyed-in-the-wool cloak fantasy geek. I've been getting sent to the principal's office since I was in Kindergarten beca...

Re: Is this a 'wandering' opening?

Here's another tidbit from the DF workshop - setting is important, and a lot of times, setting means description. Even more to the point (and I kind of hate to muddy the waters with this), DF is a setting guy. I used to write description that would have Tolkien muttering, "Get to the point, al...

Re: Is this a 'wandering' opening?

Incidentally, my finalist started with a bit of a wandering opening. I believe DW may have passed on it. Nothing really happens for a page or so. However, I may be confusing world-building for wandering. D I've begun to think that most world-building can be classified as wandering. As near and dear...

Re: Is this a 'wandering' opening?

I'd say this wanders. It's a nice day, the birds are singing, the squirrels are nuts, and the brook is babbling...and then you find out his danger sense is kicking in. I'd like to see you start with the tension of his danger sense and build from there. Nicely written, by the way, I'd keep reading. B...
