Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

I just got my copy of 35 so I plan to read, summarize, and try to put something together that will have a chance to make it past Kary and on to Dave.

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

Two times I was unable to submit by wizehive so I emailed my sub to Joni. After all results were posted I called Joni and was informed my story was an r. Not hearing anything had me falsely thinking I was going to place higher than that. It was totally deflating to put it mildly. The lesson learned ...

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

I think once you register and save your password you are able to submit. Pretty sure after the change to a new host everyone had to re-register.
That happened to me for two q's until I read the small print about the new host and re-did my stuff. wotf017 Just saying.

Hello mrtevebaugh. Stop by the other threads and join the conversations. Entering every quarter is an excellent habit to cultivate.

Good luck with your efforts.

Re: VOL 35, ANTHOLOGY, WORKSHOP & GALA EVENT

When I said I would be watching live I meant streaming. In years past I watched the recordings after the actual event.

As you go forth Preston and Wulf to the gala we forumites are proud of your accomplishments.

Re: Writers of the Future asks for your podcast input.

Wulfy, I listened to your War Dog story and I think it would be great to hear something like that in a WOTF production.

Whether by the author or a competent performer it would get my attention.

I would like to hear the stories from the anthology. It would add an alternate experience for the audience to enjoy.

Last year's first R was on April 16. wotf004 The two Thursdays at that time this year are the 11th and 18.

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

I've spent the last couple of weeks reading Orson Scott Card's Homecoming Series(5 volumes).
Very unique style. I guess that's why he is such a successful author.
Now it's time to get down to some serious writing. wotf042

Thanks for the update thegirlintheglasses. I had a story written for Q2 but it fit the guidelines for another contest so there it went.

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

I finished the story I was writing for Q2. After reading it I think it may not be a good fit for wotf. wotf017
However it seems to fit the guidelines for another contest so I will be submitting it there.
I'm confident I'll have something more suitable for the contest in plenty of time. Write on.
