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

1. Got that one already and it is my comfy hideaway. One laptop is so dedicated to writing it's never connected to the internet. The other one only comes on when researching a topic for a story, or checking emails. 2. Routine. That's a hard one there. I have so many irons in the fire I seem to be bu...

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

One thing that has changed for me by reading Wulf's super secrets is I will do less editing and see how my stories work out. It's worth trying.

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.

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.
