Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

The story I chose is one I never thought would exist. Towers of Midnight. A Wheel of Time novel. Anyone familiar with the series knows Robert Jordan passed away before finishing his masterpiece, leaving his fans devastated. Brandon Sanderson was enlisted by Jordan's wife to bring the story to it's c...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

The story I've chosen is Poseidon's Eyes by Kary English In the first two sentences we are informed that all we need to know about the town is to understand one man. Kary gives us the name and the description of her character, Peyton Fain, in the rest of the first paragraph. The terms she uses creat...

I was very happy to see your first class was sold out Wulf. wotf010 I enjoyed every minute of the session. It was a blast putting faces to the names of the forumites that attended.
I don't know what happened when the master class ended, I went to a room full of strangers so I called a day.

Re: Cursing and Sexual Situations in WOTF Stories?

As writers, sometimes we tend to back up and repeat the sentence just written. Something about it just doesn't feel right. If the problem is about bad or questionable grammar, you're wasting time and energy. Basically we're all learning to achieve a level-up moment. Don't take a chance on adding a p...
