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

I think I'm in Wulf Moon's Fyrelite Online Master Class. I saw Wulf's recent facebook post that indicated one more seat remained and felt an impulsive tug. I got the following message: "Thank you for registering for Fyrecon 4. You will receive a confirmation and receipt email shortly. Sincerely...

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

Congrats to the HM's, Silver HM's, and semifinalists! I guess it's too early to hear from the finalists. Commiserations to the Rs, I know how you feel. I'm impressed by those of you who are being proactive instead of climbing under a rock for awhile (that's the way I responded at least for a while. ...

Thanks, I'm doing my best to hang on to my sanity and be productive. Tough, though. By the way, I'm rooting for you as I'm aware you've been a regular contest entrant for a long time now. I'm sure your time is coming soon! Good luck Dustin!

Just finished the online workshop yesterday so I'm way behind on the assignments and challenges here. I had to skip some of the practicals [family issues; Mom with dementia], but intend to employ them to sharpen the story I began around the trapped in a box challenge from a while ago. I'm hoping to ...

Hi Guthington: Welcome to our group. I just wanted to say your curriculum vitae is MOST impressive. Most likely, you're a modest person, but when anyone holds TWO Master's Degrees - a Master of Arts, and a Master of Science, AND A DOCTORAL DEGREE, wow! I have no doubt your expertise in biology when...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

I have a question that may seem on the newb side. Does anyone ever enter both writer and illustrator contests in the same quarter? What I'm thinking of entering for Q1 (assuming I have the time of course) has a nice visual that is tempting to try to illustrate. Follow up... has anyone ever won both ...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 35

Just my opinion, but it seems to me if they want to see shorter stories, perhaps the word count limit in the rules should be lowered to, say, 10K max? I hope not. And I think not...this limit was set long ago. I like long stories, it's what I also write. Darci Stone's story is a good example of why...

But I don't recall troubles with registration, so it must be a recent phenomenon. I have an entry in 2016 quarter 3 after taking a 2 year break. So you've...

Hey, I entered my first WOTF entry for quarter three. I've enjoyed reading your posts. Not sure what I'm doing exactly, but I feel compelled to write science fiction. Luck to everyone!
