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...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 35

Anyone else feel ready to submit? I don't know how much more I want to tweak this story. I kinda want to submit it now. I know exactly that feeling. You've spent lots of time on the thing. Lived with it. Tweaked it. Edited it. And while once you were in love with the story now you just want it off ...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 35

I'm back after a long break. I needed a change of pace and enjoy catching up by reading forum posts. It's like visiting a faraway land and seeing what the questing knights are up to. I love reading about the March workshop and learning from the great gurus and folks going to the gala and winning the...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

The "small announcement" is posted now. And somehow I feel this thread is the perfect place for such a wacky revelation. wotf004 Of course Gator is beginning to regret mentioning it, as she's starting to realize the full implications... https://ecaimansands.com/2016/06/09/a-small-announce...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello Kristy, Sorry to hear about your registration issues. I spent the better part of a morning (a week or so ago) trying to figure out avatars. 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...

Re: Tout your Kindle and E-Publishing!

Thanks amoskalik, congrats on your three honorable mentions wotf011! I only entered the WOTF contest once before in 2014 and my story was rejected. Writing a good short story is a hard nut to crack. Best wishes, Amy

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

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!
