Exciting, except I'm out of practice. Better start stretches before the twitching starts. wotf018

It seems to me that Pro-ing Out it Quite Prestigious!

Re: A Sense of Belonging

My HM was about that, but I didn't realize that was the heart of the story until I tried turning it into a novel. It's probably lucky I got the HM without getting my focus right to begin with.

Re: Four in Thirty-Five (4 in 35!)

I considered hedging my bet and not submitting my Q4 short story. I could continue editing it for 3 months and submit it for Q1 V35!!! But I didn't. I hunkered down, polished it the best I could by midnight WotF time and hit SUBMIT. So, now I have to...you know...do the work a writer does, and begin...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

I just hit submit with 6 minutes to spare. I hope Q4 V34 submission closes at Midnight PACIFIC time. wotf005
Good Luck to all who entered.

And good writing to everyone for the next quarter. I am about to have a glass of wine and go to bed!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

I've been out of the WotF game for a while, working on a novel, but I'm back. I've missed checking in on all of you. When I saw the 4 in 35! post on the Forum, I thought it was the perfect excuse to wait to submit, but my critique group gave me the "A Dead Line Is A Dead Line" speech. They...

Re: Four in Thirty-Five (4 in 35!)

I've been missing in action but I'm ready to take the plunge again! 4 in 35! looks like the perfect place to start. wotf024 Now, I just have to decide if this older story that I planned to give the Quickie Edit and shove into Q4 V34 at the last minute would be better kept for Q1 V35 with a more thor...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

No wotf005 I fretted and fretted and pulled out an old story and polished it. When I tried to enter it the site was down, and I was too nervous to go through the "Is my submission actually submitted, again?" So, I decided to add a frame story to make it a more viable entry and will submit ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

LD ... I've been blessed with a HUGO nomination for editing and as a former long-term ASIM editor, slush reader and publisher (and obviously fore-most I'm a writer), I'm happy to offer my limited experiences


Sounds like more than "limited experience" dear sir! wotf009

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

I have been lurking here for about a year and finally registered in April, but shamefully, this is my first post. Sorry for stalking without sharing. I have appreciated all the perspectives given here. It is a cozy place to hang out.
