Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

I think Brittany asked how to do denouement when the protagonist dies. From the perspective of the crew in "Weep No More for the Willow," I did that. It's in the latest Deep Magic. Can't say more, it will wreck the story for folks.There's plenty of other examples, however. Somebody help B...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

RE: First Assignment: Copper Nickel article response about why flash fiction can be beneficial to writing longer pieces. This bit in particular spoke to me: "I'm on board with defining flash as a deliberate intensity on the writer’s part." Learning to write with intensity--emotional, intel...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

Wow! This thread is POPPING!!! I love it. I'm super stoked reading all of these cool story seeds. Dining on Soup--awesome. Vibe reminded me a bit of "Are you the Life of the Party" in volume 35. Super creepy. Really enjoyed swiftpotato's master deception lady--that is a story I would LOVE ...

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

I'm in! I really liked boiling this story down to bare bones. When I expand it out, I know where I'm going--and what the reveal is really about. It was...enlightening. Thanks Wulf!

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

I've been hesitant to throw my hat in for the volume 37 challenge because this last quarter took a lot of out me and I wanted to weigh out my commitment as Wulf said. I mean, this is voluntary and the man is giving his time. I better take it seriously. Well, I've taken the time and I want in. This y...

Re: Revision Tips and Tricks

Wonderful to see this here. I'm desperately trying to get my Q4 in, but I want to come back once it's over (Oct 1 lol). I have a story I'd love to resubmit (2 really but 1 I'd focus on first), and I think I know what I want to do with it, but at the same time, I'm worried I'll destroy it (Since I wr...

Re: A Word Re: Revisions

This thread made my head hurt. There is always room for discussion. I like to learn from a variety of places and people. I love hearing how people discover what works for them—heck, in talking about craft I find things that work for me. But the original post sounded like a rebuke, not a discussion. ...

About two years ago I took an online writing class and the first thing we did was define our WHY. Why do you write? To see your name in print/literary journals, to write a best-seller, to inspire others, to get noticed by an agent, to win awards, to be esteemed by writing peers, to start important c...

I would like to state, for the record, that my HM from this quarter is currently being held for further consideration by the first place I sent it after WotF. No edits were made. The story may not sell, but I still feel this is proof of concept regarding the current conversation. Every market has u...

July seems awfully late for Rs and HM results for Q2. wotf017 I think with Dave's health scare earlier in the year, it set him back. The email does say 2nd quarter in it. Hopefully, Q3 isn't this slow. We all know Q4 won't be. It can't--because they have a book to print! lol Best of luck to those s...

Congratulations, Brittany! You solved my riddle, you won the prize! The book of poetry in my story, "Last Words," serves the function of Excalibur in Arthurian legends. It's like the One Ring in Lord of the Rings. But my little flash story is not fantasy, so the book of poetry doesn't hav...

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

I think...I think I've got your riddle Wulf. I'm thinking THE BOOK. I don't see it in the 250 version. And I'm thinking its existence makes it possible for him to PROVE what he's done. That makes the stakes higher. Maybe? Thinkin' out loud here.
