Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

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...

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

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.

So after months, weeks, and hours of editing and polishing, I’m getting very close to submitting my story. The closer I get to my deadline, the more my confidence dwindles. The sole reason I chose to give this contest a try is to see for myself if I have what it takes to take on writing as more tha...

Gah, Sorry TimE! I hadn't really meant to knock you either. As I've caught up on the thread, some of the recent tone (in general) has irked me and so I came out a little rough. I think you're right, though. We'll keep it positive.

This 10,000 hours thing has been debunked, yet is often quoted. I reckon I could spend 10,000 hours practising the piano alongside a teacher, and I'd still be rubbish - or at least not very good.
