Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 37

Against all probability, I managed to submit to last quarter, woo! For the last year or so, every time the end of a quarter was approaching I told myself, "THIS TIME I'll finish this story that I've been chewing on for forever," and every time, the deadline sailed by with my story still s...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 38

I confess, I opened up my email, saw the 'galaxyexpress' message, and my heart did a little stutter-stop until I saw that Joni was just asking after the SHM certificates. Anyone else ever wonder if the Spanish Inquisition used these kind of wait times as one of their torture devices? 'Cause it's re...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Welp! After over a year, the forum has decided to allow me back in! Bring out the champagne!! wotf013 So, true story - in October 2017, I started submitting to the contest. I also signed up for the forum and made a whopping 2 posts or so, before I was perma-banned for - allegedly - spamming. Confuse...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

The best way to 'get better' is to write, write, write. Couldn't agree more! I've always been writing, just not with the intent to publish or submit. But I think ultimately it's unhealthy to keep everything to myself, so I'm gonna start putting it out there and see how it fares in the wild. By the ...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello WOTF writers! I've been following the contest for a few years, but I have yet to make my first submission. I had all sorts of good reasons - no time, need to get better, no great idea for a short story et al. This quarter I've finally given myself a kick in the behind and am putting the finish...

Re: First 1,000 words exchange?

Anyone still doing this? :-) I'd love to find some people to swap beginnings with. I'm new to the forum and working on a story for the current quarter. I've never entered so can't speak to WOTF Best Practices, but I have writing experience (even some smaller-scale contest wins). PM me maybe? wotf001
