Re: Where do you get your inspiration?

I have a list of interesting scientific what if ideas I’d like to explore. I think about them and daydream until I get story ideas that both work as a story and also as a vehicle for exploring the idea.

Re: Discussion - Q2 - Volume 35

I am super excited to get an honorable mention! It's so awesome to know that 1. David Farland actually liked my story enough to read it all the way through and 2. he deemed it worthy of an honorable mention! I remember struggling to write that story starting over a year ago. The ideas were good, but...

Re: Why Do You Write?

I just write because it seems like an interesting art form to try and master. I have a bucket list of things to try in this life, like writing a song (did it, it was just ok), write a screenplay (done), write a novel (working on it), make a commercial games website (done), etc. If other people like ...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Huh “litigation”? Did you mean to type “rejection”? The rejection is ok. It was my first sci fi story and to figure out the conventions, I read an anthology of the greatest sci fi short stories of the last century. Which meant that I ended up writing a really nice sci fi story that followed the conv...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hi, I just sent in my second WOTF entry today. My first entry last year got rejected. I went to the WOTF award ceremony last year and enjoyed it -- it was great getting to meet the WOTF winners and say hello and get my anthology signed! Not sure if I’m going to go this year - I’m tempted but family ...
