Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

I get a 67.3% score for my short story title. Except i know it has a 0% chance as it violates the rules of what people want to read! Oh well, it was a good writing exercise anyway.

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

Ok, I'm in. At least it's at 2:57pm on the last day instead of 11:48pm like last quarter! Seems prudent to send it in before the New Year drinking time kicks in :)

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

I just barely made it in with 11 minutes to spare. That was an interesting experience trying to write like a crazy person on the last day.I cut it so close, I had to search and replace placeholder names with ones from the internet name generator, lol. https://www.name-generator.org.uk/ It was kind o...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 35

I'm in. Not sure if it is sci fi (Wikipedia's attempt to define "sci fi" wasn't much help), but I'm in.

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: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

The science fiction century by Hartwell, David G. Edition 1st ed. Publication Date 1997 Preferred Shelf Number SCIENCE FICT...

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: Where do you get your inspiration?

I think about interesting scientific scenarios and eventually those morph into ideas for sci fi stories.

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 ...
