Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

I'm in. Probably my last story for a while, having a baby really puts a kink in my writing schedule, but I'll keep trying. Best of luck everyone! HM - 1 R - 1 Maybe keep a parenting diary and then add a science fiction element to it. Bam, you've got an epistolary piece that's deeply meaningful...wh...

Re: Flash Fiction

My only pro sales were flash, but I wouldn't use a flash story for WOTF. Mike Resnick buys plenty of flash fiction for Galaxy's Edge, but WOTF isn't his brainchild so I suspect it doesn't go over well for the contest.

My boss asked me why I keep checking my phone. "Because, John....because." he cracked a joke and said I'm fired if I don't get at least 3rd place. Raising the stakes Lol.

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

Anyone care to speculate what place you'll receive? ...yes, I know some y'all will view this as sick or perhaps cruel.... But let's roll with it. In the past three months, I've gone from thinking "I'm sure to win"... To "I'll be lucky to get HM". Now, I'm thinking SF. Reason: my...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Well, my name is Ryan and I wanted to join this forum because it's been a useful insight into WOTF. A little about me: I'm 32, a Marine Corps vet (admin clerk), dad, and biomedical tech for a hospital system in Arizona. Been writing for about 6 years. My history with the contest is sparse and spread...
