Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

I have permission to announce! wotf059 wotf059 I got third place. Joni called me Monday and I’m still glowing. It feels so darn good to finally get the win. This piece was an HM a year ago. I made a small but crucial change, lopped 10% out of the first couple pages, and now it hits all the right no...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Workshop & Challenge!

The sequel is the bit following something that happened to your character. There are four stages of reaction to a scene/event: 1. The emotional reaction: how am I feeling after this event? Whether this is short or long depends on the kind of book you're writing. 2. Reason reaction: am I hurt? Is th...

Re: SUPERSTARS Writing Seminar

I think writers tend toward the introvert side in general. One of my favorite books of the last few years is called Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. It helped me understand myself in a new light. But most relevant in this case, she talked about how we ...

Re: SUPERSTARS Writing Seminar

Wulf, few follow up questions. 1) How many business cards did you end up using? 2) You mentioned pitch meetings. Did you have to sign up for those in advance or you just show up during the blocks in the schedule marked as appointments? 3) Who were the pitches with? Agents, publishers, both?

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

So I thought I was done with my Q4 submission. But now I am four weeks in on Dave's Writing Enchanting Prose class and madly trying to apply what I have learned to my story. Just not enough time! Guess I will just have to submit it as is when the day comes and hope for the best like every other time.

Re: 4 in 36

I'm committed. Barely got something in for Q1 but got an HM so that was exciting. Much happier with my Q2 submission but it was still pretty last minute. I've got a completed draft of my Q3 done, so I have a lot more time for revisions this time! Fight the good fight all. We're already halfway there...
