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

Wulf! Thanks again for posting your Super Secrets. I'm not in the group, but I've been studying your methods and have written per these proven guidelines to best of my ability.

Re: Tom Doherty WoTF podcast

Re: Flash Swaps (or under 2,500 words)

But, its hard for me to self-s...

Re: Cursing and Sexual Situations in WOTF Stories?

Wulf, Dustin - Thanks for your thoughtful responses. Both helped me decide how to edit this particular story.
