Re: Over-thinkers Anonymous

Thank you, everyone. Thank you for taking the time to respond. I will endeavor to streamline my ideas, and figure out what 'better' is. I have to remind myself, it takes practice and persistence. And, as someone else pointed out to me on FB, I have to give myself permission to fail. I've been beatin...

Over-thinkers Anonymous

So, lately my problem is keeping ONE story idea. I start a story. It's a cool story, I like it. Then I get an idea that changes the idea slightly, and I think 'Ok, that's cool. That works'. I re-start the story. But it doesn't stay there. It keeps morphing and mutating and then before I know it, I d...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Keep writing. Keep studying. And then write some more. You will find excellent support and knowledge on these pages, some of it direct from that workshop you desire. May desire create need. May need create passion. May passion create drive. May drive commit you to perform the work necessary to win....

Re: First Four-Fifty Critique Exchanges

The people you specifically need confidentiality from are the judges. Anything that might identify your story should be discussed in private confidence (PM or e-mail) with the person/people with whom you trade, in order to prevent disqualification. It is a bit of an honor system in that you're trus...

Re: First Four-Fifty Critique Exchanges

I'm in. Is this still a thing? How do I get in on this? Something I'm confused on: If we're supposed to be keeping these confidential - no names, no titles, whatever - how does swapping my story bit with Writer X's story bit, and critiquing on each other's work remain confidential? I know that I got...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Well, here goes. Hi, my name is Kim, and I found out about Writers of the Future a few months ago. I haven't submitted yet, but I've got a story in the works right now (which I really should be working on...) that I intend to get in for the end of this current quarter. After that, it is my intention...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

This is a great idea! I've already missed the beginning of 36, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't start now. I've got 3 stories on the go right now, the plan is to get one of them in for the end of this current Quarter, then keep going.

Thanks for the Challenge, Wulf Moon! I'm all over this!
