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

This is why we read many stories that don't grab our hearts, that don't make us care about the protagonist. The story is technically correct, all 7 points, but has no heart. It's missing the emotional element, and that's wrapped up inside the protagonist, and the writer must show us what motivates ...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

He talked about the plot conflict VS the emotional conflict. Sometimes we talk about this as external v internal conflict, too. He also talked about the theme of your story weaving all the way through the story. Every character should relate back to it and the conflicts run parallel, so yes, I thin...

Wulf Moon on Nebula Award's recommended reading list!

The Nebula nomination voting ends February 15th, I believe, so...

BTW would anyone be interested in sharing flash for criticism every week or two? This would be flash after it was built back up from 250 to whatever amount around 999. I know I have one interested.

I got my first rejection from F&SF for the story I sent out -- it was a semi-personal response, so maybe not a form letter? It said the story had an interesting idea but overall didn't quite work for him. Anyway, I'll send the story out to another market soon and in the meantime, I'm already wr...

Quick question: does the second story have to be submitted to another market by the quarter deadline or any time during the challenge?
