Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

As a quick note: if you're PMing me to ask about the blood sucker prompt details, and I don't have your email already, please include it in your message! If you're not comfortable with that, I can work something out with you, but the information will be much easier to receive and read via email.

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

To add on to this, since he's been too modest to mention it thus far: Moon's article from HOW I GOT PUBLISHED... also won best non-fiction article. All these wins are hard-earned and well-deserved, Moon. Thank you for all the work you put into us and the heart you put into your stories. You've shown...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

Thanks for being so patient with me, all. Been doing lots of extracurricular activities lately, especially pre-launch stuff for WotF, and I need to get back to bullet journaling and checking my schedule daily!

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

Looks like we're missing the Monday prompt. Okay, I've got a good one, and if you write a flash to this prompt, you could receive a wonderful reward. I'll let that be the teaser. You'll just have to trust me. Your Monday writing prompt is: BLOOD SUCKER. Have at it! More on this to come. Beastmaster...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

On the subject of rostering: I believe my last comment on this subject got buried by responses to the most recent assignment (which I promise I'll respond to this weekend!), so I'll post one last time. There are still a few who aren't shown on the roster as having completed and submitted their non-W...

storysinger, I believe they are counted as one, and that's how I've been counting others in the flash challenge so far. Will defer to Moon if he feels differently, as always. :)

Hey, folks! The deadline for the quarter has officially passed. There are still a few that I don't have down as having submitted their non-WotF story. This is not a shame post!

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

Good morning, challenge beasties! This week's Monday prompt is: WOLF MOON . No, seriously. The wolf moon is this week, and it's going to be a penumbral eclipse (which you may be able to catch if you're in the Eastern hemisphere). This is the coolest time to write about it! There's some pretty intere...

My first submission for Q2 is out! Not sure if it counts or not, though, because I've been working on it since the beginning of December...either way, I will be writing at least another two stories this quarter. :)
