Though I've been a ghost this quarter, I wanted to check-in w/ my end-of the-quarter update. For this past quarter, I've submitted two fresh stories over 3k, one to a pro-market, the other to WOTF.

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

BCS has first readers, so the long response time implies they passed your story up to the editor. That means something!


Thanks!

Awesome Becky! I'm very happy (and inspired) for you and your success. I bet there'll be much more to come for you and the rest of the pack.

Nice progress, Peter. I've also been reading the Maass book. There's so many great nuggets and exercises that I'm excited to implement.

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

1) In view of Officer's comment above, if story determines length, why would you ever write a story to a certain length? Sure, the story can dictate word count, but as writers, we determine the story. There are many elements to a story that can be modified so to expand or contract its length. For ex...
