Re: How to know when it is self doubt versus a bad idea?

Agreeing with all these guys. I've never written a bad idea. Usually the ideas I come up with are ones I like to write about. Now, where I have messed up before is the execution, but luckily I have a writing group that is not afraid to tell me straight up that something needs to be fixed in HOW the ...

Looking for a critique/feedback

Hi everyone! My short story that I'm considering for Q4 finally finished making its rounds in my writer's group, and I would like another pair of eyes on it, if anyone would be so willing. Any kind of feedback would be welcome. I wrote it based of a random prompt challenge and I'm really proud of wh...

Re: Short Story vs Novel

Hi all, I have been wondering what the difference between a short story and a novel is, besides length. What are the main differences? I want to change one or two of my short stories into YA novels, but I don't know how to go about it. Thanks for any help you can give me! There's just... more. Of e...

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

I just realised my Q2 HM was only a second draft. How many drafts do people do generally? My previous rejections and HMs would have been at least 4 or 5 drafts. It's taking me longer to write stories, but less drafts feels like a good thing! For me, it really depends on the story. Generally, I'll d...

Re: What have you done when the words no longer flowed onto the page?

Usually I just move onto another project, or do something else entirely. This doesn't happen very often for me, but when it does, it means I'm overworked, and I need to let my brain rest. A lot of times I'll read a book to pass the time until I feel like writing again.

I actually just cranked out a story over the past few days that I liked much better than one I started at the top of June, it's going through my writing group now, and I'm hoping to get it turned in soon :)

Submitted for Q3 and already writing for Q4. Phew! What a horrible week this has been. I started on 3 stories until I finally chose which one to send. It feels SO good to have this done! I love the story I submitted! And I am loving my next story. I felt exactly the same way when I turned my Q3 in....
