This is a good idea. I haven't thought about including color in my writing.

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

I did my blood sucker story on ticks. Was it supposed to be about vampires? I did 999 words, then 500, then 250, then backup to 1,000.
I am becoming a lean, mean, writing machine!

Thanks for giving us such fun assignments Wulf Moon! This was fun!

Is it ok to pitch two books? Or should I just keep to one?

Covers

I was in Barnes and Noble last week to purchase a copy of Fantasy & Science Fiction. While the clerk was searching in the back, I played a game to see which book covers I noticed without trying. The answer was gold, red, and orange covers. The blue and purple book covers did not stand out. They ...

Re: Simultaneous Submissions another question

I would like clarification on simultaneous submissions: 1. For example, if I submit a short story to WoTF, do I wait for the judging to be over for that quarter before submitting it somewhere else? 2. If I submit a story to another contest which allows me to keep all rights, do I wait for the judgin...

Hello... How did you get a published author to critique your story? Hi LoyalRam, I sent a Private Message to an author who had friended me on Facebook and who I follow and I had read his book. I asked politely if he had time, how much his fee was, and told him that it was for WoTF 2nd qtr, vol 37. ...

Question about Word Count

I was wondering how the word count for our stories is found out. When I filled out the entry form for Q 1, vol 37, it just asked me if my story was under 17,000 words. It did not ask me for the word count. Do they just estimate by how many pages it is?
