It's funny that you say that. In my hm most of the characters bit the dust one after the other.

That being said, Morgan's' advice is spot on. Signing up for Dave's daily emails is very helpful too. He tells you what he looks for in a story.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Welcome to the Forum Daniel. I lived in Manitou and Colorado Springs when I was stationed at Ft. Carson. Wulf got my attention when he mentioned the Superstars Writing Seminar. If there's any way I can make it happen I will revisit your fine city and make it to the event. wotf008

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

This quarter's entry might be my easiest one yet. I had a story around ninety percent finished for Q1 when another idea took center stage.

Of course, if another story appears I will write something new.

That's awesome to read those words Wulf. It makes what happened to me yesterday seem a little less of a thing to worry about.

Re: What's Your Short Story Writing Process?

I have an eraser board on the wall in my office. When I get an idea for a story I write it out.
Whether it's a title or one or two sentences it stays up there until I use the prompt.

Some ideas stay up for a long time but nothing gets erased until they are incorporated into a new story.
