Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

Commander Moon stands front and center in the Miramar ready room. "Okay, Jester. Roll the footage on Candice, callsign crlisle." The lights go out. A screen drops down. The commander taps the screen with his pointer. "Eyes up front, people. Let's see what this flygirl's got." ___...

Re: Fyrecon Master Class & Online Con Scholarships

My master class "How to Write Winning Stories that Take the Gold" sold out today. But there's plenty of others at Fyrecon Online to choose from, such as those by David Farland and Martin Shoemaker! And I talked to John Goodwin of Author Services today, and he said Joni is planning on being...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

Each new workshop year, I ask challenge members to review the Super Secrets. If your stories aren't selling or placing higher, I'll guarantee there's something in the Secrets that could help! This year, we're going to do our review a different way. Leah's FB post on "Muzik Man" gave me the...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

Thanks for the commentary, Moon. This one was much stronger at 350 than 250. Lost a lot of context in the final trim. Looking forward to being able to expand upon this one. Thanks again! Understood. Just remember when you take it down from 500 to 250, you aren’t trimming, you are redesigning, Zeet....

Commander Moon enters the mission room at Miramar, looking over the rims of his aviators at the pilots standing at attention. “It’s Monday. We do training exercises on Mondays. The more KYD flights you log, the more you fly against the best, the more likely your name will be awarded top honors by th...

Re: Wulf Moon's SUPER SECRETS Workshop & Challenge!

As Commander Moon enters the muggy Miramar classroom, you hear “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins coming from every corner, but there’s no PA system. All stand at attention. “At ease.” As you sit down, the Commander slips the silvered aviators from his face, slides them in his breast pocket, and stares ...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 37

I'll add my commiserations, Kent. I came in close twice before I won, and it kills you to find out how close you were. As Monk says, "It's a blessing. And a curse." As the pain eases, remember you were there. You hit the bull's eye. You were in the eight Dave chose. And then four assigned ...
