Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello! Everyone I know calls me Autumn. I've been writing for more years than I'll admit to but this is my first go at short stories. I wrote my first epic fantasy novel in the middle grade that thankfully never saw the light of day. Life happened and now that things have settled down I'm in a plac...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Here's an idea, since Sean Hazlett dropped by (hi Sean!). Why don't we fill the short jaunt to 5000 with advice on how to win the contest from former winners. It can be something you did that turned the page, something you learned at the workshop, something someone told you on a critique, advice fr...

Re: Contest Questions

Can the story be more than 17000 words? Nope. Nor can it be over 68 pages of courier new 12 pt 1.5" margins. (someone correct me if I'm wrong on the #s) Reason: 250 words per page (printed) x 68 = 17000 Just a friendly reminder: 17,000 on word count is the max you may submit. And it's actual w...

Welcome Olivia and Grace and everyone else I may have missed! It's good you realize the need to submit your stories, here, or anywhere else. Writing is communication. To communicate, you need a message, a transmitter, and a receiver. Your story is your message. Getting it published in something is t...

Re: Success!

Made my very first ever paying sale last week! It took six months to hear back from the publication and to be honest, I'd completely forgotten I had submitted. Just another reminder, I suppose, that patience is a must in this game. I'll post more info when the publication goes live (sometime early ...

I write a combo as well. My two pro sales are in science fiction, but I love writing fantasy. If you want to hear one of my humorous fantasies, click on the website link and it's in the blog on podcast. Funny thing, you do need to research when you write about science, but when I'm writing historica...
