Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

Thank you so much! ❤ Hi Elizabeth, congrats on your win :) Thank you so much, Hermione! I'm still in shock about the whole thing! ❤ Haha, I’d be shocked for weeks of even months if I won :) It's so, so, so difficult to win. Wotf is one of the most coveted awards for new writers, but you did it! :)

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 37

Well the story I was thinking of submitting for Q4 has just been accepted for publication in a time travel anthology. Obviously I’m pleased, but I’m now wondering if I should have submitted it to WotF instead! Congrats! What is the name of that anthology? Thanks! It doesn’t have a name yet, but it’...

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

I rewrote my story for the third quarter- from first person to third. And I must say, it allowed me to write a better story. I have so many more options this way as an omnisent observer of what’s happening. Though, if my story was badass enough, first person could still win. I am dying for the resu...

Re: Discussion: Q2 Volume 37

I hadn't heard anything about the judges disliking first person POV, could you tell me where that is? I imagine it is mostly because it is easier to make mistakes in it, such as switching viewpoints, but that is just a guess. Check out Moon's super secrets #25: don’t write a story in 1st person for...
