Well, this is about having your cake and eating it too! Hanging out with Preston, priceless. For everything else, there's Mastercard. : )

But Preston, if you're wearing your ectoplasmic backpack to the ceremony, you'll know why I'm sitting on the *opposite* side of the banquet hall. Those containment fields are twitchy!

See you there!

I shall write my best story for Q4, and let the chips fall where they may.

I second that. wotf024

It's been a while but I'm submitting again. I'm in for Q3 and I have something in the works for Q4.

This time around, I really want to swap critiques on my story. Maybe even give critters.org a try!

I'm new to WOTF, and to writing in general, but after getting SHM in Q2 I'm so stoked to try again! This contest is a bit addictive isn't it? Ok so I see people talking about DF's blog- is it the story doctor one? What other resources/critique groups do you guys use?

Me too! I plan on starting this week and giving myself the full three months to build then revise my story.
