Hi, everyone! My pen name is E.L. Haines, but my friends and my forums call me "Fro." I'm currently writing a series with a knight-errant character, a guy who travels around getting involved in local conflicts and solving local mysteries. My protagonist doesn't just travel between towns, though--he also crosses (unwittingly) between fictional settings. He started in a medieval setting, moved to a Gothic horror setting, and has plans to visit a Western setting and then perhaps an Arabian setting.

I suppose he takes after me, in that regard. I'm currently living in Egypt, after travelling around much of the USA and also visiting several places in Europe. Hey, if any other Writers of the Future are living overseas, give a shout-out!

Hello and be welcome, Fro! Sounds like your prot. has a true renaissance spirit. Very cool. Would like to read your work when you are done.

I believe there are others here that live outside the USA. There is one in South Africa, and another in Germany . . . that I know of. Your are the first in Egypt that I have heard. I have always wanted to go there, and Jerusalem, and Istanbul, and Morocco . . . etc.

Hi everyone!

I first submitted to WOTF about a year ago, but haven't submitted since - although I hope to finish something up and sumbit it this quarter. I just got added to the forum due to some technical difficulties, so I'm glad to be here. I'm currently a student at Brandies University, double majoring in English and Creative Writing, with a minor in Studio Art and a plan to complete the MAT at Brandeis. I grew up in Colorado, am a triplet, and am pretty comitted to trying anything and everything I find enjoyable or interesting. Most recently, I got trained in bronze casting, which made my fantasy-loving-heart very happy.

Glad to meet all of you!

Sadly, it’s not really fixed yet. As a stopgap measure, John or I can manually approve new accounts. And I’m not certain I can do that from my phone (for technical reasons), so approval may be delayed until I get home from work.

Good Morning, everyone. So glad to finally be here. I was caught up in some of the recent technical issues that prevented my email authentication or I would have joined you sooner. :)

I have submitted to WoTF a few times now, and after receiving an incredibly thrilling Silver HM for 1st Quarter 2019 I came searching for information on whether others have polished and resubmitted, how that went, etc. I've been doing lots of reading of your threads while waiting to be able to post, so I'm eager to jump in on some of those conversations and perhaps find some others to swap stories with. Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Welcome to all the new! A shout out to Billy, Obi-Wan (Nic), onlyfro (Fro), BladeQuill, and WriterGirl (Tracy). This is the best place to learn how to win this contest, and along the way, becoming a pro writer! Jump on in to the threads, especially Q3 since that's what we're in right now.

BladeQuill--bad news, beware college creative writing programs. In order to create sellable fiction, you will likely have to unlearn everything you are learning. Don't take that from me, Kevin J. Anderson just said that at Superstars Writing Seminar. Good news? There are a lot of people in this forum that actually have some professional credits, and know what they are talking about. Soak up all you can from them. They are on the path!

Cheers to all! This is a friendly, supportive place. Make your mark on it! A good one!

All the beast,

Hi All,

Relatively new here as well (also got caught up in the technical issues). I submitted for the first time in Q1 and got an HM! Submitted a different story for Q3. And have revised the one from Q1 after gathering some feedback and I have to say I thought it was good when I submitted it originally but I see it is much better now. I love getting critique and feedback on my writing (I'd had some on that story before and improved it based on it) but it is especially good when you get just the right bits of critique that help the light bulb go on in your head for how to take a piece to a new level.

I have a novel that I'm in the final stage of revising (with several other first draft novels and novellas and short stories in that world waiting for my attention) - adult science fantasy. Plus a middle grades fantasy novella that I am finishing up edits before getting it out to critique partners. Plus a historical fiction/fantasy first draft that is mostly done and in dire need of more research.

So much I want to write and so little time!

Well, here goes. Hi, my name is Kim, and I found out about Writers of the Future a few months ago. I haven't submitted yet, but I've got a story in the works right now (which I really should be working on...) that I intend to get in for the end of this current quarter. After that, it is my intention to enter every quarter until either I win, or I get something published. Whichever happens, but that workshop is just too good to be true, and I want to get there.

I'm looking forward to hanging out with all you crazy folks.
See ya'll at the finish line.

I'm Jason J. Willis. This is my new favorite place to be on the internet. The first story I sent in to Writer's of the Future, years ago, came back to me marked with a note saying it was a semi-finalist, a note I did not understand fully until listening to the new podcast. I've been studying all the best info I can find, working with coaches and mentors, and I've been getting feedback on my rejections with top market editors. I hope to break into the market soon, hopefully by winning the contest. That said, i care more about great stories than I care about winning a contest, so if I can help guide anyone else to good mentors and data, just let me know.

Hi all!

I'm Alex Shearer. I submitted to WotF once in the early 2000s and was a quarterfinalist (and was discouraged so didn't do it again - hah!). Since then I've written a bunch of nonfiction (gaming columns) and some comics, and just had a short story published in a thriller anthology.

I'm also married to Christine Rhee, one of the artist winners for this past year! She illustrated Preston's story for volume 35 of WotF. I got to tag along with her at the Illustrators of the Future workshop in Hollywood and it was great - and everyone from Author Services poked me to submit to the competition again, so I'm going to.

Since my heads been in the thriller space for a while now (the short story, and I have a novel I'm shopping out to agents), it's going to take me a few moments to gin up some new ideas for SFF stories - but I'm definitely submitting each quarter until I'm no longer eligible.

Hey, Alex! I know you! You were the one man support team so Christine could benefit from her workshop! Congrats on your peaceful and well-behaved baby boy--that would not have worked so well with other babies I have seen at that age. wotf001 You guys also had good tools to keep him from being disturbed by the noise of crowds and such...well done.

That you got a QF, which is now a semifinalist, says your writing was up to snuff almost 20 years ago. It should only be better now, so yeah, you should be submitting again! Thrillers work well for SF. Just set it on the Moon. Or on Mars. Or on another world. Or against distrusting alien races inhabiting the same planet. Plenty of thrill space to explore in space. Just season it with some cool tech and you have yourself an SF thriller.

We look forward to your comments in the main section. Be sure to comment in the Q you plan to enter. The most support goes on there. And drop in on my SUPER SECRETS if you like--I'm sharing everything I know on how to win this contest. Might be something of value to you in there.

Welcome aboard!

Hey, Kim! Welcome to the forum! You are correct--you can't beat that workshop and gala, there is not a single one better on the planet for spec fic writers (because you'd have to charge $30,000 per workshop member just to break even!). We had a special treat with Orson Scott Card being there for the week--he hasn't been a teacher there for many years. Combine that with the knowledge of David Farland and Tim Powers, and you had a powerhouse of instruction. But not to be overlooked are the last two days--that was my favorite part. In one hour knowledge imparting flash sessions, we had instruction from former winners, the bestselling judges, and even industry experts in various aspects of publishing, like the reviews editor Liza from Locus. Nnedi Okorafor outlined her career path from her WotF win to her bestselling status today, and how she deals with deadlines. Dean Wesley Smith detailed why he wasn't selling in the first stage of his career (made the mistake of trying to edit his stories to perfection, and admits he was ruining them), and then told us how he became an indie bestselling writer and publisher. Larry Niven told us about a math equation he found that made Ringworld's dimensions accurate, and how close he had come to failing on that. For me, the most powerful aspect of the workshop was hearing insights from so many experts that had been there, done that. There is no other spec fic workshop that places so many experts in front of you with the best advice they can share to help you succeed. It is indeed worth every effort to strive to achieve. It is no wonder so many that have been to that workshop have gone on to create stellar careers. Author Services gives you everything you need in ego boost (you have to believe in yourself to succeed and achieve), expert teaching from real bestselling experts in the field, and the tools and team necessary to brand you as a professional writer and to publicize your brand.

Keep writing. Keep studying. And then write some more. You will find excellent support and knowledge on these pages, some of it direct from that workshop you desire. May desire create need. May need create passion. May passion create drive. May drive commit you to perform the work necessary to win.

And I say that last paragraph to all of the new here.

All the beast,

OMGs thank you for your wonderful words, Wulf. I watched your acceptance speech in the Awards Gala, and was seriously moved, and here you are, replying to my intro on the forum. Is it okay if I'm a little star struck? That's kind of how I've been feeling since I signed up here.

Oh I want to get to that Workshop. Every time I see pictures from it, or past Winners commenting on all the amazing things they learned, I get teary-eyed. Hopefully I can turn that emotion into enough drive to see it through. Other than making it through school (I'm an Massage Therapist in real life), I've never really achieved anything of worth in my life, so, if I can do this... I can do anything.

Your posts on the Super Secret Challenge have been the most inspiring. And the most humbling.

Ok, enough gushing. Since signing up, I have gotten a crash course on what it takes to Win, and now I just need to do it.

Thanks, Kim, for your kind words. There's more pictures of the workshop on my facebook page--send me a friend request there and you'll see additional pictures I took at the workshop. I'm still posting them, a little at a time.

As for our worth, it's important to recognize we have great worth--we are unique in this universe, and that means we have unique things to say. Packaging it up and transmitting it effectively for others to visualize and understand is our job if we wish to become professional writers. The more we do it, the better we get at it. In this contest, you'll know you're getting better at it when you start getting certificates. In the professional marketplace, you'll know you're getting better at it when you start gettting personal rejections and invitations to send more.

So feed on the encouragement here, find a good writing partner that's ahead of you on the path (there are many here with experience willing to help), but most importantly, keep writing fresh stories! There is no substitute for practice. We must write, and write, and write to hone our craft.

All the beast!

I'm pretty sure you've achieved a great many things in life. It's usually just a matter of perspective. E.g. you say that you're a Massage Therapist, so you've worked your way to that profession, and are probably helping other people get better. There are several achievements in there! wotf010
Although, I have to say that I feel the same about this workshop. It's got to be an incredible feeling to win, and going to the workshop you just have to feel like a superstar. wotf019
Good luck winning this!

HI there,
Submitted a story back in 1987 to the contest, but got a rejection, but like Wulf Moon, that did not stop me from getting up and getting back on that writing horse. I have kept writing to hone my skills and hopefully one day to get a winning story...

Thank you and something else I don't know if I should mention here:) (but I actually got to meet Jack Williamson and he critiqued my story back then). I now know what I need to do going forward to be the best writer...

Wowza!!! That's so cool! The Dean of SciFi himself!!!

I once had a business trip to Bangor, Maine and got to see Stephen King's house. More exciting still - the UPS truck arrived while I was standing there oggling like some star-struck schoolgirl. I figured I was about to either see him or Tabitha. They must love when fans come to stare. wotf001
