I am 42 and living in Utah. I have been wanting to submit to WOTF for almost 30 years now. I first discovered it as a young teenager on the grocery store book shelves when Volumen III was fresh out. Dave Wolverton (or Farland) won that year with his On My Way To Paradise story. I dreamed of entering for almost a decade after that, but never finished a story I felt could win.
I recently attended a Comicon where Wolverton spoke about the WOTF contest, and it got me excited again.
So it only took me 30 years of dreaming about this contest off and on, to finally get a story together that was worthy to enter. Now the waiting begins.

Thanks for the welcome! Just noticed your location and my heart sang a bit.
Yes, I'm right there!
How about you, then? Are you by any chance Greek or of Greek origin, or you're just a fan of the goddess?
I'm not remotely Greek, and I've never been to Greece. I'm just a big fan of hers.

Yeah. It's all I seem to be able to think of for the last day and a half. These next three months are gonna grind so slow.
Just obeying the All-Cap instruction above.
And I just wanted to say I really respect the community you guys have built here - there's a ton to learn from reading the collective sharing that happens on this board and I hope to contribute in some small way at some point. I'd also like to get in on some Word exchanges at some stage in the future and will look forward to posting in the right spot for that.
(I am though what the youngsters call a Newb...)
