Good day.

My name is Alexandra Miracle. I write and draw. My main career direction is Design and teaching, but I love to read and write) I want to achieve the opportunity to be screened. I have started with the stories. I'm inspired by fairytales. But also I like to research. One of my favorite academic writers is Prof. Steven Connor. Is it correct to write here any names? 

It's an honor to be here. 

My pleasure for the opportunity to be (the) writer of the Future. 

.          

Respect and Honor,
Alexandra Miracle

@stormyskye Congrats on the first submission & best of luck! Some writers have struck gold on their first submission to the contest. Regardless of the result, I can attest to the forum as a fantastic place to be inspired, to find community, and to learn a great deal. Welcome! As Wulf mentioned, the workshop is a tremendous resource, so is Wulf's thread titled Super Secrets.

Hello all!

I am a stay-at-home mom with a fair few trunked NaNoWriMo novels. My husband is Donovan Cedars here, and he's been encouraging me to enter Writers of the Future for several quarters. Last quarter I actually did! Our kids are small, but writing again is making me feel more like myself after years of the incessant drone of Cocomelon. The littles are starting to learn that Mommy at her laptop is actually busy, and not 100% at their disposal for snacks and Octonaut playtime. So very grateful to reclaim this part of myself it was a mistake to leave by the wayside. Glad to be here!

Hi all

My name is Ginu. I had submitted an entry in Quarter running from April to June 2021. I was planning to submit another in the quarter that ended three days ago but I got swamped. I live in Toronto and have found the forum quite interesting. I would love critiques and hope I could provide help where possible.

Thank you for the welcome and the recommendation. I did take the WotF Online Writing Course in April 2021 and submitted my WOTF entry in May. I didn't find the critique folder so that intel is awesome. Thank you again. salute

"You missed last quarter, but there's plenty of time for the next.", I hope I am not allowed to compete again if you know what I mean 😉

Yes, in all likelihood, I will be competing again but I need to overcome the colossal laziness and mental fuzziness that seem to be my constant companions. hmmmm

Hello, all! I'm new to the forum and semi-new to fiction writing. I studied creative non-fiction (aka personal essay, or memoir) in college, but my first love has always been SFF. You may recognize my name from episode 93 of the WotF podcast, which I got on totally randomly when John found my Goodreads review of WotF Volume 36. 😀 So I've been a fan of the contest for a while, but now I think I'm ready to buckle down and start entering.

Outside of writing, I'm a stay-at-home mom of four kids, the youngest of which just started kindergarten, so arguably I should have more time to write now, right? I love knitting, doing yoga, long-distance running, and video games. I live in Utah, but just moved from the Seattle area where we lived for 12 years.

Looking for others who want to exchange stories and accountability on a regular basis, with the goal of entering every quarter.

Hello

I've been lurking here for a few days, trying to decide if I should post anything. I found that these forums are filled with information and support, so here's me saying hi!, so that I don't feel creepy, like I'm reading other people's conversations with binoculars from the bushes behind a dumpster.

I submitted for the first time this Q3, and am looking to have another one for Q1

Welcome, Liz!

Yes, I do recognize your name! We're glad you found us, winners happen HERE! Entering every quarter is a great idea--you'll find many set goals revolving around such a challenge. There's great topics to read up on to help you advance your skills and knowledge of this contest. Don't miss the WotF Online Writing Course, that's also a great help. And there's a critique swap folder where you can find writers ready to swap stories. Do post in the quarter you plan to enter, as lots of support happens there.

Have fun and welcome aboard!
