Welcome, Writhmic! You'll find these forums an invaluable resource. Fantasy is also my home, with science fiction a far-off land I only visited occasionally, but I love writing both. Make sure you pick up a copy of a recent volume (my library had several, you don't necessarily need to buy them) for some great examples of how to win. Best of luck this quarter!

Hi! I'm Writhmic. This quarter will be my first submitting. Fantasy is my preferred genre for both reading and writing but I'm hoping to get into science fiction a little more. I've been writing for a few years but as a young author, I don't have much experience to go off of. I'm hoping the forums can help!

Welcome to the forum Writhmic. You'll find a lot of helpful people here. Best of luck for your submission.

Welcome , Writhmic!

The Forum will help! It’s helped many, and not only do members level up swiftly after joining, two Forumites a year on average win the Contest, and Volume 38 has FIVE from the Forum including our published finalist, a record!

Do take the WotF Online Workshop. It will help—the basic rules of a working story are discussed in that workshop. And do take advantage of our critique folder—we have many experienced writers ready to help.

Welcome aboard!

Hello all.

I just started writing again now that I'm retired.  I have dabbled with writing for many years for my own benefit and now I'm actively submitting stories.  I've entered here before, but after reading those submissions I understood why they weren't accepted.  I brushed up a story I drafted a decade ago, submitting it for the 2021 Q4, and received my first HM. 

That HM inspired me to set aside time each day to write.  I'm 220 pages into my first horror novel.  Now for the hard part, keeping motivated...

@toddjones, I'll add my welcome to the gathering throng! I also earned my first HM for a story I'd set aside years earlier, and my first SHM was similar. Since those, the Contest has been a touchstone for me in keeping my writing habits alive, and the community rather like the virtual equivalent of stepping into the bar from Cheers--only, you know, a little more focused on writing than on drinking. I love it here, and I hope you will too!

R: 0 / HM: 10 / SHM: 4 / SF: 0 / F: 1
Entered for Q1.V39 / Q2.V39 draft zero ~85%
Last result: HM for Q4.V38
Revised SHM ('Ashwright') at PodCastle
