I've been doing a lot of editing (and writing) recently. Decided last night to ease off the throttle for a day and just enjoy reading. 

So glad I did. Reminded me, in part, why I write.

THE SUPER SECRETS OF WRITING BOOKS ARE ABOUT TO COME OUT!  THIS SPECIAL EDITION IS THE FIRST! I actually consulted with David Farland on one of the chapters in this, and when he read the final he said, "Super cool!" I can't tell you how much I wish he could have been here to see this moment. I feel like a kid graduating from college, but his dad isn't there to see it. At least I did a nice tribute to Dave inside. And put in a good pitch for people to join the Writers of the Future Forum. Let's see if they listen.

Smile (Yeah, I just had to try one of the new pears out. Juicy sweet!)
 
Okay, here's the post:
 
IT'S ALIVE!!! A special release created for my author guest appearance at Salt Lake FanX Comic Con, September 22nd-24th! This TOP SECRET publication debuts at Wulf Moon Enterprises booth #2453. Come see my first indie published work, and learn about the Kickstarter for the award-winning Super Secrets of Writing! See you there!

August check-in! I submitted 1 story, wrote 1 shorter short story (still longer than flash), 1 KYD, and multiple flash fiction stories. For some reason I'm on a flash kick. It's been great because I've been really honing in on openings and endings. There's no room for forgiveness when the story has to be 100 words, under 500 words, or under 1000 words.

Did you have a great holiday weekend, Challenge Beasties?

I celebrated the Super Secrets coming out at Salt Lake FanX Comic Con this month with a nice bottle of wine with my wife, and completely forgot about the Monday writing prompt! So here it is:

 

Dream Grinder.

May that provide you with grist for the mill! Wink  

Pear up and get those Q4 winners written!

Nice, Jarrod. I submit there regularly. 

They always have terrific stories. Hopefully I'll see my name there next to yours one day soon.

The Keeper of Records paused outside the dragon’s lair, a niggling worry at the back of his mind. It wasn’t his pending meeting with the Dragon, he’d been working toward that for months now and was excited to learn more of dragon lore. No, it was a premonition that he had forgotten something.

He wracked his brain. He’d written his requirements for the month, submitted to markets and received both rejections and acceptances. He’d watched the bloody scroll as each challenge beasty’s name appeared. The Wulf would be pleased with—

His jaw clenched. Crap. He’d forgotten to send his report.

The Keeper scrambled into his pack, withdrawing parchment, quill and ink. After a hastily scrawled report he dashed into the Dragon’s lair. Hopefully one of the dragonette apprentices would be willing to deliver his report to @wulfmoon

It wasn’t how he wanted to start his interview, with a petition, and dragons never offered anything for free, but the report must be sent. Only one month remained in the Super Secrets Challenge and the challenge beasties were holding strong.

Happy Monday, Challenge Beasties! Heres your writing prompt:

The poisoned chalice.

Also, once you’ve finished submitting your Q4 for the year, I’d like you to look back over this workshop year and analyze what it helped you to accomplish. Did your output increase beyond what you formerly believed you were capable of? Did you have signs your writing has leveled up? How about WotF results so far? Any nice personals? Any sales to respected markets? How have the Super Secrets worked for you?

Please share your year end progress report whenever you are ready. And don’t forget, we still have two quarterly results to go to see how far everyone has come! 

I’ve enjoyed seeing each of you stay the course, complete all the challenges and assignments, and to watch your progress! Well done!

To your future careers!

Beastmaster Moon

This is cool. FREE book IF you hurry. These Amazon deals only last a day or so, so grab it now. After the Gold Rush by Third Flatiron Publishing. This is a pro-rate anthology I challenged the Wulf Pack to target. EIGHT of us had our stories accepted! Several had never been published before! 

To have so many stories accepted from one writing group on an open call was so unique, the editor thanked us and this workshop in her introduction. A stellar accomplishment!

CLICK THIS now before the free offer floats away. Enjoy your free gift by these great writers!

I posted this announcement to social media today, but it’s fitting I post it here. Half the writers in this anthology are from the Super Secrets Workshop, several from this current year! Well done, Challenge Beasties!

Here’s the post:

The secret is out! I was commissioned to write a story for the Murderbirds anthology, and I’m happy to announce it’s been accepted and will be added to this collection of wild avian fiction by wonderful authors! However, there’s one catch! It only triggers when the Kickstarter hits the $4200 level. It’s within reach, and Kickstarter has already awarded the anthology its coveted “Project We Love” badge. Why? Because of what this project represents—writing groups working together to help their stories take to the skies!

You can help this fellowship of writers. Order a copy through the Kickstarter today, and don’t miss some of the awesome bonus items! And if you can’t support right now (we’re writers, we’ve all been there) it’s a simple thing to support the project with a share. We LOVE you for that! 💜

Thank you, my friends, for helping us get the word out, or supporting us to bring this cooperative dream between writing groups to life! The link to view the Kickstarter is in the comments section. Or do a quick tap on the share button. Or both! 😁 Thanks for all the support, it’s so appreciated! Cheers!

 

Travel to the Kickstarter here, if ye dare enter this realm! Here there be dragons. Feathered ones!

Under the gun.

Ha, ha. Had to double check what this was.

We'd say 'Under the pump' in the mighty land of Oz. (at least I think that's the equivalent)

@cweaver it’s the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. I’ve read it off and on since I was a teenager and now am a subscriber. It’s a dream to see my work in an issue. I also have a lot of admiration for the editor’s (Sheree Renee Thomas) work.

Thank you!

 I agree, she’s a wonderful editor. That is a dream market for me, too. I think they let you submit again 21 days after receiving a rejection, and she said she wants to see more of my work, so I’m counting the days until I can submit there again. 
Congratulations to you, and I hope you become a regular contributor!

I love writing.

Been working on a KYD from that prompt 'Under the Gun/Pump'. I started it out with the intent of showing a wife going through hardship to demonstrate her love for her husband. About halfway through, the husband became less than honorable and the story quickly spiraled into last-minute ditch at vengeance (that's been really fun to write).

Many things I plot out beforehand, but I do love pantsing some stories and just seeing where they end up.

If I could only get this transporter to work I'd be right there to get your autograph. I was so close to total assembly but the battery on my cordless drill died. Now I'm trying to finish the job by using a flathead screwdriver in a Philips slot, life ain't easy.

@karyenglish periodically puts out posts and advice on how to pass the slush, and we love her for it. Blogger Jarrid Cantway just collected all of her advice in one place for you to read. It’s pretty thorough and he has links to Kary’s original words. I highly recommend everyone read through this, especially if you haven't submitted your Q4 yet. It will help.
