With tongues of silk and many futures dancing across our fingertips... what could go wrong?

Thanks, Moon!

A silk tongue is easier to tie.

@wehlingfl Or to convert the tongue into a tie, as in a cravat. But would such an act be too gruesome for WotF?

Science Fiction must conjure the magic of awe.

Here’s an encouraging podcast by my publisher, Mark Leslie Lefebvre, I believe you’ll enjoy. I talk about Writers of the Future, and how I built this thread to help aspiring writers after I won. Here’s the topics covered:

In their conversation Mark and Moon talk about:

  • How Wulf Moon might not have been the name that he was born with and how the name “Moon” which he has been called most of his life came from his Ojibwa grandmother
  • Moonbeam Road, a local road his father named after him when he was growing up
  • Not having a father who was supportive of his writing, and even having to run away from home when he was younger
  • Finding an important positive voice as a youngster in a teacher
  • The additional lengths this one teacher went to support and encourage Moon in his writing
  • Winning the Scholastic Art and Writing Award at the age of 15, among so many other awards that this teacher helped him find
  • Getting beat up so often in high school that the only thing he could do was look down as he walked in the hallways – but how he found his power in writing
  • The importance of finding a way to be who you are and to not allow others to repress you from that
  • Starting up Wulf Moon’s Super Secrets Writing Workshop right after winning Writers of the Future – and offering all this support to other writers for free
  • The repeated authors who have gone through Moon’s teachings and then ended up winning Writers of the Future
  • The Wulf Pack Writers group that Moon manages
  • Following the concept of “how can I help you with what I know”
  • How writers don’t understand proper Manuscript Format
  • The high ranking sales that HOW TO WRITE A HOWLING GOOD STORY has hit since its release in November 2023
  • Moon’s concept of Heart’s Desire as the most important principle in a story
  • Caring that happens in the heart of the reader, which can create the Reader/Hero bond
  • Getting to a point in his life that was so low that he took risks and was burning bridges behind him and not writing for 10 years
  • Realizing that he couldn’t be happy and couldn’t be fulfilled not being a writer
  • Moon’s experience meeting Dean Wesley Smith at the Nebula Awards in Eugene Oregon
  • The importance of having both the fundamentals of writing and the belief in yourself
  • The mantra “belief determines reality” that Moon instructs his students to write down
  • The dedication in Moon’s HOW TO WRITE A HOWLING GOOD STORY
  • Meeting other people “like me” at writer conferences, etc and the incredible value that can bring
  • Advice Moon would offer to newer writers
  • And more…

After the interview, Mark reflects on the importance of not denying who you are and not denying the things that bring you pleasure. He also reflects on the concept of finding your people, your Tribe, and the positive impact we can have on one another if we just take the time to listen, to reach out, to others.

 Greetings! I’m back from LTUE 42, and had a wonderful time teaching masterclasses, speaking on panels, and sharing my interactive Back to the Future presentation on internal character arc with attendees. Joni couldn’t make it this time <sniff> but I enjoyed some great moments with John Goodwin at dinner and on the WotF panel with him and other winners. So nice!

The founder of LTUE, Dave Doering, sat in on one of my presentations for the first time<gulp, can you say being reviewed> and afterwards said he loved what I’m sharing with his writers and said he hopes I’ll make LTUE my permanent home, and hopes I’ll come back for years and years to come. That certainly warmed my heart. It’s a great seminar filled with 1200 serious readers, writers, and gamers, and I love being with these beautiful people.

Many Wulf Pack Writers from my Super Secrets workshop were there as well, as seven of them made it into the LTUE benefit anthology with their stories! What a fantastic time we had together at that signing, and then at the mass LTUE signing later on. I confess I felt a glow of pride seeing several that had never been published before joining this Super Secrets workshop now displaying multiple books on their tables for sale, many of these anthologies from challenges I had assigned to the Wulf Pack!

Studying the principles of writing and making smart application of them does indeed bring rewards, and I wish them all continued success.

Now to help YOU with your success … with another KYD Monday writing prompt! (I know, I know, it’s Tuesday, but I’m still catching up from being gone two weeks to Superstars and LTUE.)

Here you go!

Fading from reality

Go forth and conquer!
