Synopsis

Kristi, Go for it. If you have an idea, jump in and do it. I started my first chapter last week, and I still have a few pages left. I know the conventional wisdom is to start out with an outline (synopsis), but I'm leaving that for last. If I recall, from an answer I got from Debi, she mentioned the...

Page One and Question

HALLEUJAH! PAGE ONE IS DONE

I lit the flame and it's getting hot. I think I'll make deadline.

Tell me, is there a list somewhere of non-fiction titles that have won Page Turner? I was just curious as to how my title fits in.

Major Question

Even though we're down to the wire, I was thinking of trying to beat the odds and write a chapter. However, it occurred to me (conventional wisdom and past experience) I just might need an outline. Must an outline of the book accompany the first chapter? Lillian Fortunate500 www.oursilverstrands.com

Page Turner Contest

Hi,

Down to the wire question. Is the Page Turner for published books or
books-in-waiting?

Re: Rights and The Challenge

I'm not sure if I missed this, so I'm going to take a chance and ask it again. :? When an EC is selected for publication, FW has first rights. Can the author publish the article elsewhere BEFORE it appears in an Anthology, or must the author wait until after it's published by FW? Lillian Fortunate 5...

First, I lift my arms in praise to God, our Creator, who freely gives us all "good gifts," including the urge to write. And, many thanks to all who sent congrats to my winning entry. As a Newbie, this is indeed a thriller! Hats off to all winners, and a big collective hug to all FWs who continue to ...

EC results -Inner Person Quarter

A hearty thanks to Jan, Debbie, and all who make Faithwriters a true mecca for writers. As a FW Newbie, I never expected to be on any list anytime soon. :shock: My love for writing, once simmering, now boils after joining FW. Grateful to be on the list.

Passing on some good advice

I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly. I periodically receive e-mails from a Writer Beware Blog. This blog seems particularly apropos to new and not so new writers. I think that describes most of us, so I'm passing it along. Lillian ----------------------------------------------------------------...

Thanks Amy,

Is there an actual Forum site for posting your hint? What's it called?

Interpreting the Challenge Ranking

I'm sure the info is in the fine print somewhere in one of the Forums, but I've not been able to find the answer. If you're among the top 40 or 15 in your level, does the number entry have an additional implication. For example: If you're in the top 15 and are listed as #10, does that indicate you a...

winning entries for Feel

:roll: Who, me? Shock and Awe. I always knew that creative writing was my weak link. Chances of making 1st, 2nd, 3rd or Highly Recommended was a distant star; perhaps top 40 or top 15 within Level 3. Alas, after four tries, nothing. Discouraged, I decided to pass up the Weekly Challenge for last wee...
