“KYD: The Kill Your Darlings Exercise” Master Workshop
This Online Workshop: Sunday November 21, 2021, 11:00 AM to 3:50 PM Mountain Time
Twenty-five years ago, I developed a writing exercise to help me win what was likely the largest international flash fiction contest ever held. The contest was the brainchild of Dan Hurley, famous as the Sixty Second Novelist. For one year, writers from around the world submitted their 250-word flash stories each week, and professional judges awarded prizes for first, second, and third place. 500 to 700 writers entered each week. At the end of the year, twelve professionals judged the 52 first place winners for the grand prize.
Two of my weekly first place winners placed in the Top 10. One of those took Grand Prize, earning me the title of Writer of the Year. Number One … out of some 30,000 total entries.
This is the system I developed to help me win that contest. I call it “Kill Your Darlings” in honor of my mentor, David Farland, who once said those words to me. Many of the writers I now mentor say it’s the #1 reason they obtained their first sales, made it into Best of the Year anthologies, were finalists and winners in major writing contests, and are current finalists in contests awaiting results at Dragon Con. The system works.
Four hour master workshop with lots of writing exercises, plus an optional hour at the end to read results and answer questions.
Want to shave years off your learning curve? If you take this workshop, I can teach you how.
“Wrangling your first professional short story sale is a lot like catching a fish with your bare hands. Sure, it can be done, but you’re going to need to know the secrets unless you want splash around like a fool for an embarrassingly long time.
“Moon promised me that if I put in the work he gave me, I’d reduce my time to publication. His KYD exercise has helped me move from not even sniffing a sale, to winning the Mike Resnick Memorial award and Writers of the Future.
“Moon is not just a keeper of (super) secrets. He is a keeper of promises.”–Z.T. Bright, author

“I searched through writing books and online resources to find the best information on writing marketable fiction. Nothing came close to the quality and focus of Wulf Moon’s ‘Super Secrets.’ It’s the ultimate primer on how to construct a story.” Ari Officer, TIME Magazine contributor
“I have been a member of Wulf Moon’s SUPER SECRET’s Challenge and have completed all of his workshops. They’ve been absolutely invaluable and I attribute applying them to making my first professional sale in a #1 bestselling anthology. The SUPER SECRETS help you “see” what works and what doesn’t, and armed with that knowledge, you can consciously apply those skills to make an emotional—or even award-winning—story. As a busy mom, his SUPER SECRETS also help me utilize the little time I have in a wise way. Was my writing improving before I met Wulf and took his classes? Yes. Write regularly and you will almost undoubtedly improve. But after I started applying his SUPER SECRETS, the quality of my writing has taken a sharp upward turn. You can bet I’ll be first in line to buy his book when it comes out!”–Brittany Rainsdon, Published Finalist in Writers of the Future Vol. 37, Winner in Writers of the Future Vol. 38
“I took Wulf Moon’s first Fyrelite Master Class last May: “How to Write Winning Stories That Take the Gold.” It was well organized and it came with 5 valuable handouts highlighting Moon’s Kill Your Darlings exercise and his Ping Pong Dialogue exercise, both important tools to powerful writing. Moon has a natural talent for teaching insider writing techniques that work. His SUPER SECRETS workshop & Challenge is an amazing resource for writers of all levels. I highly recommend Moon’s Masterclasses and his SUPER SECRETS workshop & Challenge! You will not be disappointed!” – Amy Wethington, Co-President, Southeastern Writers Association
“I learned SO MUCH from the SUPER SECRETS and your workshop! I listened and studied the lessons intently, and I went back over my current novel and used the techniques to strengthen every page. It’s the only book I’ve written that I’ve had full confidence in, so much so that I personally submitted it to a prestigious writing contest. In April 2021, I was notified that I was a WINNER in the Canadian Book Awards! Thank you for guiding me to where I needed to go. Without a lie, I have never felt more sure about any story I have written in my life. I feel very secure in saying that this is the best book I’ve ever written, and I firmly believe it got that way because I attended the Super Secrets Workshop. I wouldn’t hesitate to take that course again. Your Secrets have helped me take my writing to a whole new level.” Tina Griffith, Author of Canadian Book Award Winner TIL TEXT DO US PART, one of her thirteen novels and thirty children’s books
