It's been so quiet I had to comment somewhere. The word lurch is the prompt.

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

Just finished reading George R. R. Martin's quintology GOT. It's part of my learning curve, studying wotf017 you know. Interesting concept keeping the fans waiting for the conclusion of the story.

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

My mother was an avid reader. Every morning she would read the paper while holding me in her lap. First she taught me letters and that led to words.

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

I'm reading GOT for the first time, all five volumes. George R.R. Martin has taken me down a path ofs enlightenment.

I'm in with a fresh story that I subbed with minimal editing. Not saying its great or anything but I can't believe the way it came out.
This whole idea of writing in the moment is way beyond cool. I'm loving every minute of it .
