Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

I had problems subbing for two quarters until I read the instructions. A change in management or web hosts made it where everyone had to enter their info again as if it was the first time. I too tried the forgot my password but it didn't help. Since then everything works as it should.

I'm looking forward to reading the 500 word stories. This should be interesting.

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

Oh, my mistake. I thought we had the option of sending it to you for a private viewing. Regardless of how it works out I wrote a story that stayed within your guidelines (except for posting on a public forum) which I choose not to do. I thank you for helping me learn and grow into the writer I will ...

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

I guess what's complicating things from my end is writing on a computer not connected to the internet. I put the story on a thumb drive and take it to my other computer so I can email it away.

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

Count me in.
An idea has been with me for a while but I thought it was magic-based.
Day before yesterday the true direction for the story made itself known.

I plan to set a time frame to write until it's finished in one sitting.

I'm guilty of submitting a story where my mc wakes. I sent another one in about a brain transplant which is another no-no.

1. Got that one already and it is my comfy hideaway. One laptop is so dedicated to writing it's never connected to the internet. The other one only comes on when researching a topic for a story, or checking emails. 2. Routine. That's a hard one there. I have so many irons in the fire I seem to be bu...
