I'll be brave and go first (unless someone beats me to it while I'm typing this)! Here's my initial 250 vignette from the start of the workshop: Setting Stars The portal snapped shut as Balac stepped over the bodies. Orchid-scent wafted toward him. Home.

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve popped in the thread here. Truth be told, I’ve felt a lot like a failure in being unable to keep up. Every time I looked at the thread for about six months, I’ve felt guilty. I thought at the start of the year I’d be able to hack it. But life changed. At the en...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 37

I haven't heard anything yet either AJZach and Brittany, et,al., note that no semifinalists have been announced. They hold those back briefly in case a finalist bows out or is disqualified. They will then pull one from the eight semifinalists to replace the finalist. So I’m guessing you’re one of t...
