Thanks a bunch, I'll send it over. wotf007
For the offer, I meant whatever crit anyone might need right now. Whether for Q2 or the upcoming Q3.

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

Finished the first draft for my Q4 story. Should have it cleaned up in a few days. My goal is to submit by the end of the week. If results for Q2 don't come out before then that'll mean I'll have 3 stories pending. Exciting! Anyone willing to swap stories? wotf008 I'll swap with you, though it'll b...

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

If someone submits their Q4 this coming week, they might even have three in queue. I'm starting to twitch, though it's like a murmur right now. Think it was Beth Powers that wrote earlier in this thread that she had had responses for previous Q2s come back through end of July. So we could still be i...

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

I'm in for Q3. Just sent it in, a fresh one.

I've been absent from the forum all of June (focusing on edits on my novel) and missed out on the awesome flash piece assignment, but it sounds like it helped.
I'll be sure to jump in on that next time!

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

Can some of the necessary information be sprinkled through out the rest of the story to allow the beginning to be sleeker? Just a thought. Good Luck! That's just it. The stuff I'm debating isn't necessary to the development of the plot but it is to the character and setting and since the setting ch...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

Good luck on fleshing it out. You've still got a little more than a month.
I'm trying to tighten the beginning of mine. It's too long, but I'm having difficulty choosing what parts to trim off in order to not lose the story's essence and light humor.

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

I'm starting to wonder if I'd do better to simply aim at novels instead of short fiction. They're what I really want to write anyway. They're just... really hard for me to retain my momentum on. If you treat every chapter like a short story, it's easier to keep the momentum. That's one of the thing...
