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

I'll suggest this, because it is very hard to slave for two masters--short stories and novel at the same time. Work on your flash. You can do a flash in a day easy. Use it as a warmup excercise before going to your novel. As you get close to the end of a quarter, select one to flesh out just a bit ...

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

I'll be entering two more quarters, for sure. After that, we'll see. I want to win, but I don't want to get so hung up on winning that I miss out on other opportunities--especially now that I have the twins, because my time is even more limited these days. Same here. I plan to finish (4 in 36). Wri...

Re: Contest Questions

Well Darn It
The Q3 I planned to write was PG but did have a more sensual nature than my normal G rated stories. I hate to write it knowing it is a goner.
Grumble

Looking through my mental images...I didn't plan on mentioning anatomy.

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

I'm used to receiving my result and moving on. This time I want to see another forum user amongst the winners. The wait seems forever to me, those waiting must have no fingernails left!

Re: 4 in 36

It was looking a little iffy for me at the end of Q2. I cut it tight again, but I am still in with 2 of my 4 in 36 submitted. Now: back surgery, recovery, re-write novel, and get Q3 written in the next 3 months. wotf005
