You of all people can do it. wotf008

I've finished what will be my penultimate draft after an awesome critique from a forum member who made me realise my story wasn't as bad as I thought it was while making loads of suggestions that have improved my story. The problem is, I can't decide if my conclusion has made the story non-speculative... wotf018

Either way, I'll be in with 4 fresh stories in 36. wotf008
35: - R R R | 36: R HM R R | 37: HM ?

Probably free for critique swaps, but double-check in case I'm away.

Proud of you, Alex. And of all that set goals for themselves to help them reach their dreams. Well done!

To all that set this 4 in 36 goal and reached it, or are about to (you will make it, Brittany), I say this:

That is no small thing for an aspiring writer. And a necessary step to becoming pro. Hear that sound of heavenly choirs? Feel that new winged helm that just appeared on your head? RAISE YOUR WAR HAMMER! YOU JUST LEVELED UP!

All the beast!

Good luck to all still working on their subs.

I'm writing I'm learning and absorbing new tricks
They found their way out my 4 in 36
Results deserved for my literary bricks
But at least I accomplished 4 in 36

I've submitted one of the stories which I plan to be the opening story in a novella. (collection of historical fiction stories with magical realism element.

I'm in.

I have two stories to revise, and three more will be written by March as part of a MA creative writing project at university. This kind of structure helps me to write with the pressure of a deadline(s). Much respect to those who create without such deadlines. I need to change how I do things in the future so that I don't need this pressure to perform.
