    Five man band as a theme? Like it, Drabbi. Wanna see what you do with that. :)

    Sorry for not getting a reply to you all sooner, but I think this is the first time I've even posted on the boards this year, and I don't see my activity increasing here in the foreseeable future, so...

    If you are interested in running the next round(s) of UDC, PM me (either at Fattooine or BigFatty). Experience running a challenge is a plus. Once I select someone, I'll give them the themes that were submitted to me thus far for the next round. It's their choice whether or not they want to use those or come up with ones of their own.

    Update on UDC 5:

    Fattooine has handed me the reins for the next round. I'll start it up in May, though I'm not sure whether to begin early in the month or to wait for the second half, so most of the college kids can be finished with Finals first.

    To quote Young Anakin Skywalker, "Yippee!" :D I'm looking forwards to having some new drabbles to read, and, maybe, write.

    #1 - Hooray! I'm so ready for UDC5!

    #2 - If I can put in my vote... my spring semester ends first week of May, but I'm taking classes summer semester, which begins first week of June, so the earlier we can start so that I can get into the habit of writing weekly again, the better.

    Oh, definitely give me feedback on when you want to start. My current leaning is the week of May 17, but there's room to be flexible.

    Yay! for more drabbles! Maybe I can actually finish a set this time! 8-}

    I have no preference on a start date, I'll probably get behind in August no matter what, if not sooner! :p

    Anytime is good, though I'm still working on a response to UDC4. Let's see if I can do two UDCs at once... bring it on.

    Cool.

    Any chance to get a prompt or some kind of heads-up other than trying to keep an eye on this thead? I'd hate to miss UDC5, like I did UDC4.

    If not, so be it - I'll try to be dilligent. ;)

    Sounds awesome!!

    The 17th is fine. Really, any time is. Speaking as someone whose finals are next week 8-} it wouldn't really matter when you start, since people can just catch up the first week or two. It's when you end that's something to worry about ;) But as there aren't finals interfering with this, it's all good :D

    Sure, I can probably do something. In the meantime, I'm still looking at starting right around the 17th.

    Monk
    and
    Nero Wolfe!
