    Ishy, are we allowed to run SpellCheck after the ten minutes are up? My stuff becomes illegible without it. Really. *begs*

    I have added my humble ( :p ) contribution to Beyond as well. It's a little thing with Wes and Hobbie.

    Spell-check is advised against. This is a challenge of raw elements. If you want to submit it to the archive or expand, spell-check then.

    I didn't use SpellCheck. :p But I type things like thmnis instead of this. (And, FYI, I just fixed those without spellcheck.)

    Yeah, hence we have people exchanging shoiklers for hubs as darkness crapped across the galaxy.

    Yeah, I caught a few spelling errors in mine after I looked through it in the thread. Oh well, it's the mistakes and imperfections that give our submissions their beauty :p

    Okay, hello folks. Ten minute challenge attempted.

    I believe it went into [link=http://boards.theforce.net/The_Saga/b10476/20873837/?19]The Saga[/link], though still confused at the way you bounce between boards.

    Cheers

    Oooh, great idea Ishtar! I wanna try.

    Okay, it is now 4:13 pm. I'm gonna give myself five minutes to think before I start writing. Once it's posted, I put the link here.

    So COOL!

    ~Jaya~


    Okay, I tried, I really did, but my creative juices have run away and I can't come up with anything now. I hate that. I really do. Maybe I'll try this again tomorrow or next week.

    Oh well.

    Are these going to continue, or were they more of a one-time deal? Because if the challenge is going to continue, might I suggest having a weekly/biweekly/whatever... theme, so to speak? A word to focus our writing on, a word to use as a springing board?

    This is ongoing for as long as people want to do it. I will update the first post and title.

    THIS WEEK, IN HONOR OF THE SCORCHING HEAT OF AUGUST, WE PROPOSE TO WRITE EXPERIENCES ABOUT THE REBEL OR IMPERIAL EXPERIENCE ON HOTH.

    A new theme will be posted on next saturday.

    Snow in August. :oops:
    Cruel.
    I live in the Arm-pit of the South, I'm going to have to crawl into my freezer with my laptop to get in the "write" frame of mind.

    Thanks for the advice oqidaun. I would do that, but I'm out of town. Is there a time limit, Ish?

    EDIT - Let me rephrase. Do we have to have a challenge done before the next one is up, or are they open-ended.

    And thanks. :)

    Is there a time limit, Ish?

    I have to assume its still ten minutes, as this is still the "10-Minute Challenge" thread. By the way, I enjoyed your original submission.

    oqidaun - I know what you mean, though luckily the temperature was only around 85 today. It was a welcome break from the sweltering death furnace of late...

    I'll tackle this in about an hour or so. Glad to know this challenge is continuing, it's a blast.

    edit: alright, I posted mine in Saga.

    My brain almost froze. I think you'll have to disqualify me--I went 10.5 minutes.
    I love these things. Mine's in the Saga Thread with everyone else's, which are a heck of a lot better!
