    Well, here's some (weird) ideas. :p

    • endangered species
    • bio-engineering
    • sparring (verbal, physical, whatevs)
    • house on fire (lit. or met.)
    • what frelling kind of mongrel is that?
    • it's not pink in infrared vision...

    I haven't followed any of the mini-challenges and don't really intend to...so I hope that doesn't hurt my chances in the overall Dear Diary challenge! :D

    MsLanna: LOL! [face_rofl]

    No worries Goodwood, the mini challenges are optional but not mandatory

    I like sparring and
    • what frelling kind of mongrel is that? [face_laugh]
    Verbal sparring or what frelling kind of mongrel is that? would make for good comedy :p

    I'm not doing the mini challenges either. I had planned on doing them, but I've got so far into the story that it would just disrupt the flow of it if I tried them. And some mini challenge themes might just come up by default, anyway.

    That's pretty much my attitude anyway.

    I mean, c'mon, I'm writing the diary of a combat pilot fighting a galactic war—he's not exactly going to have time to acknowledge a romance, let alone allow it to become "poisoned" by something or someone. On the other hand, if a mini-challenge involved coping with death, well that's right up that diary's alley, and I can guarantee that even though it's already been addressed, it will be faced again. After all, my take on war is that if you ever get to a point where you are used to and even comfortable with the idea of your friends and comrades getting killed around you (never mind the deaths of your enemies, as that's to be expected to a certain degree), you've basically no business remaining on active duty, much less wearing the uniform.

    It does not hurt your story for the challenge. That would defeat the whole point of the challenge. Post twice a month or more for the the whole year. Mini challenges are optional.

    I don't enforce mini challenges. Heck I don't do them unless they fit in my story ;)

    They're there to help get the creativity juices flowing and nothing more.

    My apologies, I didn't mean the above post to come across as a rant. It's just that sometimes I can get a bit...passionate...about the stories I write. Call it authorial eccentricity... ;)

    Heh, happy to please.
    Ran this for a while and those challenges tend to get repetitive. :p
    Plus I am a weirdo and like weirdo things to stretch the limits of a story.

    I'd take the last two and add Mandos. [face_mischief]
    ... I know you're trying to disguise Mird, Walon, but really, have you looked at it without the infrared on... [face_beatup]

    Lanna, du alte Spaßnase.

    * pokes old friend

    You are NOT a weirdo, but a funny and brilliant person. To have you on skype or even "live" in my living-room is always hilarious and makes me smiley. Plus you have a wicket humour that I enjoy pretty much.

    * must try to get you visiting in Berlin before husband moves in permanently again and is not held back by matters in the Netherlands

    Anyway, I am not surprised that you would go for a story containing Mandos.

    * wonders if she finds a Mando in your place when she ever manages to visit you

    mothballs with actual tiny wings. And maybe teeth. And rabies.

    Barring that: toast.

    I think wargs are vicious enough without adding rabies to the mix, and my poor hobbit has had enough on her plate without her dog becoming rabid. (Just joking...)

    Warm weather, flowers or graduation from school. Isn't May the most popular month for marriages?

    Can it also be getting a new lease on life? (I don't think my character is ready for a baby).

    Just making sure I was still in the running. I've been unwell for the past month or so.
