Sith-I-5 only completed submissions, please. I still have unfinished pieces from ten years ago.
With Exeter, that makes three vets from the old guard. Nice to see you back! I look forward to reading your entry! Here's 1,000 points for you!
C'mon, you knew this was coming.
OK! Plot bunny bit. I should have a submission by the weekend for the Amnesia Challenge.
Getting through the amnesiac bit was hard, but my character's memory is hopefully returning, and we can start to cook on gas.
Edit: Aborting this. Amnesia too much of a crutch to narrative flow to complete in time.
28/11 Edit: Danger Will Robinson. On 5035 words, and story not completed yet. Gonna need some severe editing even if I do get this guano done on time.
29/11 Edit: If I don't make this, I'm blaming the Boards being down; drokk it.
30/11 05:23 Edit: Story complete. However, 7770 words with all the markup; 7613 after posting, and counting the posted words.
06:49 6921 words. C'boath on a bike, this is brutal.
07:32 5981 words.
09:04 4989 words. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!! [link=http://boards.theforce.net/threads/oc-gwg-amnesia-challenge-new-kids-on-the-block.50035050/]New Kids on the Block[/link].
Hey gents. Sorry I've been MIA. Lots happened in the last week or so. Son in and out of hospital, diagnosed with spinal meningitis, Thanksgiving and personal obligations, and some laziness, too. I'll be back asap.
I hope your son will be okay, meningitis is a very serious condition.
As Goodwood said, hope your son is going to be okay.
Take all the time you need, Skalen. Obviously family always comes first. We'll be here when you have the time, just like we always have been.
Hope he's doing okay. Please let us know how he's doing.
Sorry for the disappearance. An unfortunate incident involving my writing became part of a much larger personal issue, so I had to step away from the keyboard for a while, and try to remind myself that not all readers are the same, while at the same time dealing with said issue in my personal life. Today, I think I'm ready tto try to put it behind me and move forward and resume writing. I remember you guys reading my story and commenting that you enjoyed it, and reminding myself of that was an enormous help, so hopefully you'll be seeing part six of Coldiron Squadron soon!
Fehl, I am very sorry to hear about your son, and sincerely hope he recovers (at least as much as one can recover from that, I will be honest, I'm not too familiar with menengitis). You and your family have my thoughts.
It feels so good to finally dust off the writing fingers and get something up.
Mav Edit: Please make sure to read the FanFic FAQ on promoting fics.
I'll abstain this time, thanks.
Hope thread members are okay.
Between new Challenges and my own stories, got a lot on the go.
You know that moment, when you get into a groove, and you make the best part of your story yet, do you guys then just immediately look at the parts before it and immediately hate them? Because that happens to me a lot and it drives me crazy.
Yeah, this is what we should be doing to keep the thread going, now that we have re-discovered it, discussing our characters or stories.
You know that phrase about people liking the sound of their own voice?
That is mostly how I feel about stuff I have written earlier. It is what was in our hearts and minds at the time, and presumably put onto the page to the best of our ability at the time, and it is what got me to this stage where I'm now in the groove, so I value it for itself...plus, apparently I can be a funny fragger, and I tend to amuse myself when I look back on things.
Earlier writings and posts are the history of my character, and I can mine it for information to make what I am writing now, deeper and more dynamic, plus sometimes I forget details, eg. oh, Deputy the astromech is black is he? Whoops!
