Quiet here, all of a sudden. Happens every year at around this time -- two and a bit weeks left until the comp deadline and everybody's off hammering away at their opus afro

My friend and I burst into hysterics when we saw it.  We were upstairs, and the landing went around the corner of a bedroom and we were like "Hmm, the third bedroom must be behind this one" so we walked around the corner and there, in a sort-of room that was actually part of the corridor (a doorway but no door), was a toilet, then in the doorway next to it, the third bedroom.  And the whole place was decorated with dark green carpet and this vile cream and green floral spongy wallpaper.  It was impressive, in its own way haha

Or not, in my case.  Cry  I've hit the word limit and am nowhere near the end. In fact I'm nowhere near the end of the middle... I figured 5k was pushing it a bit for me these days. Combined with the fact that this is amongst the busiest periods of work I've had in years (alas, I don't get paid overtime, I just get a warm feeling and a racing heartbeat) I just don't see me making it. I do have an old story that might fit, but I have a horrible feeling that one might be too long as well. I'll check later.

The joys of being verbose...

Kill those darlings! haha  Wink I'm hoping to get mine sorted in time, but I have a horrid feeling the extra info I'm putting in will feel inserted, as I'm struggling to foreshadow it convincingly.  HMMM HMMM and DOUBLE HMMM.

Okay... starting to panic.  Haven't settled on a story or an idea or anything yet, let alone written it.

I WILL write at least 1k today on a potential story for the contest.  I will NOT waste the entire day playing games and hopping from website to website.

Heh. I know what you mean, Rev. Trouble is, it would be like a massacre I'd be slaughtering so many of them to hit the word count.

I'm moving on to plan B. I have a tale from the vaults that I recall being quite fond of, I just need to reread it and see if it passes muster. I suspect it'll need some work...

I've no plot, no setting, characters are all wrong, fictive dream is a nightmare and the beginning is at the end, but I've finished it! Guess I'll have to start again.

Sounds like me. I've thought about submitting an older story that I ran through the crit group a long time ago (with a different ending). Don't know if I'll do it though. Feels a bit like cheating.

I'd much rather sub something brand new, but...
