Is it bad form to use a story that I used in the critique group here a long time ago? The story's never been published, but it's one of my favorites, and I just can't seem to get the creative juices flowing for something fresh. Well, I've written a bit, but it's not anything that's ready to be shared.  :/

It's been done before. I don't think it alters a story's chances for better or worse, so feel free to put it in :smiley:

Rev & fnord -- looking forward to reading both :afro:

Hey Ed,

Looking forward to finishing my story in time. I'm going to be hiding in my little charlie box until this is finished.

Ready to hunker down in my box for the weekend, to finish my story!!

Hey Ed,

Charlie in the Box here.
Has it happened before that your avatar and other profile descriptions just disappear. I checked today and saw that my profile was gone including some of my info, so I'm going to put it all back in.

Could this possibly be a computer glitch, or are the voices in my head responsible for my latest story, getting back at me for not telling the story the way they want it told?

Only twenty so far, Ken -- we're three entries down on this time last year. Hopefully we'll get a last minute rush.

It'll be like an eBay auction! Last day all the bids will come in.

@ Ed, I know, I get all wound up, and then I pop out of my charlie box and let it all out. LOL!!!

Nonetheless, my dark tale is near completion, Jacob's story is about to become part of this exciting writing endeavor!!

@ Delboy,  Yes, the flood gates will open on the last day. I have seen this in other contests that I've participated in!!

Cool :afro:

Thanks to a couple more entries late in the day, we finished the 23rd on a total of 22 entries, which is nine short of last year's total on that date :/

I'm writing something new, so mine will be a last minute entry.  And I still have to figure out how it's going to end....  Should be a fun week.  :bangh:

Hey Rev,

I started reading one of your stories "Of Dirt and Dust" and I'm so hooked and loving it. Looking forward to finishing it tonight. My first from you, but certainly not my last. I love the visuals bouncing around in my head while reading your dark tale!!
