Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]

There's been some very useful commentary so far and I reckon by the time this is over I'll have learned a massive amount about my tale, about writing in general, and about what people look for, get moved by, enjoy, and are scared by in a story. It's like a year's worth of learning and feedback compressed into a fortnight.

Just the job, Gromit!

What he said (I'm not feeling particularly articulate).

This is an excellent experience. I hope to finish reading sometime tomorrow, and to get my own votes/thoughts posted shortly thereafter.

Everyone involved has done an incredible job, although I'd like to punch those whose stories are SO well-written that they make me feel like a total hack right in the face.

Y'hear that, you talented bastards?! IN. THE. FACE.
