Okay, Ed.  I know I asked if I could just audit the class, but after going over the info you PM'd me I want course credit!  There still room?

I have a story about online gaming/gamers that's given me nothing but grief (it's killed and corpse-camped me repeatedly). The problem is I wanted the language to be authentic, as it's a first-person narrative. But that means lots of acronyms and leetspeak, which I worry makes it impenetrable to the great unwashed masses who actually have lives and don't spend all day smelting ore and smiting orcs.  Could definitely use some outside opinions at this point, and I would love to return the favor.

Yeah, crit away :afro: Now you're in the group you can join in whenever you want to.

Ah, my story, which is freaking me out as it unveils, won't be ready in time. Count me in for January.

Uh my gud... sure. I mean, I have kind of a major move coming up early next year. As for my own lack-luster editing skills, well... this may be a good opportunity to hone my eye. That particular deficiency had hindered me up on more than occasion in the pro markets-- which isn't to imply that I intend to bog the group down with a bunch of my own writing so much, as paying particularly close attention.

Oops. Thought I'd replied but evidently I hadn't. Sorry - won't be in, probably for the foreseeable future. Trying to work out what to do next and currently thrashing around in several different directions.

No new stories here, but I'll try and look in and do some crits.

I'm out. I start butchering editing the novel on the first.

Will make time for a few crits, though. :afro:

I think, Sebastian, there for I am.

I have a story ready to go.  So I'm in, although I might be posting it late in the evening since we're off to the in-laws to have their Christmas that day.

Doubt I'll have a story ready. I'm feeling a bit rusty though, so I'd like to try for a critique or two if a session get's rolling.

It's not looking like it's going to happen this time around. My new year is going to be very hectic, so I reckon I'll be hard pushed to do anything towards it anyway. Nevermind -- there's always February :afro:

I could always put my CD contest entry in. We haven't heard from fnord, and he usually has something. There's still hope!
