Just a reminder that we have a new critique session starting on the 1st of December if anybody's interested in joining the group. Places are limited, and on a first come first served basis, so book early to avoid disappointment smiley

Bah, having one helluva time getting messages to post...

Is it possible to "sit in" on the critique group? December's a bad month between Christmas and end-of-semester activities with four kids in three different schools, but I'd love to see how it's run in advance of (hopefully) participating in January.

Yep, no problem -- I'll set you up later. Right now I have to go back to work for an hour or two, but I'll sort it out as soon as poss.

Hmm -- dunno what happened there. I changed your member group to 'Critter', so you're able to see inside the crit section. The last session is still in place here -- http://www.cafedoom.com/forum/index.php?board=63.0 so you can see what a typical session is like. I'll send you the rest of the welcome PM istructions later, when I send a set to Shoe. afro

I have a file of story ideas I've collected over the years. I a kind of todo list - about 50 pages long.

Thinking of making time to write one up as a December crit group story I saw I'd written a potential title:

This Space Left Intentionally Blank.

So what is the story? Dunno, the rest is blank. Shortest story I've written.

@Geoff--  a long time ago I read a poem (Sad to say I forgot the author) that struck me as well done.  The poem was called "The Church Is" and the entire poem was a single line: "Slated for destruction"  The power of it was great, the implications unlimited...wonderful use of minimal words...so, your story "This Space Left Intentionally Blank" as it stands ...here is my crit:

Perfect

A flash story is emerging on my screen so maybe December isn't empty from me after all. It is a madcap story and will be disembowelled by critters.

My brain pockets are empty of all but imagination moths. They eat imagination.  Cheesy I'm still waiting for word on my broken USB stick - it had ALL my new stories on it, and they were ALL grade a material  Wink

I’ll say I’m in. I’ll either look through my backlog and polish one up, or I’ll put my comp story through the rigors. hiding

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.
