Crit question: We have one week to do the crits, and then the next week is for edits and discussion? Is that correct?

Yep, although there was some discussion on doing away with the discussion week and having an extra week to get the crits done instead. I'll go with what the majority want to do, but I think it's generally a good idea to try and get all the crits done in the first week, as it adds some impetus to the whole thing.

Alrighty. My opinion on that is that I like doing the crits in one week. If I had too much time, I'd probably just procrastinate and waste a week. But that's just me.

Right then -- no session in May, but is there any interest in running a session during June? I haven't been able to give much time to the cafe lately due to work commitments, and I can't see it getting better any time soon, but there's nothing stopping the rest of you carrying on as normal, if you're able. afro

So who is likely to be up for it in June? I ask because we have another member interested in joining the group. smiley

Hoping to have something finished for the After Death antho before May finishes up. If I do, I'm in for June.

Anyone else trying for this one?

I've been writing something for just about every anthology on duotrope.  grin They're not all submitted, but it's good practice.

Hi, I'm in for June!

I'm the new kid in class. My name's Chad. I've been a radio journalist for about ten years and an unpublished dark fiction noodler since about third grade. I hope to earn a sheaf of rejection letters by the end of this year. I also hope the social pressure of this group will help increase my output, and I'm looking forward to reading and critting other critters' work!

Catch up with you all soon,
Chad

Chad, the new kid has to bring the snacks for the rest of the group.

Can we have a change from brain fritters please?

No and yes. I bought an amazon local certificate for 2 hours of computer repair from 280 PC. I then came to find out that 280 PC is a side business run by a Homewood Policeman. I had to drop it off with him at the station because he doesn't have a storefront. I thought that was kind of odd, but I went through with it because it was paid for and I wanted my computer fixed. He left me a message Thursday saying it was done, but I've called him a bunch of times since and he never picks up or returns my call. I miss my computer. I wrote a short story using the memo pad on my phone.
