 :scratch:  Oh :huh:  If it's Debs, I hope it doesn't fold before it gets off the ground, or even worse - when everybody's half way there.  All her sites seem to toodle along nicely for a while, and then, splat - gone :huh: 

Maybe this one will stay the distance?

Well, with a couple of you here at least entering it, even if the official thing folded (which I hope it doesn't), you could help each other keep up to speed.

I'm trying to get a children's book done for the Saga challenge at the moment.

That's a good point, Joyce. There's no question I'll be pulling my hair out from time to time.
Sharon, you any good at hair plugs?

 :P

maybe....what color is it?
I'd prefer calico, seeing as I can't make up my mind.

We have 2 spotted Bengals, a tortie mutt-cat, a Scottish fold (silver and black) and a polydactyl brown mutt-cat. 

You may choose one or all.  :bleh:

If you shave a strip off the back of each one, then I'll get that 'Dennis Rodman' look going.   :P

UMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmm... no.  I'd love to, but I haven't got anything burning my psyche at the moment - no ripping yarns that need writing or anything.  Although I had the glimmer of an idea last night, but I think it may have already been done.

Besides, I'm still struggling with all this site building malarchy.  So I'm already stretched :/

If you want to write the novel, I can show you how to get it published professionally without money. No baloney, no scams, just work.

If I can do it, so can you. The first time was very tough, I had to do research for months, download about sixty pages or more of printed matter, study them, keep in a supply of ibuprofen and coffee...etc.

Now I know I can do it again, and much easier, since I learned a lot of lessons along the way.

Check this out, not to get you to BUY my book, but just so you'll see quality can be acheived!!!! :cool:

Thought you might be interested to see this thread that's turned up on Writer's Dock.  It looks as if Debs has joined, lurking under the name of 'Deskie', to promote her new venture - that is, if I'm reading it right.  (Signed, 'Nicky Richfield'.  I was asking the 'who' question after what I'd seen over here.)

My advice? Write your novel. Sit there at your desk and just freakin' do it! If you need the likes of Debs/Deskie ... ummm ... frankly, it ain't never gonna happen.
