RL is kicking my butt, still.

Maybe you should go with Robbie's solution - Beer Drunk

Actually, what finally worked for me was finding a sunny bench and an hour of quiet.

If you want someone to bounce ideas off of, or to complain to, I'm here ... Hello

Very Happy Beer

Not a bad idea!! Though I guess coffee will have to do, since night driving on my little scooter is *not* improved by drink.... Banana

Heh. It was alcohol what broke my block, actually. Guiness 2 double Jack n' Cokes and all of a sudden the hobbit started talking! Very Happy

Shouldn't have spun 'round in my desk chair after the second one, though. Bad move. Very bad move. Doh!

Need help/a nudge/dancing vegetation SML? We're here!

I have (almost) finished Very Happy
I've got it written - and almost fully typed (yeah...it's only 400 words - but....it's me!)

would anyone be able to give it a little look over for me?

You have a little gas-saving scooter! That is so cool ... Hub just bought a motorcycle under the aegis of saving gas (yes, I fell for that one ...).

You scoot, Girl!

You have no idea how much I'd love to use that as an opening line for a fic.

Er, were we supposed to trade these to beta before posting?

[Am posting this on NeumeIndil's behalf. --viv]
On or before October 1st, please email your rough drafts to Neume, with your email address included in the text of the story. In return, you will receive a draft from a fellow participant for beta reading/editing. You will then have 1 week to read and give suggestions on that story, and to return it to its author. The author will then have 1 week from the time he or she receives the story to make any changes or additions and post it as a challenge response. Then, the accolades will begin!

(So final stories will be posted to the archive here on or before 15 October 2008.)


So that's where we are in the process. Pip, do you want to forgo the beta exchange? I don't suppose it'd bother anybody. (We're at odd numbers anyway, I think.)

Yes, officially we were supposed to mail our entries to Neu for random beta assignment.

So, no one look at Pip's yet!! Pip, go get it - quick!! (just kidding, really, no big deal)

How about this: whomever ends up as Beta for PipIo's story can just work on/from the version that's posted. We'll skip the whole emailing thing but it'll still get a going over by a beta to keep us cool w/ site rules. ("They're more like guidelines anyway...")

Oddness or evenness of numbers doesn't really matter w/ the way I roll things. I just grab either a pair of D10 or a pair of D6 and match up #s. So participants 1, 2, and 3 are say Nancy, Viv and Pip. I'd roll 2 D4, and if 1 and 2 come up together, then Nancy does beta for Viv. Then if 3 and 1 come up together, Pip would do beta for Nancy's. Make sense?

Those of you who are done, remember to put your email address in the story (header or footer is good) and feel free to send it off to my gmail whenever you like. I'll send stories to betas on Tuesday(ish) and you'll have a week (or less if you want) to get them gone over and sent back to the author. I also see no reason you couldn't beta, send, and re-beta if the author would like and you as a beta are willing. Stories go up on 10/15 or after they've been seen to by a beta, whichever comes first.

Eira and Viv: I emailed you with questions. Still waiting on 1 reply as of midnight EST. Beta assignments will be sent tomorrow if all goes well. Smile

Congrats, ladies, you've done it again!
