Since we don't have a topic for this one (We miss you Dan!) I'm starting one. [Cool]

Please post all things related to Q2 here.

If you need a critique, full or partial, swaps, if you're *in* and of course how you fared!


As for me, I'm writing my first draft. I'm around 2k in. Considering today is the 15th of January, I'm ahead of the game!

Yay!

(I'm not so sure of myself) I have 0 words in, but this thread may fix that.

I'm in. I have been gone a while but I am back to writing full time. Last and only time I entered this thing I got an HM.... Man! that was a long time ago.

Let's fill up the podium this quarter!

So Dan is gone, huh? I will step up and help as much as I can, Axe.

My writing is on fire right now. I am in the zone. Goal is a story a week which has been happening. I will chose one or write one by a first deadline. As I remember these groups usually had two draft deadlines and everyone swapped crits. Quarters where we had huge groups we plot up into pods of about eight so we wouldn't get overloaded.

I am willing to take on up to eight. I can also help with discussing plots and premise. Me and a few of the old Hatrackers found this to be helpful. It solves a lot of problems before too much time is spent writing a draft that has huge holes in the plot or some other malady.

Anyone interested in this, let me know.

I am in it to win it!

If everyone is starting some scratch, I propose we do an outline summary exchange. Perhaps even have character interviews as our first exchange and then a solid first draft swap. After that final edit swaps can be arranged on a request basis with other members of the group? Just a thought.

I remember how daunting it was at times trying to offer critique on 8 stories twice per quarter, only to see that some had barely edited a few sentences.

I am up for anything though. I say lets make this group the ten per centers! HM's or up!

Can you please explain how this works. I seem to have mislaid my brain someplace.

I should have posted this last night or even the night before:

First I'm surprise there are a few here who are doing this quarter. Last quarter we only had couple, maybe three, I think.

Anyway. My story is already finished and over half way revised. I cheated though [Wink] I started this story months ago and for various reasons never finished it, it was almost done so I finished it a month ago.

It may just have some of the twists that Dave usually likes. We shall see of course.

Anybody else already started your story? I've started mine three or four times. Each time I get a little closer to an approach I like. This is a pretty ambitious story--possibly more than I have the skills to handle--but no risk, no reward, right?
