Anne, just give us a quick sell to tell us what the genre is (and a very, very rough version of the story). Mine is not so simple as I laid out, but I'm trying to show the kind of story it is, more than what the entire story is about. you have to have a bottom line (distill all the side stories out for the moment and) give it to us.

Given the rewrite "ruling" I'll pull Masq out since it's likely to have genre objections and substitute the second half of Falcon until NaNo, when Falcon goes on the shelf for a month and I start a draft of Dead Reckoning.
If none of you remember Falcon when the Query was up (tee-hee, it's fantasy.
Hey guys/gals, sorry to do bail on you, but I think I am going to withdraw my name as of now. Its nothing personal with anyone, I just don't think I'll have the time to commit to do this project justice for everyone. I will still be around the forum and keeping my eyes on all your progress, so you better be writing.

Violent and sexual content

This is the same synopsis that I posted earlier, I just added the goals and decide on a working name. Leslie
Genre:Young Adult Fantasy Adventure
Tentative Title: Social Endeavors
Brief Synopsis: Grace, Liz and David have been friends since grade school. Grace and David grew up knowing that they are different, shape-shifters. Heck everyone is in their families but Liz is just a normal girl. One day, Liz zaps her computer and she realizes she can start fires, control fire, play with fire. She turns to her friends who also reveal their secrets to her. The next day Liz and her Mom disappear. But not entirely, Liz can communicate with Grace and David via text messages relayed through Facebook, Twitter and other sites. While she is not sure exactly where she is or how she got there, she has a pretty good idea of how to help David and Grace figure it out.
Goal: 1/2 chapter each week. [OK, its a stretch goal....8) but I have been doing about 1 chapter each month so not so far off.]
