First draft, done and out!

Phew.

Chance to breathe...

Okay, time to get busy with the next one.

If anyone didn't get an email with my story that is open to critting it, let me know and I'll send a copy your way.

Later.

I'm looking for some people to crit "Pod Soldier". It's the story that WriterDan and Snapper critiqued for me last quarter that I didn't get polished up in time. It is now much improved--thanks Dan and Snapper! It's pretty short--about 3K words.

Also, next week I can read a few people's stories too.

Whoever wants a fresh read (I haven't seen any of the stories yet this quarter), send your story my way.

Chris

I finally finished mine. Alas it is well over the word limit, I wont be sending it out to anyone in this group, as I wont be sending it to WOTF. My thanks to those who supported my effort to finish this story with encourageing remarks and apox on Snapper for suggesting the confounding theme.

Good luck everybody.

And Snapper, that was just a joke.

Hey!

I woke up with these red welts everywhere. Where did they come from?
Now I'm curious. How did my shred it into a thousand pieces and burn it suggestion turn into a 17000+ idea?

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been around! I realize that I owe several of you critiques and I'm totally behind (like ridiculously behind). I'm just posting to apologize. I'm really sorry. I thought I would have the energy to do this (I just finished chemo a few weeks ago) but I'm still sick off and on and having a tough time getting everything caught up from my illness. The sky is clearing, but I'm so behind I'm pretty sure I won't be able to catch up.

Those that critterd my story "Blood Kiss" just poke me when you need a story looked at. I'll make time for it.

Again, I'm really sorry.

Seven days and counting. Time for minor tweaks and finishing touches. Hope everyone is coming up ready. After missing last quarter I'm nearly beside myself with excitement about this one. Good luck to everyone.

I just sent mine out.

Thanks to everyone who helped turn a sow's ear into a silk purse that still suspiciously smells like bacon.

Good Luck to all!

pixydust, I don't think you have to apologize with an excuse like that. I just hope the chemo did the job, so you don't ever have to experience it again.

All laud and honor to Snapper, ruler of the writing universe and all-knowing consort of the holy muse! I bow to your prescience.

<<Several hours of chanting and prostrating ensue, after which I come to my senses and realize just where I am.>>

So, I ended up cutting just over 5k words from my first draft. lol! When I went back and realized that last night (well, actually this morning at about 4am) I nearly laughed out loud and woke everyone else in the house. Granted, I did add about 3k of that back during work on the 2nd and 3rd drafts, but man...now this thing sings.

My story is off!

Just wanted to thank everyone that sent me a crit. The responses I got were pivotal in making my entry this quarter into something really good. And I even finished it three-and-a-half hours earlier than I normally do. Ha, ha! Stress-be-gone!

Good luck to everyone. Hope to see you all next quarter.
