This has to be the most "I just have to read this" blurb EVER ;D
Excellent idea, one sentence blurbs would be an added attraction. Good idea in the future?

Absolutely!

Noooo let's not escalate, or else we'll all be writing the same thing!! X-D
Write what you feel is best. A long dialogue between two characters over beer could be better than a 10 character brawl.
Please don't feel any pressure, it's not cool.

Not a very active month this time around! Especially given that we only get 28 days this time.

Well, jmack was in the hospital, Nora only posts past the deadline and there are those who aim for last day. Otherwise, I'm ok with top 3 by default  :P

Also it's 29 days this year.

Oh. Well then there's plenty of time.  ;)

I wasn't going to enter, but I do have this one idea (or the beginnings of an idea)... for a poem:o ???
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Yeah, I know.  :o

Can anyone guess who my main character would/will be? (Keep in mind that he's from a poem originally as well. Yes, I gave you a hint: It's a he.)

Good guesses, but none of those is even close, I would say.  :)

Think more epic.
(Hehe, an epic poem in 100-500 words. Yeah, like that's going to work.  :D )

My actual first thought was someone from the Kalevala, but I have no idea really. Regardless, I vote that you should include the Jabberwock.  8)

Epic poem guy?

Either Virgil Yorke from Dark Star, or Odysseus from the Odyssey I'd wager.

And Henry, I think that my submitting once after the time limit out of 11 submissions quite forbids the use of superlatives.
