Could it be Western though? Or post Apocalyptic? Or Wendigos? That sounds a bit too specific.
What am I known to like anyway?

Is it Coffee? I stopped drinking the stuff some months ago.

Please let it not be rock climbing! xD

Nora, you'll LOVE March's subject ;D
(I think!)

I believe that when I see it hehe unless it flesh eating zombie theme.

I'd be happy with Magic, Gods, Cyborgs at the moment. But since I've been groaning for ages to have a Dragon month, I'm wondering if it'll be Dragons? Haha, I almost hope not, I've got no more ideas for that!  ;D
You had the Mighty Beasts theme to write about dragons. I don't think they'll be back soon. ;)

Yes, and it's exactly what I used it for.
So now I'm doubly excited about this new topic! Can it come out early? It's 2am and I want to go to bed but I'm too curious to rest easy!  :P

Well, I had to throw my hands up in the face of quantitative dactylic hexametre. It's really hard to pull off in English (at least for a non-native).
I spent a few hours trying to decipher it. Managed to only write two and a half lines and even they weren't correct.  ;D

So, I'm sitting this one out. But if I ever have the time, I think I'll try to write the poem just for fun (and to show that I'm not poetically challenged).  ;)
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.

Well I got something in but it was rushed and I wish i had more time to polish it up a bit. Oh well. I did a poem figuring if a battle like mine happened someone would write poetry about it ::)

About 20 hours left... I'll probably lock the submission tomorrow morning UK time :)

Whew! 20 more hours! Nice to know that!
Slow and steady wins the race.

Just posted it in case I'm not able to do it later. I actually liked where I was going, I wished I could've started it sooner to better polish it.

Note: I'll do the Voting thread hopefully this evening.
I've been working late and going out to dinner with colleagues, so arrive at home exhausted...
