Mine is probably going to be a last-minute entry. I'm about 300 words in, and I've had to do a lot of research on books I haven't read in a while. February is hard.

I'd be good with the D&D idea.
Be not a writer, but a Storyweaver. For that, my friend, is how you'll truly leave your mark.

I was joking as well Bea.

Though, WHO LIKES MONKEYS, I'm not joking. Have you been near monkeys? They're little shits.
@Bradley Darewood wanna play a game? I challenge to write about rogue characters every month for the next 4 months. *diabolic laughter*

Hmmmmmm I've been struggling with my MC in revisions of my WIP, who is a rogue.  I wonder if I could just write that same character into every prompt until I get him figured out :)  Might be a good exercise!

There is this guy who's not bad at drawing and has routinely crazy and cool ideas. I bet he could draw something fitting in the time I need to find a CC licensed picture. ;)

I think you should have shortened his hair just a little.  That way you could have made the scar stand out a little more.  But other than that, you nailed it.  I'm very impressed.

That's Dumbledore, but still only1/5 - no hat.

ha!  sorry, man.

i'm trying to coax this kind of graph (http://www.dataschool.io/roc-curves-and-auc-explained/) from this latest batch of ml-modeled ai data.  eep!  my brain is currently working at all kinds of right angles, so i can't draw anything that'd look any better than bradley's stuff right now.

but, yeah, a lightning bolt and i think we've got ourselves a cover!
