There are some wonderful stories coming out for this.Well done all. I wanted to try this, it is such a great theme and have started about four different efforts, but they are just rubbish so far and time creeping on.
There's still time!
I haven't even started writing my rubbish.  ;D
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.

Hey, would anybody be up for a sneak reading of my short story for this month? Normally I wouldn't offer this, but I'm a little bit worried about a particular story issue and I'd really like a second opinion before I post.

PM me, R. I'll read today in between sessions of snow shoveling.

You can PM me as well, I can read it on the train ride to work tomorrow.

Finally finished my story. Still need to shrink it a little before posting. Hopefully the submission thread stays open long enough.  :)

I feel that my story came out quite silly (though I really don't know whether it is a good silly or a bad silly).  ::)

Indeed. Except for Fang-Gorillas. Those are quite serious.

Why the sad face? Some people really like serious, and they might vote for you! Being serious is not a handicap this month :)

Anyone working on a story and hoping to submit at the last minute?
@Raptori? others?
(we already got AAV, he usually turns the lights out ;))

Let me know, or I'll lock the entries tomorrow morning (UK time).
