This is becoming a cliché, but I haven't started it yet. In fact, I haven't even decided which of the three stories generated I will use. Maybe I should just keep rerolling and rerolling  ::)

Forget what I've just said. A quick "what if" and a random song I didn't even intended to listen and now I know exactly what I'm gonna write about!
Ah, the sudden kiss of the muse!

Thanks! I originally meant for it to be 500 words. Turns out, once again, that it's harder to write less than more. Came in at 2100 before merciless cutting, perhaps due to the inclusion of so many elements.

Anyway, I look forward to being judged ;)

Mine's supposed to be Epic Fantasy but has turned into a self narrating self loving Pirate Captain sleeping with a man/woman with two heads.

I don't know why.

Thumbs up.

I will likely write mine later this week, now that I've temporarily got some breathing room. Soon!

Sorry none from me this month. Heating has packed up and off to stay with my daughter but will be trying to finish reading last months and vote in time.

I had planned to be writing my story right now, but then Windows 10 happened.  >:(

It's just a non-working mess at the moment, not the story but the Windows. I might not have enough time to write later today or tomorrow, but we'll see.  :(
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.

i'm trying!  i just got freed up last night after having been in hardcore-left-brain-ville for a month.  i gotta get them creative juices flowin' again.

most likely, i'll slam out something terrible.  which makes a little sad since it's one of my favorite topics so far.

I mean I have a story but its terrible and not really finished and absent of an ending. So I can enter that if you like. But what's the point honestly? :P

working on my story today!  i plan on finishing it up this evening.

with as much non-creative work i've been up to lately, it's rough getting the prose-motor to turn over, but it's starting to thrum! 

even still, i doubt if this month's story will be as polished as anything i've written in a while, but damn it feels good to be writing again.
