@Lanko... I'm waiting ;D

Ah... some things got in the way so I won't be able to finish it today, so I guess that's it  :-\

End of day 2 here - bit too much. I'll close the thread in the morning, regardless...

Aweee Lanko. I think we should officially change the dates of the contest each month to "Entry will close whenever Lanko posts his entry and voting will begin somewhere around the same time too" then she'll have to keep it open! It's been open two months so s couple of extra days isn't too bad ;)

But then the contest of January would still be open in December  ::)

Of course, I would totally be down for it, writing 12 stories in the last 12 days.... psh, no problem!

Well, that said... suddenly the words came. I even managed to find a way to fit a leprechaun, a golden goose and a dinosaur in this paranormal romance tale, and no, it's not a threesome (damn I should have actually thought this earlier).

Hm, today is sunday, maybe Bea should just take the day off and relax, only worrying about things like deadlines on depressive days like Monday mornings... just saying  ::)

Worked out for me.  ;D
Did some edits to my quickie story, and feel much better about it.
Thanks, @Lanko!

So no one ever told me if my story premise was inappropriate enough to warrant a warning

Well, it's the 4th already and... it isn't done. I'll just have to do better next month.

I never look at the stories before the thread is locked, so I've only just realised we've got a "choose your own path" story!
Yay @Carter  ;D

Well, the theme was "Story Generator" so I thought it would be an appropriate style to attempt this time.
