I'm keeping it open until the end of the weekend, working people can have the extra time.

Anyone else working on their story?

My story is done, I think, just needs a final read through. I'm not entirely happy with it, but I need to get used to showing people my writing. This will be the first time anyone other than close friends read anything I've written, and it feels good to finally be at that point.

Whoa thanks so much Bea... I woke up early today after barely 5h sleep, gave up after breakfast and rolled back into bed. Slept 3 more hours, dreamt of riding a T-rex, spiders, dating sims, black panthers and petting a panther cub, and lots more weird stuff. Ah lots of spiders too. now it's 2pm, I'm finally "up" and I'm super shit faced as if from a too long nap, and I now have to defrost our freezer...  ::)  Having a couple extra days will relax my day a lot.

Edit : I just posted! Thanks so much Bea for leaving it open over the weekend, it made all the difference, because I slacked till so late!
Feels amazing to be back with a half decent story I'm not ashamed of.
