My biggest problem is deciding what sort of rogue to focus on.
Same, plus the fact that a couple of existing characters get stuck in my head when I think of the world "Rogue". Hobb's Kennit being the most vivid and interesting one who just won't go away.
I recently read the Rogues anthology and that had all sorts from different backgrounds and settings.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Good idea, will see if we can get a copy in time! :)

Hey, @xiagan, when I submit the March story, that's five. Do I get the secret decoder ring "Writing Contest Regular" title?

Argh, I see it now.

I'm counting from when I took over the contest in Dec2013, so at the moment (already counting May) you need to have five submissions in six contests to get the title.
I won't qualify until April.  :'(

Uhm, yes you do? We have 2015 already and I'm running the contest for sixteen months now. ;)

Then I'm going to burn some serious writerly metal in March! (That would be graphite, yes?)

Nice! I guess we should close the contest now, right?  ;D

Just trying to raise the bar, all. Or lower it, depending on your POV   ;D 8)

Both, perhaps? Both is good.  ;D

Got ours done relatively early this month too. Only just long enough to qualify  :o

Nope!  ;D Could've probably added something to increase the length, but I don't think it'd be worth it  :P

Already got some stiff competition. Wow, this month'll be interesting. 8)

Having a hard time deciding on whether I should do Sea-Thieves (Pirates) or stealing a heart, some such nonsense, or whatever. Perhaps a better idea will hit me as the weeks go on. Hopefully.

OK, and now @Giddler joins @Raptori and @SJBudd with another super submission. As good as some of the stories last month were, I'd stack these up against them and steal the day. And I'll be royally peeved if anyone else does fit in the bicycle. I have to have something to make mine stand out  ;) ;D
