Thanks, Bea. :)

I'm sorry, but it's a time issue. I won't have time to post it today (mine or yours anyway? ;)). Hopefully the contest will be up in 22-24 hours.

I will finish mine tomorrow. I tried writing a comical version, but I stopped after a few hundred words as I couldn't turn it into a story. The serious one had (very slow) progress, and although I know what I want to do with it, I just stare at my screen.

Then a new idea for a Pinocchio one popped in my head, but I can't bring myself to write it as well.



Slow and steady wins the race.

Anyone still planning to submit (except Lanko)?

I plan to lock the thread tomorrow morning (UK time), if no one asks for more time.

Well it's already "day after tomorrow" for Lanko, so I'll lock it.
If you need to still add it, ask me and I will unlock it :)

Mine is in. Thanks, Bea  ;)

Ended being a more serious one, though. The funny, clumsy trolling gennie didn't get past ~600 words. Maybe I will finish it later just for the sake of it.

I had an awesome idea for this one, but since life threw curve balls at me this month, I didn't get the chance.

Whoa. Just found that illustration while browsing pinterest and sad I can't pin it to my story, as it would be a most perfect cover picture for it.
I think m3m started the trend of having pictures before the title, and while I don't generally feel like I need one, this is another exception!
