Try us!  :P

I'd like to try for a podium seat, if you don't mind! The best I've done is 3rd place, and it'll be my 9th contribution!  :P

Not that I have much hope on this particular subject... I can feel everyone's mojo. It's too high!

Well, I meant something like "here comes the mighty ScarletBea, the Wizzardess of the North, ready to lay waste to all the baddies" :D

Triple LIKES for all of the above.

You may summon the TyMonster to write but you cannot make it pick up the quill ;D 

Seriously I am struggling to keep up with the Forum as RL busy, so apologies to those to whom I owe replies and good luck to all Mighty writers this month ;D

Meh. I decided to give it a try, but honestly, I don't know how well this will go. My creative process can be confusing at times.

Cuss it all. I'm scrapping all of my 800 words, changing the view point and taking the entire idea and putting into SPACE!

Much better. Also all in the Villain's PoV. Bam. And that's why I don't like posting my stuff as I go.  :P

Awwww man.. this month's theme is mouthwatering. I could even bring back Smoulder and Fox Cully.

Trouble is I have to finish my WIP and I'm writing a D&D campaign (which I started as a hobby again last month... so much fun).

I'll try. But I can't promise I'll make...
