He he. Yeah  but said like that it sounds funny. ‘ hanging on by the seat of your underpants’ doesn’t quite have the same ring.  Normally though yes- and specifically boys underwear if we are going to fill in the detail.

I have a question, does the scene need to be exactly like on the pictures shown or can we make changes? like the daytime, buildup of the ships, weather, etc.

I know in some cases one of the count up details is the whole point of the picture but lets say, can picture 3 be in the night or picture 2 on a les tropical island, etc.

Yes, you can change details - just be inspired by the general idea of the picture you choose.

I have a Character, maybe two. I have a setting.

I have no plot.  >:(

Try to look why you can´t find a plot, I drafted about 3 different stories this month before I felt like writing the one I posted. Don´t worry, it will work, I am looking forward to read from you.

That's cool! I only need to work on the last 500 words for mine, and maybe try to shift everything to past tense, but I also have a class friday that I need to study for and it's my only day off, so any extra time saturday will be a life saver.

Yes, having Saturday could make all the difference. Thanks, SBea!

Errgh - I'm away tomorrow and then at a wedding on Saturday - I don't think I'm going to make it. I mean, I guess I could skip the wedding but I might get in trouble for that  :P

I’ve failed to put enough words down in clever enough order to constitute a story this month, i’m Bowing out i’m afraid.  Looking forward to reading everyone else’s submissions tho!
It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.
