Oh, you totally overestimate how many people vote!!! ;D

Thanks for your concern, but we already had 5 votes, normally we have around 11-12 people voting, so it's a very manageable number via PM

^ ;D

Ms. Scarlet, shouldn't we wait at least until the end of the month? One or two more entries might make a mess of things on your end.
I don't get this ???
People can vote in their own time, I will keep adding the votes, then publish the result at the end of the month.

And Nora, no, I haven't read all stories yet, so I'm just collecting the Voting PMs without reading them yet, hehe - you are the only one so far

I fear I can't handle stress anymore (or I have to relearn...)

This morning I've had to juggle several things at the same time and now my head hurts and I'm all upset :-\ It didn't use to be like this, before... before everything.

Anyway, I'm off to Pizza Hut with a friend and the all-you-can-eat buffet, and hope the calories allow me to go through the afternoon in a better condition ::) ;D

And also I'm annoyed at the attack on the main site and the fact that the polls here are all broken, and there's nothing I can do to fix anything >:(

Could you not try making a second poll? Or is it all polls that have gone down?
I tried. Doesn't work :( >:(

Worse comes to worse we can all vote via pm to you or xiagan. I doubt anyone would mistrust you guys with hand compiling votes until the issue can be resolved. Hope it doesn't get to that.
It seems we'll have to go with this option...
*prepares spreadsheet* :D ;D

Oh, I really liked to read it, and that's where I discovered Rebecca Levene too!

But as xia said, if it's not fun anymore, go out with a bang!

I also love that quote, and I might end up adding it to my sig!

I am notorious for both needing and ignoring my own advice.
I thought this was everybody ;D
We're all very good at giving advice to others, but crap at following our own words, and that's why we need a group of people around us basically recycling similar words/sentiments. I'm particularly good (or bad, as it is) at criticising myself ::)

So, Gem, you do have a great mind, and you need to decide whether you want to use it as a microscope that makes your problems seem huge or a telescope that sees the bigger picture and distant destinations worth sailing to 8)

Resolution: spend more time reading and less time online, at home

( >:( to self)

I started reading the stories now, but yes, the voting is messed up - it regards the poll, actually: if I do 'edit poll' I get the same error message as if we try to vote...

@Arry might be on holidays?

Orbit's ebook deal, Ancillary Justice at £1.99 on Amazon uk

Let me tell you folks, waking up to strange noises and your bed shaking due to an earthquake is quite a shocker.
Oh, I thought you'd be used to it, with all the volcanos around... *shows ignorance*

I've never been particularly comfortable writing in first person PoV and always try to avoid it, would that count...?🙊😅
Sure :)

I saw "Phantom thread" today, such a great 'character movie'!

I want to see Lady Bird too, but it only starts here in the UK next week.

Not really interested in the "Shape of water", I'm afraid...

The reviewer’s disdain for fantasy is too bad for him. Funny how he rationalizes that the film isn’t “really fantasy”, thus allowing him to think highly of it.
Yeah, I noticed that too, it's one thing that really bugs me >:(

I’m up for the poetry aid too!
I’m just more mature about it than Gemmy. doing my waving in the dark and eating the jelly beans :P
Fixed that for you ;D

Went out to buy a rucksack came back with 4 Pratchett audiobooks a GRRM omnibus, a Haynes manual for a Dehavilland Mosquito and a haircut. I don't dare do my grocery shop at the moment.
