I spend yesterday from 4 pm to 11 pm here.

It's incredibly relaxing but of course you need to be comfortable to be in the sauna (they have over ten different saunas) or the pool with dozens of naked people from both sexes.

Just saw the front page of today's SUN. Is it really legal for a newspaper to say "Please vote for Johnson"? What about journalism being the 4th power?

You need to borrow some of @JMack willpower.
The one he demonstrates when his wife makes cookies? ;)

I just became a Ringbearer!  :D

I have been informed that it is legally inadvisable for me to reveal how much I know about other posters here.

You could tell us how much you know about the person who informed you that it is legally inadvisable for you to reveal how much you know about other posters here.

Peat I really liked The City of Stairs and will be reading the rest of the trilogy.
I'm afraid Peat doesn't read present tense :-\
I'm not a fan of present tense either but this doesn't deter me from reading a good book. :)

Being (too) late can be something absolutely awful or something extremely lucky, depending on the circumstances. This time we want stories where something isn't happening (to somebody) as it should because somebody was late for something because of reasons. Happy, sad, science fiction, fantasy, ... write what your story needs and your mind wants.

Rules:

1. This must be prose or poetry.
2. The main character(s) must be too late for something.
3. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.
4. Poetry must be 100-750 words long.
5. One story per person or writing team (not per account).
6. You will be disqualified if you exceed the limits, full stop. That's why they're called limits.
7. Your entry can't be published somewhere else before.
8. This is a writing contest, not a "I have written something like this ten years ago" contest. So if you happen to have a story that fits one of the themes, I'd like it to have a mayor overhaul/edit. Work for it. ;)
9. Please add your story's word count and, if you have, your twitter handle.
10. Please put your story in [ spoiler ] tags to make the thread easier to handle. :) You can find them above the smileys under the B.
Bonus rule: We consider voting in a contest you're taking part in a given. Others take time and effort to read the stories - you should do the same. A small community like ours lives from reciprocity and this contest needs stories as much as votes. 

If you want so submit your story anonymously you can do so by sending it in a personal message to @xiagan.

Entry will close December 31st/January 1st, 2019 and voting will begin somewhere around the same time too.

All members are eligible to join. If you are not a member you can join here. Sign up is free and all are welcome! :)

The winner will have their piece displayed on the main Fantasy Faction website sometime in the next months.
Submitting a story counts as published. The author retains all rights to their work.

Please post your entry here.

Note: This thread is only for questions or discussing this month's writing contest. Good luck!

I finished my Miss Marple (so-so), and started The Woman Who Rides Like a Man (Song of the Lioness #3) by Tamora Pierce. My local library system has a couple of other Tamora Pierce serieses, so I thought I'd better get on and finish this one, even though it meant paying full price for the kindle version, which is against my nature. I prefer to buy hundreds of "bargains" I won't read for years, rather than spending a little extra to buy a book I will read immediately. Anyway, it's pretty short and aimed at a younger audience. I'm a third of the way through it after one evening.
I'm a big Tamora Pierce fan, so if you have some questions or are unsure about the reading order, hit me up.

I only buy Dell, so I can't help you here. ;)

My brother did the old laptop + new SSD trick too and it was incredible.

Can we have a happy theme for December?  :P
If we have less than four submissions, chances are high the December theme is the same as the November theme.  :P But yes, we'll do something (more) happy next!
