Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

I think I could get my story finished by then. It's not much, though. (I'm also a bit distracted by real life at the moment - mostly due to politics and an unexpected boost to my love life )

That's why it was unexpected.

Are you even allowed to be a moderator on a Star Trek internet forum if you're in a relationship!?

Shall we expect your resignation?

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

Well, I really did get a rather weird stare as a response when I mentioned that - saying, "OMG, she's crazy".

A lot of mods on here do have partners, though, so I don't have to resign.

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

First, I hit writer's block and then I procrstinated too much. I tried to make up for the latter but the story won't be finished in time for the deadline. Sorry.

I don't think there's a precedent for a contest without any participants so I'm not sure what we should do. Maybe a new theme for May chosen by you, jespah? Or do you have an idea? I'm open for (serious) suggestions by everyone else, too.

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

Huh - maybe a consensus challenge, e. g. something that the more active current participants agree on? Which would be you, me, Angry Fanboy and IHaventGotaLife, I am thinking.

I want to be fair, and at the same time give you a topic you want to work on.

Would that work?

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

That's a good idea. I don't have any particular idea in mind right now and I probably should stay bit back because I'm also the mod and don't want to influence such things. So I'm happy with whatever you folks come up with.

As far as active participants go, Cobalt Frost should probably be mentioned, too.

Aw shucks.

I actually got a very last minute idea for the "obsession" challenge, so if that was to be extended into May, I wouldn't mind. But, I'm cool if another topic is put forth.

Of course, I can't guarantee I'd get an entry in; freelancing is a fickle business...

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

Another idea is to possibly allow older stories, if they fit the prompt, so long as they haven't been posted here before (although they could have been posted elsewhere online). What does everyone think of that?

Have you PM'ed the others with your first plan? That might get their attention.
