Oh, yes. Lol. I typed year instead of month. Stupid me.
is that 20,000 characters including spaces or not?
and a fixed word count would be a hell of a lot more helpful than a 'character count'...
I use word. When posting Lost Kingdom it gave me an error message saying "Exceeds 20,000 character limit". Basically, if it fits in a single post its fine, if it bleeds into a second its too long. Consider it a challenge in creative editing...
Seriously, I just barely went over 3500 words for the story so I think you can post up to that.
my entry, which i had to trim despite Word saying it was under 20K words...
Damn it anyway.
I have the perfect idea for this month's challenge. Not only would it make a good story, but it would plug an annoying hole in canon.
But the well of inspiration has run dry once again.
Looks like I'll have to pass on this one.
Month ain't over yet! (I hope - I'm still trying to write mine!)
I'd hate like hell for Calhoun to win. Um, by default, I mean. Surely someone has a saga in them?
oh, i dunno... happened to me once already...March 2006 IIRC...
would be nice to win legitimately, though
Hey, Mistral! You don't actually specify a closing date. How long have I got?
Monday is the 29th and I'm on PST-you got till midnight Tuesday the 30-then I post the poll(assuming there are enough entries).
Cool. I've got the plot worked out, I just need to write the damn thing!
Personally, I'd love to see that happen again.
Don't anybody be in a hurry!
I'm working on a short-story, but I'm not sure if it meets the "saga" qualifications. If I get it finished in time, I may submit it.
thanks for the vote of confidence in my writing abilities...
I have plenty of confidence in your ability-I've read and enjoyed most every single one of them.
I had a few ideas rattling around in my head but unfortunately I'm spending all my time trying to finish off the last episode of Vesta (so frustrated at the moment I am considering just writing "And then the ship blew up and they all died. THE END") so I just won't have the opportunity.
It was a good challenge idea though, Mistral.
Have you thought about ending Vesta with a saga?
ha ha- nice try!!
Your early entry intimidated us all.
It's not your writing ability that worries me.
If you want an honest assessment of what worries me, PM me some time.
