    I’m 6 days behind and my frustration is wearing off. Given enough time, I will recover.

    I have been bested. There were a couple of instances where the site delayed me from posting on time but I persevered. School now has taken it’s toll and I admit defeat. The pen is down and any work after this will be in the spirit of the challenge but it will not BE the challenge.

    I’ll be on vacation, but I don’t want to use that as an excuse.

    I’m posting today’s and tomorrow’s stories now. Wednesday’s’ll be late.

    Sooo…. I’ve been writing for three days now, but I didn’t realize I had to click ‘Participate’ on this page every time I enter. Hrm. A casual glance would show that I’m not participating…

    But I am!

    Gotcha. I’ll follow that as well. Don’t wanna drown out submissions.

    Well . . . best is questionable. It would make it easier to scroll through but at the cost of not having every story show up in the list. So I think it’s probably up to every individual author (unless you decide a preference for your challenge). I just wanted to make sure that people understood that we were still participating- even if it didn’t look like it.

    Fair. I’m new to the site, so would that be best?

    I am continuing to participate but like Elsha, I am creating a chain of sequels to showcase the connection. I think I will only add the first of each month to the challenge itself. Or else with six people participating, you’re going to end up with 2190 stories in this challenge.

    Sure! Why not?

    Can I start when i can log onto my usual account ?

    Did I really have a typo in the challenge? Oops! Probably got a little eager with this one.

    I did this once, although I did “cheat” a little by prewriting a Ficly if I knew there was say a wedding in the future.

    Once more into the breach!

    Whaaaaaaaat. Way to throw down the gauntlet. If anyone achieves this challenge I will pay their rent for the first month of 2014.

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
