    You just broke my eyes!!!

    I finally have the time and the inclination to write, so I really want to do this.

    Sadly though, seeing LY's idea of multiple arguing narrators, I know that I have no chance against such creativity!
    Enough of the pessimism, I'm up for this! :)

    If you don't do this JNK, I'll send you a letter that has been dipped in the combination of some particularly fowl-smelling combination of Alcohol and Organic Acid. (yes, I can now fully and chemically appreciate your last short-story).

    Well, I don't have any practice with that sort of thing and it is the sort of thing that will either be super good or turn out as a weird postmodern paste that tastes kind of like medicine.

    Ha all you pessimists! Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    Still, it would be good to get this going soon before all the students go back to school.

    Right then, once and for all:

    The Druid of Lûhn <insert ever so long list of titles here> will be part of the competition as a writer.

    The more time I know what I'm writing about, the better the chance I'll be able to write anything.

    I'm definitely in as a writer! Just let me know what I need to do and when I should start writing. Also, I really like the picture idea. There was a time a while back when I had the worst case of writers block that I have ever had. A good friend of my did this exercise with me where he drew a bunch of pictures and had me write a short story for each. Not only was it fun but it got back into writing and I never looked back.

    The original plan was to start on the first of August and write a short story of no more than 5,000 based on pictures that, I believe, SJ is providing, and post the story at the end of the month.

    Have there been changes to any part of those plans?

    Yes. Turambar wants to run this one so he is responsible for providing us with the rules, start date, date to post our entry and whatever inspiration he might dream up to get our creativity flowing. I'll send him a PM that we are impatiently waiting to start and see what happens.

    This is turrible, we need to give Turambar some sturmulus to get him going again. (Comedy puns grade A, expect to see high class gags and mystic wonders in my writing)
