Emerlas nods, "The east it is"
Only a week to go.....
How's everybody doing?
Finally finished my first draft, had 1 proofread, and then I'm going to jump back in to fix things and add more detail to the good elements. If anything came from this where I stand it is a few good ideas as comedic sub elements.
Erm... first draft of the introduction/opening part (800 words for now). It's not easy to find the time having just arrived in Uni (so much to do!).
I've made as much progress as I expected to.
Working on iiit!
To be honest, I've spent wayyy to much time looking for research and inspiration. This one is going to be pretty labored, I am afraid. For some reason, I've really got some difficulty getting into a writing mindset that fits the story. Mostly, I have to resorts to some secret weapons. Like Callas.
I've got it though. I know where I want to take my story. 1800 words down in two sessions, I think I need some 2500 more to finish it. And the weekend for proofreading and revisions. I'm getting there
I've been fighting with this one too Tur. The first draft needed a lot of work but it's coming together better now.
The problem is once I get an idea for a story based on the pictures I can't leave it behind and use a different idea without starting over with new pics. That kinda sucks if the story doesn't turn out good.
No comedy in mine this time though...it's all drama!
lol - the pics are all pretty serious I suppose. Nothing for it but to dish out the drama....
ohhhhhh the drama!
sorry!! i have been really busy in RL nursing my mom after her operation and keeping up with study, so yeah . but uhm... I'll pm you haha
Uhm, I do not have the time to finish my story (we started this a bit late for me) but if the judges need help judging and if there's no problem with that, then I would love to help!
I will post what I have written, as well as the general concept and material for it.
I'm going to cut it close, classes have been hitting me hard lately. I still think that I can get it on time though I just need to revise my draft and add some still.
awesome you posted, Yuan! I'll have to read this tomorrow
... and that goes for SJ's as well
It's great that you managed to get your story posted LY. I lmao over the chicken bone!
I still have to read your stuff SJ, I probably will right now actually though to take a break from school and other jazz.
I understand, fair enough....I'm been drowning in study lately, hope your mum is okay
I'm okay with you helping Druid, be great having another judge if it is okay with Bel and Tur
yeahhh that'd be nice druid! I'll pm you as well
I am a bit slow due to trying to complete house reno's and various other things. I have half finished my effort and can submit that. Or if you can give me 48 hours I will finish it off quick smart. Sorry for the lackluster effort.....
I'm OK with anybody needing an extension but this is Tur's show so we'll have to see what he says.
