Mood: Wyatt, I am rolling.

Is that your page? How cool, stunt kite flying? I love people who are individuals, and not a product of some jacked-up environment where if you aren't a carbon copy you aren't accepted :).

I think since I'll be jobless I may look into this, I want to write all day every day.




I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.

There's mine.... I miss the little halo I had over my head last year (pout). Guess I'll have to get another halo this year!

Time-wise, I have no business doing this this year, but that's kinda the point, right? I'll probably sign up again.

Yup, that's my page. And the comments about being an individual I shall take as the most wonderful of compliments. :)

I don't appear to be able to add anyone as a buddy yet, though. ETA - Yes I can. It just helps to be logged in. :winktongue:

I really want to try this but I haven't even hit my 50,000 goal on my monthly goals yet, and I have to do that work first for money. What to do...

Laurie, try it.

If you don't 'win' and all you manage is 2,000 words of a novel, that's 2k more than you had before.

I guess i am being extremely hard on myself lately, If I don't finish something I start like this with my writing, I feel like I am failing.

I swear the pressure on me is just unreal. I am walking this really fine tightrope with this light at the end that is my family together. So if I let up at all I feel like I'm giving up or I'm going to lose them. I wish I could just write the stuff i truly enjoy doing and not have to worry about the money. but I am incredibly grateful there is a way to earn some money doing this. I guess it is good training for discipline in this if nothing else.

I've been asking about it. Been thinking about it. Dreamed about trying it and had nightmares about actually giving it a try.

Guess I better get signed up and see what happens. I've waited a year for this time to come.

Write a story centered around the fishing you have been doing lately. The details will be fresh in your mind.
