Just popping in out of nowhere to join the conversation! I do not want to sound pompous or anything of the sort, but I would enjoy people reading my piece and commenting on it! I mean (to me at least), if I take the time to write something people were meant to read, I would at least like for them to speak their mind (if they want to, of course).
@Shiro Mezidoria specifically; (as I stated earlier) I do not want to be conceited in assuming you intended to read mine, but I would not mind if you did. By no means does this mean that you should feel obliged to read, however.
And I agree with the recurring themes; kind of odd how everyone is given the same prompt, ideas go all over the place, and yet there are still similarities.
If no one else minds, I was going to read all the pieces and give my criticisms-- not anything like 'I liked it' or 'That was bad'-- I mean with reasons and explanations behind my thoughts!
I agree with both of you on this. When I write and post in online I'm really looking for crituqies and comments. If people comment and give good critiques on what I right, it inspires me to fix the problems, and go read things they have done and return the favor in kind. I look forward to reading all the other entries too.
I also agree with you all. I'm slowly reading through all of the entries and loving them all. If nobody minds I'll post back with my thoughts when I've finished them all and I have a spare time to do so (damn exams and revision syphoning away my time!). From what I've read so far I have to say that anyone who gets through to the next round will fully deserve it and I'm glad I'm not judging, because that's got to be a hard thing to do smile
By the way, has anyone heard from sand? Do we need to go looking for a body?
xD That made me laugh. I'm sorry for suddenly disappearing.
With the firing and everything I had to look for a new job and such so, that has kept me a little preoccupied for the past couple of days....
By the end of the week I should have everyone that made it through, and didn't announced.
This round, because of so many people dropping or not making the deadline, only 8 people out of 20 are still in....
So, I need to rearrange how I'll be doing all this but, at least all the non-committed non-serious people got weeded out, right?
Anyways, best of luck to everyone! biggrin I'll more then likely be a ghost haunting around these forums for a couple of days. Such long, good looking stories to check out ;]
I should be focusing on one of my writing projects, but another one keeps tempting me to write on it. One of those times when the first project is in a slow stage of set-up, and the other is in the middle of an interesting series of scenes. I know the first one will get to an interesting place soon too, but that set-up...
