BTW - the location of the Cottage has been set at Cambridgeshire
Which would make the hospital "Addenbrooke's" is anyone wants that, and we might as well use the local Uni as well.

morning folks. setting up to get started. thinking a trip to the cafe may be in order so i can get through with few if any interruptions. would you believe we had a power outtage last night as i slept (almost like a baby)? i'm on track though. it's 09:09 AM my time making it 15:09 the time zone we're guided by. almost 5 hours 'til. i'll report back at the eleventh hour if i haven't already subbed. coffee! i need coffee! maybe hot cocoa will do. :D

pigfender, try this free software: http://www.openoffice.org/ or, there's always scrivener.

Just emailed mine in now.

I actually completed it at about 2 in the afternoon, which is around 11 hours ago. Just decided to sit on it and read over it later before I sent it in.

Hope everyone else is progressing well.

Goodnight.

It's eight and a half hours till the deadline, I got a full thermos of tea, a half-formed scene in my head, it's no longer dark, and I'm wearing my glasses.

Let's do this!

(Apologies to any Blues Brothers movie fans.)
