Where's the daughditor? Surely she'd be present for your first NIAD. College is no excuse, if that's when she's galloped off to.

Uni. 1.2K mi away. Doesn't even know I'm doing it. I'll catch hell for it.

Just replace all your American "z" with "s" and put the "u" back in colour where it belongs and you'll be fine.

Even the poms send people to jail rather than gaol these days.

PS - I can say Pom coz I've been called a roo catcher all afternoon :-)


Thanks, matt. Looks like I'm all set. :?

On a not so serious note, I'm amused by some of the ethnic banter here. You'd think we were all being stirrd in a frickin' melting pot or something. ;)

Sheesh. Looks like I'll have to dip into the PTO pool again so I can get through your bit and everyone else's. 4K really? :D Must have fuel and oxy in line with your fingers in the keyboard.

Okay. I finally sent it. My daughter didn't look it over (brat), so no second eyes. I was totally out of my element on this, but enjoyed it. I watched The Blacklist the other night, so that helped. LOL.

I can't wait to see how it all comes together. :D

Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication, pigfender. :D

That's on my TBW list. Is it pretty good?

I'm homing in on the end of my chapter. Should be sliding in under the official deadline, but just barely.

Just finished my first draft. Comes in at 1.7k. So now a brief break, then a quick edit and done. :)

Liked writing this. It flowed like hot custard!

I love it. :) James Spader really makes the show. :) Some of it is crazy and over the top, but I still love it.

I'm completely lost by now. Do I have one more hour to edit, or has the deadline just passed?

In honesty… it was @6k. I cut 2k out. then cut a bit more. Then added a bit. 4K was the end point post edit.

I'm a "brain vomiter". I spent most of last night planning sub scenes. Then I put them all down. Then I make them work. I actually do the whole "walk away from it" thing I suggested. I never have problems with min word counts, and rarely with subjects. max word counts… they're PITAs.
