I wrote a thing. I once again failed to reach 1500, and the content will probably cause you all sorts of problems. Sowwy.

Done and submitted! Rog, you had issues receiving my emails yesterday, so let me know if you've actually gotten it? Fingers crossed man.

Done - and only four minutes from deadline! Which of course means I already hate it, for it not being as polished as I'd have liked it to be... *sigh*

Well done to everyone else who's submitted! I'm dying to see what the whole story is now...

Oh hell. I did not complete my chapter. I am sitting here thinking I have 6 more hours to finish and just now realized whereever you guys are you are, well, 6 hours behind me.

Sorry. I couldnt just bang out a scene. I required a bit of research on my setting first.

Done, submitted and hopefully received. I think I do this event just so I have an excuse to read the forum. I laugh my Yankee ass off reading your comments. I cannot wait to read what we have created. I forced my son into taking my place at work and took the day off. :D Now to clean up the ale bottles, wipe up the Jalapeno Cheetos crumbs, and wait for the results.

Reading these posts I have come to the only logical conclusion that the novel is really about martian space bunnies being promiscuous in a seedy space bar, with the intent to colonise the moon.

I have the exact same impression, only I thought they were colonising Mars.

Close. They were commuting to Mars on Space Trains (and now we know about their torture following the train wreck due to hjordisa’s spoiler).

Wait... are you sure the torture was post wreck? I thought the wreck was the later event...

Well if this is about space bunnies doing what bunnies do best in order to colonise the moon or Mars and getting tortured because they caused the wreck of a space train … I really have no idea how my chapter can possibly fit in … unless I missed the point that it’s all the drug filled fantasy of a non-literally agent … :shock:

Just don't take Pete figuratively and you'll be ok.

No, the non-literally literary agent was transported into the manuscript where this all takes place.
