Horribly, I managed to completely forget to write my chapter. Grovelling, horrified apologies to Rog and all the other chapter writers. Hiding from Covid-19, in lockdown for the last three weeks, has robbed me of my brain.

After all the work Roberta has put into seducing her way to the top, I just hope she's not killed off by some spoilsport in a later chapter.

Now that’s a way to start one’s day. :lol:


Hilarious! :D
I hope you’re feeling all right now.
I wonder if we had to write the same chapter?
There wasn’t much about the Apocalypse in mine, it was mostly about the White House staff and security!

Who is Roberta?
Did she work in security at the White House?
Was she involved in an Apocalypse?
I can hardly wait to find out what was really going on!

Just want to send out huge thank you to Rog because without him this would never happen, and its been the best day of lockdown so far. So thank you Rog and you and yours stay safe.

I see that Pigfender is offline at the moment.
What do you think he’s up to? :|

I’d like to second that! Rog is amazing!

Writing about the White House during an apocalypse helped me forget about events in the real dystopian world.
Keep safe and healthy, everyone!

I’m good now. My daughter thinks I have lost my mind, but that’s normal for this household. Excited to see what we all put together. And it sounds like we may have had the same chapter. Nothing apocalyptic in my brief. But I did learn there are a lot of rooms in the White House and they’re not willing to share just what kind of security systems they have installed. :D
