Hey there, xandria! Welcome back!

That brings us to 43 confirmed participants -- we need at least 5 people more to go ahead (although I'll happily have 50 more! :) )

For anyone who is interested, I now know the genre, basic story structure and plot elements (up to Step 4 on the Patented* Pigfender Story Development Framework, for those familiar with such things).

I've also come up with a working title (they rarely make it to the final book), created a Spotify playlist of story appropriate tracks to listen to while planning, and -- for the first time, created a rough mock cover to aid the whole inspiration process!

* - not really patented.

Piggy, you don't need to make fun of your cover... Vic-k and I can do that for you!

And I'm out of rum already (dang slow-cane!). You may need to reschedule this for a week or two later :P

Young Master Jaysen, Pangur is proffering the thesis that, if Vic-k has actually read that, he’d probably see it as piglet assuming a fake identity, i.e. The Marquis de Sade, or Belinda Balloons, the Chancellor of Stockport’s BDSM Academy. Or some other worthy inspirational literary figure of note.
Take care
