I'm out this month because of looming exams.
The rest of you better man up and produce something
Unsurprisingly, I'm stumped. I've got nothing.
I've been thinking, honest, but I can't magic anything out of my brain.
Nananana I already have a few hundred words. I wanted to go sci fi again but my pointy fingers made me write about my hometown. Not finished yet.
Look, you cannot wait for the muse. It is not going to strike you like an angry fist of god. The muse is a shit concept. Just write. As you write so shall you feel the muse. Even if you write a scant 500 words of crap it will have you getting your hand in.
Yes! I've been waiting all my life for a story about Northampton.
Worst collective member ever
Ah but i had a good idea for teh first one, an idea... I don't even know where to start with this topic.
Ok. I'll stop thinking about it on the bus and tomorrow I will sit down with tea and a notebook and give ten minutes to it. If it doesn't set me on fire I'll wait for the next one.
I like it when you're mean to me... tough love
Like I said, I'm an 'ideas person'
It's not meant to be easy shifty! Force yourself to write something and put it up however awful you think it is.
In fact, if you enter something I'll put up something really short & personal I wrote for a girl, hows that for a deal?
remember that as a collective we take a very loose interpretation of the theme. A Homeland makes for a broad field.
well, it appears that everyone had a skip month this month
Including me. I propose we roll over to next month and have it freeform as 'a homeland' produced no joy from anyone, at all.
If this is not objected to then we shall just go 'any writingz accepted for this month'? Given that the theme of last month produced SFA from any of us writers?
Sorry, been working my arse off (as in 6/7 days of 12 hrs+) and just haven't had the time. Will try to get something done this month.
Can I play? I've got a idea for a short story about a Homeland...
Right, finished exams yesterday so will try and produce something this month.
PM me or Belushi an email address then you can be sent an invite to teh blog.
deadline tomorrow. I've something that I'll edit and fiddle at before midnight 25th. Come on you slack bastards. I've accepted far more invites than I've seen contributors
Maybe we should restore the old deadlines... After all there's not much point giving people extra time to read the entries if there are only 1 or 2. Not gonna make it this month either, had an exhibition on Sunday and have been back on robots since then.
well, I've stuck something up, so there.
anyone else who fancies it, and there are loads of registered contributers, knock one yourself out
ploughing a lonely furrow here
What the dealio?
I can't register. Can't get on Googlemail. Will keep trying.
a hotmail account should allow you brer.
I've been fallow, recently, bereft of time or inspiration. I know you strike the muse she don't strike you etc and craft maketh art. I'll maybe try some haiku- they always get me in the mood for a short story
I got in. I have posted.
Bumpety. Go, people, I have posted something.
I enjoyed reading it, although my only crit is that I think it might suffer some editing well. I am a total Stalin about brevity though, personal taste and that.
Longest thing I ever wrote. Short one next time, maybe about factory work or something.
LOL write what you feel dude, I always make crit cos I appreciate the same- we don't have to take it on board but sometimes it is good to hear ennit? Sharpens the the tools- I tell you what since we are discussing brevity do you fancy a haiku-off? three haiku on a subject of your choice. It'll spur me to writing at least and haiku is fun
Gwan, it'll liven up my boring weekend!
Alright. 3 haiku on 3 different paintings. Haiku titles same as said paintings, so we know. Just the 5/7/5 rule, no seasonal words or tying lines 1 & 2 neatly with 3, necessarily. I'll post em here this time tomorrow.
As for crit, it's nice. Welcome. Hardly ever had any, just "no thanks" or "yes, will publish". Or MySpace people putting "Good job, man!" and not a word about what might make it better.
woah, a task! I shall see what I can do in the morn
Me too. I have a 4 1/2 hr car journey tomorrow. But tonight - I'm getting Peroni'd.
