Been trying to ask about the new forum (Rob's) that got mentioned a bit earlier, but the system keeps telling me my message has too few characters. Is this enough?

Try that link, Lyn. I hope it works. :)

PS: I guess it doesn't, but you could type it in.

@noizchild - What are you working on now?

I'm tossing around the idea of writing on nano again but not sure i'm up to the challenge.

I'm trying to start a short story for the latest Glimmer Train contest - I've got about 10 days left :shock: As always, it's the first few sentences that drive me crazy - once I get those down solid, I should be okay. But I'm also facing all the fall yard and house work prepping for snow. Blech.

Break a pencil. Which category were you planning to enter?

Ten days should be plenty for a short story if you have an idea to work on that you like.
You only need 300, or 1000, words depending on the category.

I'm going for the New Writer award. And yes, there's plenty of time left, but I want to give myself as much time as possible to build up my anxieties...
