    Okay BigWords, you've talked me into it. I just can resist a man who begs on Twitter.

    I normally write in 3rd person and my blog is: http://carolsrandomness.blogpsot.com

    This is going to be very interesting!

    Thus far the entrants seem to be as follows, though as there are less players we may just run two weeks - which also gives a little more room for late entries and new people to sign up. Everyone should have their private messages by now as well...

    WEEK ONE

    BigWords http://bigwords88.wordpress.com/ (Omni)
    Jamiekswriter http://jamiekswriter.livejournal.com/ (3rd)
    Ralph Pines http://ralfast.wordpress.com (2nd)

    WEEK TWO

    Regan Leigh http://www.reganleigh.com/ (Omni)
    Lady Cat http://carolsrandomness.blogpsot.com (1st)
    Orion mk3 http://nonexistentbooks.wordpress.com/ (1st)

    You may begin cursing and gnashing your teeth at the challenge... NOW.
    The blog, which may not be updated regularly enough. -- I'm linking to other AW blogs here. -- There's some nonsense here when I can be bothered.
    Don't hold your breath...

    The British Comics Database is growing. Or mutating. I'm not quite sure which, yet.

    Know what - toss me aboard again.

    Link is the first one in sig. I write urban fantasy heavily dosed with adventure. Always up for a challenge. Last time it was horror, this time it would be....?

    We're writing outside of our usual POV.

    And it is MUCH harder than I imagined it would be, FWIW.

    I usually write YA, romance and historical fiction. This should be a good challenge.

    *cough* POV, not genre this month. What's your usual POV?

    (I'll try and wing it so that the actual genre part comes back into play next month)

    I have failed miserably. Editing in links to the other participants in my post as soon as I have read the stories.

    Your target is to have it up by the 26th.

    What week are we on right now again? I have my prompt but am not sure when it needs to be done.
    Excerpts from Nonexistent Books - my literary blog and daily writing exercise all rolled up into one! Short sections of books that don't (and perhaps shouldn't) exist. Like what you see? Purchase a print or ebook version!

    I barely know what month it is. Don't worry, I'm sure the next chain will be better handled seeing as I am not going to be mismanaging it.

    Everyone who has managed to complete something despite the absence of... - Well, any real guiding hand, I suppose - gets cookies and kudos points.

    My usual POV is 3rd person. I don't often write in the first, but I'll give it a shot. Any genre? Stick with usual? Or I pick?

    Btw - I have to totally bail. I knew this month would be hard (part of why I nagged Gary to take over ) but... yeah. The pressure to do too much in too little time has eaten at me. Sorry!
