    Could you put that in the form of a prompt?

    Sounds like fun. If there's still room/time, I'd like to participate.

    If not, that's cool.

    Here's the link of the blog (it's new), just in case:

    Sure I'll add you. We have room, but it's going to be tight. Thread updates will cease Jan. 27 due to travel on my part, so if too many people take the full two days not to post there may be a hangnail into February.

    Incidentally, in_one has less than 24 hours to get that post up.

    Feb Prompt

    I like the "Second Chances". I like it so much, in fact, on the drive home from the cottage a story presented itself. When I got home I wrote. And wrote and wrote. 1500 words later, it is too long, sadly for a blog chain.
    I may clean it up and submit it to a writing contest though, so thank-you chain-bloggers!

    I'm hoping to get in my blog updates and read everybody's stuff tonight/tomorrow. Depends on when I pass out from sheer existence.

    Here is my post, the slightly high word count is caused by the caption for the video the intro and the list of all your wonderful posts so far in the chain!

    That's terrific! Have you considered posting it in SYW? Of course, you only want to do that if you are looking for critiques, but it is a great way to share and get some help with polishing before you sub to a contest. *shrugs shoulders*

    These Mean Streets can bring our chain to a close, after which the droplings will get a second shot.

    Since I got off to a late start, I'll need the two days to complete mine. I'll have it up by 7:00 pm Pacific Time Wednesday.

    Not a problem. As long as it's up by Friday the 27th, you're okay. What with being the last link in the chain and all.

    Hey - I REALLY want to try to comment on this, but none of the id options would allow me. It doesn't even recognize my livejournal id for some reason. Just wanted to let you know I did make an attempt.

    I had the same problem; the only option available was to reply to an existing comment.

    Just a reminder as the chain winds down: do try to comment on everyone, even if your turn has already come and gone!
