    March 2013 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Monday, March 4, 2013
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    What the Leprechaun Said

    Yep, it's March. The theme is one of general St. Patrick-ness, so don't worry if you're not comfortable with writing fantasy creatures like the 'Chauns.

    Instructions:
    Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you!

    I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn.
    Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete your post. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread. If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

    Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post.

    I'll jump back into the game. It's been a while.

    But expect non-fiction, as usual.

    I do say we all subscribe to this one so Orion isn't pulling his hair out by the middle of the month

    This month should be easier, as we have 3 more days and there's no need to wait for the previous person to finish before you can start (so overachievers can bank the post). Short month + unusual prompt = pressure cooker
