    July 2013 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Tuesday, July 2, 2013
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    Dog Days of Summer

    In other words, the hottest and most sultry part of summer. Etymology lesson here. As always, can be prose, poetry, play, fiction, nonfiction.

    Instructions:
    Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn. Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete a blog post using the prompt. 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.

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

    Now that I have my rough draft done I'm almost confident that I can have it ready when it's my turn. I just have to go heat it up a little bit.

    Okay, but it might wind up doing you no good if we blitz through the list like last time

    You are #4. The chain has not started yet, and probably will begin rather late this evening. Assuming Ralph is his usual speedy self, it's still not likely you will be up before Thursday, and even then you have a two-day window

    Sunwords- I will put up my story in Thursday. So you should have yours due sometime after that. Hope that helps.

    And for those using blogger, if you haven't already, please allow name/url to leave comments.
