    November 2013 Blog Chain

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

    This month's prompt:
    Unicorn Droppings

    Yep. It won our prompt poll, so here it is. Do what you will.

    As always, your entry 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.

    Well at least there will be two people Fall blog chains are always hard, especially with NaNoWriMo getting in the way.

    Oh I bet it is. I don't participate in NaNo. I'm much too slow.

    Boy, and I thought the last few blog chains were small. Hopefully we get a few more signups, otherwise I might have to delay the thing by a bit

    Welcome back for another go-around! We're up to six, though I can't help but feel we'd be a few higher if your suggestion of "Thank eff yew asterisk kay for that" had won

    Haha definitely, I feel like that is a broader topic & would inspire a few more ideas!

    sweetwheat, are you still out there? We need you, sweetwheat, to keep our blog chain from becoming unacceptably shrimpy!

    Ha! I love your post, Orion. I think we might have been smoking the same something something when writing these posts. Mine went in a slightly different direction but I do believe my authoress would approve of the medicine.

    Aw, thanks! In my case I was smoking too much caffeine for NaNoWriMo, and by "smoking" I of course mean "injecting directly into my aorta."

    Looking forward to reading yours, since it is technically your turn next!

    Caffeine is my drug of choice as well. And I already have mine written so I'll give it to you here!

    Looking forward to reading yours, Sweetwheat. Thanks to all for the wonderful stories. It's like taking trips in other people's heads. (Is that too weird?) LOL
