    February 2014 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Monday, February 3, 2014
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    Characters Writing About Authors

    Have your character write about you, the author, their creator. You may choose any character so long as you created them, and may write in any format.

    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.

    I'm in, link is in the sig
    A Life of Erotic Fantasy
    And I Tweet...sometimes


    Arryn: I'm babysitting one of your little punch bunnies because she's too damn weak to take care of herself. It's a waste of my time.
    Elijah: Do you think it would kill you to stop being a self-centered douche?
    Arryn: It might, I'd rather not test the theory.

    Okay, we are live! At last!

    Sneaky Devil is next. And, FYI, I am about to ship out on vacation, so thread updates may lag just a tad until Monday.

    I had a day off yesterday and finished my post in advance so I can be bumped up if necessary.

    Anarchic Q, you're totally right, that was not as easy as I thought it'd be.

    Whew! Sorry everyone. Turns out my resort had no free internet access, which is astonishing considering how much it cost. I had auto-posts to cover my travel time but not much else, so now I have a blog that needs updating and a blog chain in disarray

    Anyway, our next official participant is pyrosama but since SamanthaLehane volunteered to go next, they may post at any time as well. Lady Cat is also added to the queue and istar'sgate is bumped by request.
