Okay BigWords, you've talked me into it. I just can resist a man who begs on Twitter.

I normally write in 3rd person and my blog is: http://carolsrandomness.blogpsot.com

This is going to be very interesting!

Thus far the entrants seem to be as follows, though as there are less players we may just run two weeks - which also gives a little more room for late entries and new people to sign up. Everyone should have their private messages by now as well...

WEEK ONE

BigWords http://bigwords88.wordpress.com/ (Omni)
Jamiekswriter http://jamiekswriter.livejournal.com/ (3rd)
Ralph Pines http://ralfast.wordpress.com (2nd)

WEEK TWO

Regan Leigh http://www.reganleigh.com/ (Omni)
Lady Cat http://carolsrandomness.blogpsot.com (1st)
Orion mk3 http://nonexistentbooks.wordpress.com/ (1st)

You may begin cursing and gnashing your teeth at the challenge... NOW.

Know what - toss me aboard again.

Link is the first one in sig. I write urban fantasy heavily dosed with adventure. Always up for a challenge. Last time it was horror, this time it would be....?

We're writing outside of our usual POV.

And it is MUCH harder than I imagined it would be, FWIW.

I usually write YA, romance and historical fiction. This should be a good challenge.

*cough* POV, not genre this month. What's your usual POV?

(I'll try and wing it so that the actual genre part comes back into play next month)

I barely know what month it is. Don't worry, I'm sure the next chain will be better handled seeing as I am not going to be mismanaging it.

Everyone who has managed to complete something despite the absence of... - Well, any real guiding hand, I suppose - gets cookies and kudos points.
