Just finished my first draft. Needs a lot of polish but I'm mostly happy with the story.

How is everybody else getting on?

A million half-formed ideas and a lot of research, but nothing's gotten off the ground yet... I'll get something written and in, but right now I've got a big fat nothing.

*high five* to you though!

You'll get there, you did every other round and nailed it :)

Cheers, maybe only got there as I only came up with one solid(ish) idea. Possibly should have spent longer in the ideas phase. My reader people seem to like it (for the most part) though and they tend to be honest. Lots of shifting words about the page for me now, never the most fun part :)

Ha. That's some good research in preparation at least. 

Interesting that we all seem to have different approaches so far.

I'm pretty much ready to submit - might just leave for one more polish up in the morning. Unusually I came up with 2 ideas pretty quickly. The first I thought was an idea/genre a few others might do too, so went for the less obvious one.

I spent last night reading about craters and an idea slowly started to form from that.  I'm sitting down now to finally churn out a first draft, and then hopefully use tomorrow to revise.  I feel behind but last round I didn't even get started til Sunday so hopefully I'm doing ok haha.

Good work DBA. You've got time to write the second idea too :p
Pretty much in the same position as me, I'm doing a little polish today and then submitting. 
I never used to be this ahead of deadlines at school...

Good research Adreens. Great stuff if you're ahead of yourself last round :)

Just finished my first draft. I'm envious of people who are pretty well done - I'm looking at you Angelus and DBA :)

I'm off to grab a few hours of sleep before I dig into revision and polishing. Whee!

Just about to have my last read (hopefully) before submitting.
