During the interval between challenges, I'm planning on reading lots of stories in the review forum. I'm shooting for one a day. Hopefully providing useful comments.

But I also want to keep writing--to sharpen the tools. Here's my plan:

Each weekend I'm taking on the challenge of another group and seeing what I would have done. But how to pick?

I'm using a differential for each weekend. So if I'm in groups 1-10 I add the differential & that other group's challenge #1 becomes my extra writing assignment. Groups 11-20 subtract the differential. Same midnight to midnight deal. Easy.

Weekend 1 (Aug 20-22): + or - 3
Weekend 2 (Aug 27-29): + or - 5
Weekend 3 (Sep 03-05): + or - 7
Weekend 4 (Sep 10-12): + or - 9

I'll be posting to my blog when I figure out where that will reside. Just thought I'd share my masterplan for world domination...oops, wrong plan...I mean my plan to improve my writing skills.

I must say, i admire your determination. I wish I wasn't booked so solid till the end of the year, that life is coming out my ears- or I'd join you. As it is, I was lucky to get 10 hrs last weekend just for this last story
