Had a concept I was working with that I really liked but couldn't find a good story to go along with it. Tonight while having a cup of coffee with a buddy of mine I thought of another concept that definitely can work within the parameters and have cool little story to go along with it.
 
So in summation I've got the idea down now I just have to flesh out the the story.

Not unless "toying" is a euphemism for "procrastinating".

S l o w l y  making my way through the first draft.

Although I think I'm on a faster pace than last year.  I don't thing I actually started writing until Thursday last year... and no sooner than I finished it, I scrapped it for a brand new one!

I'm thinking this poll will change daily.  I know my answer has already changed from yesterday.  Tuesday: partial outline, 3 pages written.  Wednesday: full outline, 12 pages written, wondering how to cut that down by 50%.

Just submitted.  Re-read it 5 times and found mistakes each time then just couldn't take it any more.   I'm a worse case scenerio kind of guy, kept thinking what if my internet is out Sat. night?  or power outage?  Glad to have it in but now worried I'll have a great idea to put in it tomorrow....

Good luck everybody!
