I agree!  I love doing these because they are fun and I find it helps me with my creative endeavors.  Been doing these for years.  And getting the parameters gets me to think outside my box!

Does copious amounts of alcohol and taking wild guesses at assignment while irritating family nonstop count?

This is my usual plan, lol. Although I haven’t done this contest for awhile (usually just do the short screenplay), having more than 48 hours seems a luxury

Best of luck all!

I agree....dreams are great.... often inspiration comes in a dream. Glad I'm not the only one who has that!

P.S. What's happened to your clothes Mr. Forum Emperor?

Hey Steph!

It's 1.25am here in the UK and I was going to bed at 8pm, getting up at 4-5am to see the prompts and look at me now! Looked at my winter ravaged garden this evening and went out.....cleaned and painted 2 lots of decking, strimmed and did the first summer mow of the garden because I just would not be able to look at it all weekend like that.....so coffeeeeeeeeeee!

I'll be intravenously injecting it by tomorrow afternoon!

Dang! Look at you go! I should actually be OFF the forums right now because I have 15 pages of my WIP (Miss White's Vivacious Voices!!) due today...and I definitely NEED to have them submitted before the prompts are released!

T-minus 3.5 hours!
7 pages to go!
That's 2 pages an hour!
Can't you tell the coffee has kicked in?!



Go girl! You can smash that out of the park!
The trouble with the forum is though...... it's like that scene from A Bug's Life.... "Don't look at the light!"
"I can't help it, it's so beautiful!"

P.S. Really great you're developing your wonderful R1 piece!
