Don't give up, Diana. I feel you - I've been dealing with an allergic reaction all week, which meant tons of Benadryl, which knocked me out and upset my stomach... ugh! You can do it. Just go with what makes you happy and don't worry about the rest. And if you need to brainstorm, PM me. I'd be glad to toss ideas around with you.

Thank you! You're so sweet. I hope you're feeling better.

I finally finished a first draft of...something. I think I'm going to take a bath, give it another look and then submit. It's not my favorite thing I've ever written, but at least I didn't drop out.

Good for you!!! :) I'll bet it's better than you think. We're always hardest on ourselves. And you can say you did it! Great job.

Mine is a lame duck, comes from lack of interest from the writer, but it will be finished.  3 hours till dead line, just got up, did a read for someone and now will shower, get java and do a final push to tidy it up, just wish I had gone with my fist idea as this one is meant to put people to sleep with its lame innuendo style progress (don't give anything away, be sublime)

I'm done. I have no idea if my story is done, lol, but I am. It's submitted and hopefully without typos because I'm done poking at it.

And here I am feeling sorry for myself that I still have two scenes to write and then the whole thing to edit to try to make it fit the bloody prompts. Much respect to you. Get it done.....we all need to smash this. I am seeing too may stalwarts bomb out this round!

Sending good thoughts and prayers to which ever God or no God you prefer....
