@jespah,
godhellup you.

I could be less interested (you know me) but wish you forward.

Carry on smart.

You can do it, you are doing it. Go, Jes...

Heh, thanks. I'm writing dystopic sci fi.


You picked the right topic for speed writing.

Better to spend a month thinking about dystopic sci fi, than to spend a year thinking about a dystopic future world.

Get in and out in 4-5 weeks. Smile

@Rockhead,
Pretty much. Actually, I want to hit 50k and then leave it for a while, then edit, so it doesn't end up just being a spew o' words.

Actually, I need to find out if posting it online anywhere will tank any chance I have of getting it published.

@jespah,
That makes sense, though after it's all over (years may go by) I/we are still interested.

I wonder if there are short story contests. I suppose there are hundreds if not thousands of contests - I'm thinking of Johnboy, raconteur; also of EdgarB, and our poet, Jorge. Short stories seem to be attracting new interest after years of dullardness, it's the way of it. Jespah, of course. But I'm forgetting people, don't be offended.
