Re: DUCKS ON PARADE

Nice start there JB! I laughed my way through it. The only correction I saw was 'who's' to 'whose' but I'm sure you would find that in the re-write (which I think you said you're going to do).

Since we didn't find Puck, I'm guessing there's more to come?

Re: NEW FF - There was a crow on the fence today, carrying eye glasses in his beak

well, here is my take on this prompt...needs work so be gentle!! It took me a bit to realize just who Demetrius was... practically to the point of introducing the young girl again. I'm not sure if that was your intent or not (?) but I might be slow on the draw. If you wanted me to know who he was a...

Re: NEW FF - There was a crow on the fence today, carrying eye glasses in his beak

There is an ending, and I added it over at Facebook. Goes like this.... Sitting in my car, reluctant to leave the area, I knew I’d never see Adelphia alive again. Had she been senselessly abducted, killed by an enemy, or did she simply wander off to the bottom of the river? Maybe she was swept up i...

You should be able to... there should be a New Topic button at the top left side of the list of topics and under the heading Hanging Out.

Do you see that? If you can't see it then I need to fix something... lol!

Re: NEW FF - There was a crow on the fence today, carrying eye glasses in his beak

Hey Timber! I like the way this story progresses. Of course, I'm left wondering quite a bit about the woman. There's definitely a mystery potential here... some intrigue perhaps. Where is the woman from, why did she so easily say the only option is to disappear when the world disappears, and where d...

Re: Jill's WtMaWriMo Thread

This one turned out a little odd. I was trying to be cleaver and I'm not sure it really worked. It's fantasy and I wrote it as if one person lives in the past trying to speak to another living in the future. Someone else took it as a dead person speaking to the living. Anyway... it's not bad... just...
