3,100 words so far.

I have a beginning, an end and some wibbly bullit points for the middle bit.

All good so far and if I can get it all sorted by January I will have time to fix my questionable comma usage before sending it off to the Master in Chief of this Endevour. Smiley

Sounds pretty much like what I have at the moment.  No matter, Xmas is coming, the goose is getting fat and he can put himself in the oven while I'm getting on with draft one!

Just wondering how everyone else is getting one. I think I'm nearly finished with my first draft (another 200-500 words and I'll be there).

I'm still working on re-doing the 1,000 or so I lost when I deleted the wrong files.  Sad

Arkwright, you mentioned a Dropbox that would be set up for submissions. Any chance this is ready? Mine will probably be good to go by the end of next week.

OK,

As we have people ready to submit, I'll get the drop box set up over the weekend.

Please pm me your email address so I can invite you to the dropbox.

Greensteam will sort out spelling and grammar, I'll comment on the story content. Don't worry, nothing I say will be cast in stone, it will be suggestions for you to think about and implement as you see fit.

Draft 1 complete. Message sent. Woot!

Now I can finally let my friends induct me into their shared Minecraft addiction without worrying about missing deadlines. Cheesy

Take this as an invitation to put something into it...

I just realised what you meant.  Arkwright shared the folder rather than inviting people to it.  I'm sure he'll sort that out as soon as he reads this thread (or the email I sent when I noticed) and then we can get on with uploading our work.

OK. I think I have straightened that out.

Sorry about the delays - I have had a pretty mad time of it recently.

If anyone hasn't been invited - pm me and make sure I have your email address.

Can you please submit your first draft, or contact me about the delay as soon as possible so we can move things forward.

The Lonely Hunter V.3 has been uploaded, mainly grammatical changes but with one or two stylistic alterations.


I'll try and keep my eyes on the dropbox a tad more in future.

OK.

First of all, sorry I have been away for a while. My life is very complex at the moment. I'm told it is self inflicted, but I can't see myself living any other way.

Now, I have a wide range of stories and they are all going in. What I have to do know is thread them all together with a couple of other stories that I am writing. This is quite an intense process and I don't have much time.

The book will go out at The Asylum, in Lincoln. I will try and get complimentary copies to all contributors as soon as possible.

I will also be issuing contracts - these are to protect your copyright of the stories you have submitted.

Please be patient with me, it is coming together, but a little later than previous years.
