Ah, 'tis the first time I have featured up here alongside my ever so erudite sister-in-law.

Have a great week.

Thanks. Will do.

Re: Winners for the DIGITAL DETOX Challenge

There you go, first EC in three years! That said, I did take a break from FW but it's good to be writing fiction again. During this period, I did some research for an MA and have even had a number of articles published in academic journals. A very different style of writing required but thoroughly e...

Re: Winners for OUTGOING

Thanks guys. Haven't entered in ages so it's particularly pleased to be ranked.

In the middle of some pretty intense studies right now so not sure when I'll get to enter next. But here's hoping ...

Well done to the others. :coolsign

Many thanks to the 23 (and counting) people who left Gold Boxes on my Quo Vadis entry. It's been a while since I have had quite so many comments on one of my stories. Much appreciated. I was secretly pleased, mind, that the judges 'got' the allusion to the original novel. Otherwise it could have ser...

You know when you have one of those stories and you think it's just about as good as it's ever going to get? That was this week's Descartes and the Dinosaur . Many thanks to the judges and to those kind commentators who showered me with gold boxes even when there wasn't any hinting. Serving as a mis...

There is great pride in our house at the accomplishment of our son Daniel. Not only is he making great strides in his English, he has become highly adept in his grasp of Portuguese. Just last weekend he took part in one of our training seminars here in Mozambique, giving a 20 minute talk entirely in...

I suppose that every region has its own quirks and peculiarities when it comes to pronunciation. I hail from the North of Ireland where we have the tendency to pronounce film as if it has two syllables, namely fil-um . We also struggle somewhat with that delectable combination, th as parodied in my ...

Many thanks to the judges for making sense of my deliberately convoluted science fiction. Even I felt sorry for the editor in my story. Guess you did too. And a special mention to Carol Slider whose Segue really rocks. If you haven't read it yet, you've missed a treat. And special congrats to Lollie...

Re: #10--More about writing "on topic"

As I mentioned two weeks ago, I’ll be using the Writing Challenge Judging Criteria as a basis for the next set of lessons. I just want to pop by and say that I think it's excellent that you're taking people through the Judging Criteria. It's all too easy for people to write a story that they and th...

It's Gregory's turn in the "bridesmaid" (or man) position. Not another eleventh place!!! One more week to try for that elusive top ten placing. But, hey, I've had a lot of fun this quarter. I notice that we have four men in the top fifteen. Good to see the guys making a come-back. Gregory PS I don'...

I think it's safe to say that much of my writing is out of the box. I share Jan's disdain for mouse stories this week (although there are some good ones out there) and I agree that it's hard when judging to look favorably at a story when you've just finished reading its twin (or triplet or quad or q...

Hmph! I'm still searching for my first EC this quarter and I have come close SO many times. Eek , but there aren't too many weeks left! A special mention to our son, Daniel, who is ever so close to crawling out of Beginners. It's been a joy to see his writing improve over the months. Finally for th...

First off, let me say that I don't honestly think that this is best place for this discussion to be posted. There have been similar threads over at Writing Challenge - General Discussion and I think it would have been better to post there. Otherwise I fear that you run the risk of cluttering up this...
