    FlashFiction Contest Rating Thread

    Here's my idea:

    Each week feedback is given in very much a static way, pieces are never really discussed nor probed to a great depth mostly. If we have a second thread for feedback on the pieces and discussion then it could potentially give the contest and feedback idea a boost. It means that the actual FF thread can't have any non-entrant posts.

    If this thread works this *week* then we can make it a permanent fixture of the flashfic contest. Anyone got any objections?

    You have the honors to make the thread.

    If not, I can.

    Just settle on a theme and make sure it's the one you want.

    People are probably still planning and stuff. I probably should have; no use in posting your story so soon when you've such a long time to wait for the contest to end. :catroll

    Conversely, no point hanging around when you know what you wanna write.

    New thread huh? I presumed it wasn't coming up on my sub list because of lack of activity. Forgot I was the OP.

    I say "fuck planning and just pull it out your ass" because that's what I do, and it's no sweat, but then again, I've been scoring a solid 6,5 lately, so don't listen to me

    I actually have an idea I quite like for this topic, but a combination of very severe writer's block and college is preventing me from actually writing it.

    Hopefully I'll somehow get it done before this closes... whenever.

    Why ask permission? Never chance yourself to get denied

    Didn't know another one of these flashfictions was going on. Too bad as well, because this would have been a really fun topic to delve into.... plus I actually have time now to write before school gets to be too much later on down the line.

    Arghhhhhhhh

    Sorry guys; I've been really busy lately, and haven't had much time online. :-(
