    Find a tale or three or five to read but be warned. It is never easy to see where the plot may be going As the Story Crumbles

    Never really left. Been lurking between events since what muses usually support rping have all gone towards writing fics instead.

    These challenges are going to force me to face my old nemesis... self-editing.

    Naw, post them raw like I do. It's easier.

    Do you gauge length well when posting raw? I like to write organically also, but I have no concept of duration until I'm done. For shorter things I usually have to go back for pruning! I like the challenge of it, because it's a useful skill to have. The Halloween Attic challenge was fun for the same reason. It's just not a personal strength.

    I have no concept of length. I kinda just write and watch the word count as I go. It's why I've strung stories across prompts and even then my ending is usually rushed and my middle sags.

    Case in point: Crystal Heart - the Writing Marathon story across three RPApril Extravaganzas - is a complete wreck and Altruistic Endeavors that I wrote for Inktober took a wrong left turn somewhere and ended up with a rushed ending and a not so intended story.
