Not a single story yet...

Do I need to punt the deadline to the 28th to give you slackers the weekend?

Oh wait.  I actually won't be entering.

But I may just paste my story hereabouts.

You are not off it.

I refuse to win one by being the only entry.

Probably wouldn't hurt. by ana (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue Jan 22, 2008 at 12:21:48 PM EST
There's always somebody whining for an extension.

Would you please amend the story? Deadline for Monday sound good?

Done. Happy now?

I'm never happy.

Thanks, though.

not slacking ... by Kellnerin (2.00 / 0) #6 Tue Jan 22, 2008 at 02:21:41 PM EST
I've been diligently banging my head against this theme almost since you announced it. That said, an extra few days to make it less crap is appreciated, and also gives the current MFC poll some time to run its course.

"Honey, it's your turn."

He can't help but grimace. "This one's a real stinker." At the changing table, he opens up the box of wipes, changes his mind, and starts the tub. "Oh, man," he says as he opens up the diaper. "I told you not to give it all those simiies. There's a pile of mixed metaphor in here."

"Well, I'm not the one that started with the excessive in media res approach. And if you'd give it some linear structure--"

"Yeah, yeah." He was tired of her wining about this. In disgust, he crumples the baby, and throws it out with the bath water.

you got me by Kellnerin (2.00 / 0) #20 Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 03:08:09 PM EST
The reason I'm not done yet is that I keep unraveling what I've got so far. If Pascal is verboten, call me Penelope.

Well, the other reason is that, until about 2 o'clock this morning, I didn't have the foggiest notion where it was really going. Today, I have more of an idea, but now I'm just plain foggy from being up for two hours in the middle of the night. Not that I wrote anything in the middle of the night, of course, though if I'd have known how sludgy my brain would be today, I would have.

Hm. by toxicfur (2.00 / 0) #8 Tue Jan 22, 2008 at 04:25:34 PM EST
Couple of extra days, with a writing chat, means I might be able to pull something together. Probably not, but maybe. I certainly wouldn't get anything written by Friday, though.

How about this? by 2 plus 3 equals 5 (4.00 / 2) #15 Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 10:49:08 AM EST
Write only 100 words.

How long can that take? And don't start quoting Pascal.

Please. by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #10 Tue Jan 22, 2008 at 10:49:00 PM EST
Also, please arrange for a timely bolt of inspiration to strike me. I have one scene in my head, but no plot, characters or resolution to go with it.

Inspiration, on tap. by 2 plus 3 equals 5 (4.00 / 2) #12 Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 10:41:10 AM EST
Someone walks in on the scene, holding a knife. They want to know  where the documents are, and they want to know now.

or

The woman slips a packet of poison into the coat pocket of the other person. They will accidently infect themselves the next time they reach in for a tissue to wipe their nose.

or

As they part ways, he realizes his wallet is gone.

or

The car, unbeknownst to him, is stolen. When he drives away, she calls the police to report that she saw it.

or

He feels only a pinprick, and dismisses it. She smiles as his eyes lose focus and he falls to the floor. When he wakes up, he is in a hut in Rwanda during the genocide.

or

...

Oh good by Scrymarch (2.00 / 0) #11 Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 04:27:53 AM EST
Now I don't have to say I needed it, just look archly look in the direction of those that did. Extension. Indeed. Hmph.

sorry for dropping the ball by 256 (2.00 / 0) #17 Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 12:11:12 PM EST

and i think my opinion regarding the extension will become clear.

competition by 2 plus 3 equals 5 (2.00 / 0) #18 Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 01:45:50 PM EST
For completeness and my OCD, I'd prefer to have it on 256.org. In your absence, however, notafurry created an upload site.

So, do we have competing WFCs, and someone can win on each site? Do we have stories uploaded on both site, but subtly different, and then see how that changes the voting?

ah, my mistake by 256 (4.00 / 1) #19 Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 02:55:26 PM EST
i've been woefully absent and had missed that. inexcusable really.

i've disabled uploads on 256k.org/wfc8 so as to give  naf's precedence. once the wfc is complete, i can archive the stories there if the authors consent.
