Workshop 1.12: Villainess Month

So I never did get an answer to this. Is sex between consenting probably-18 year olds allowed?


Probably ;) .

You're not getting clear answers because the answer is the same as it always is about what constitutes obscenity: "I know it when I see it." If graphic depictions are necessary for artistic effect, they're justifiable; if not, not. You have to use your own judgment. But the worst that can happen is that after we see it we'll decide to take it back down.

is it too early to request an extension to the deadline?


You don't need an extension; just be late. Submit it whenever you finish it; we'll enjoy it just the same.


Then what's the point of having a deadline? Participation in the workshop, the voting, getting more people to read your story because they're reading all the workshop stories, etc.

Besides, extending the deadlines on the workshops around here is something of a tradition. :P

I second YAGS's motion. JonX is planning a photoshoot for next week and he's clamoring for a script, so I've put "Crazy Psycho Super Bitch" on hold for the past few days. An extension to, say, May 11th would give us writers ten more days, including two additional weekends, to finish our submissions.

In my mind, I am working on it, just have not put a word into the computer yet. If I do my story, it will be knocked out just before the deadline in the last week. Will have to see how work goes, but I think with a little luck I will be able to get to it.



When I said I could probably make, it was because I was counting on one or more individuals asking for a deadline extension which I am all for as I am just starting on mine today!

Glad I could help. :wink:

Actually, my story is progressing nicely. I finished the 4th chapter, started chapter 5, and I know exactly what I want to write through chapter 7. After that, I have a bunch of ideas for later chapters, though I haven't decided on the exact order of events yet.

So given how slowly I write, I'm hoping to finish a chapter or two per week, which should get me far enough to share this thing by May 11. Given that it's a slowly escalating story, I just want to make sure I reach a certain point before sharing it, which will probably be chapter 8.

So will there be an extension? I drafted a scene of my story today. It's coming along pretty nicely, but there's no way it'll be ready on Friday. How about another two weeks?

Lfan -- make it so.

We'll split the difference and say the deadline for voting is stories to be submitted by the 8th (next Friday). Stories maybe submitted afterward at any time, but those in the can on the 8th will only be eligible to win the prize (to be announced)

How about the 11th? That's only another couple of days, and it would give writers another weekend. I'm sure I'm not the only one who does most of his writing on Saturday and Sunday.

I second this motion, unfortunatly my story came together pretty bad and I'm trying to rewriting it. I can definitly use a couple of extra days.

I'm always in favor of a little extra time, as I'm such a slow writer, so I'll vote in favor of the 11th instead of the 8th, too. Though I'm not going to be available to work on my story that particular weekend, anyway, so it won't help me any. I just hope I have enough to submit by the 8th, either way. I didn't get as much as I'd hoped for done this past weekend.

So let it be written! Deadline extended to May 11th. I currently have TWO stories received so far (G7 and Berkhart), hopefully more to come (especially by extending the deadline!)

So, this may seem silly, but what time is the deadline on the 11th? And what time zone? I wish I could work on my story this weekend, but I'm going on a weekend trip, so I won't have computer access between Friday morning and Sunday night.

I can probably finish enough of the story to submit by Thursday, but I'd like to get as far as possible with it, and still have some time to proofread before submitting. So I was thinking maybe I'd print out what I have by Thursday night to take with me on my trip, spend a little time proofreading with a red pen over the weekend, and then type my changes into the computer Monday evening after work. I just want to make sure that won't be too late to submit the story.

With the deadline extension, I now have a personal conflict so if you need a few extra days to tidy things up, go ahead. Results prob won't be posted till later that week sometime.

Ok, thanks. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish one more chapter tonight, which I wouldn't have time for if I was proofreading tonight, also. This way, I can print what I've got, proofread over the weekend here or there, and finish typing it up Monday evening before sending it in.

So four stories have been submitted, by ...

... GeekSeven [ #1: The Celebutante ]
... Berkhart [ # 2: The Rap Star ]
... Anon [ #3: The Mercenary (?) ]
... Marknew [ #10: The Dumb Blonde ]

YAGS says he'll be submitting a story (or at least a substantial portion of a story) based on #7 [ The Bully ] ... and I should be able to send in my story [ #4: The Crazy Psycho Bitch ] by the middle of the week (taking advantage of those few extra days).

Not a bad showing. What about the others? ace, angels, Lfan, Brad -- how are yours coming along?

Argo, sorry to disappoint you, but the deadline is tomorrow, May 11th. The extension was merely from 8th to 11th of May.

Yeah, Admin seemed to be saying we had a a couple of extra days, but didn't give an exact deadline. I just got home from my weekend trip about an hour ago, and I didn't get any proofreading time while I was there. Plus, I wanted to add another chapter that's about half written, so I'm hoping I have at least until Tuesday night. I'm too tired to work on it now, so if we don't have that extra time, I might be cramming tomorrow evening to finish.

Story submitted - 9 chapters of it, anyway. I really wish I had time to finish this story before the workshop deadline, since I've got a big finish in mind, but that would take at least another month. What I've got so far is only about half of what I've got planned for this thing, and it's taken me nearly a month to write this much.

I'll definitely be curious what type of reaction I'll get, since this story is so different than normal for this site.
