We're on BST, Arg. Five hours ahead of you.

I don't know about admin, but if you're five hours late, I'd wait around.

I know....i've went through two story arc ideas in my head, plsu i'm now working fulltime which is a pain in the arse....i didn't post the rest of emergence because i've grown to hate it...i'll reformat it anyway and send it in to finish it off though. As for this workshop....i'm going to finish it tonight hopefully...if not, then tomorrow morning.

Almost done. Just need to read it a few more times to get the typos out and correct a couple of things. Will finish after work tomorrow. I should be able to have it submitted by 0500 Zulu Friday am. I will be a lot closer on the time than the word count (just under 3400).

Is that GMT?


I deliberately left off the time zone for vagueness!

Let's say 11:59PM Thursday in Honolulu (i.e. GMT-10)

0500 Zulu Friday


"Zulus, sir! Thousands of 'em!" (One for the movie buffs - there's a clue in there somewhere...)


Why don't we create a new Time Zone for these workshops. We could combine GMT with PST to make "PMT". No-one would dare piss about with that.

Agreed. 1000 words um....roxs! I only regret I heard of this just last weekend. My inspiration is limited to 2 stories per week. An extra day would not avail me at this point. Please enjoy what little I've to offer.

Love,

I worked hard on my story tonight and shaved it down to just 2367 words over the limit.

For the record, here in Arizona we stay on Mountain Standard Time (GMT-7) all year long. We pray for the sun to go down at night so there is no daylight savings time here. I can never remember the pneumonic. Is it Spring the same and Fall remain,or Fall the same and Spring remain?

Post it anyway! Wanna see! Over the time limit anyway. We won't hold it against ya (well...admin might choose to, but I might vote for ya regardless-- if it's really good enough to be worth saving the extra 3x wordcount).

There should just be some handicapping system so you can enter the heavier weight stories in the 1000-word workshop anyway, just cost ya a vote or two off the bat or something.

Love,

All story submissions are always welcome here at SuperWomenMania.

However, only those stories that fit within the 1,000 word limit will feature in the poll for SGInc Workshop 2.1.

I thought I did post it (and within the time if not the word limit). We have been on vacation these past two weeks and I dragged a keyboard along with my wife's laptop with us to write the story. I sent it late last night. I should have realized when the computer said somethig about using word
instead of express that there was a problem. I should be able to burn it to disc and move it to my PC and send it.

Well, It's a good thing my new computer came with a floppy drive as my wife's laptop doesn't have a CD burner in it. I don't know about in the UK, but here in the USA, you can get smoking deals from Dell on nearly new computers that were sent back to them to be fixed for some reason.
I got this one a couple of months ago and I specified the memmory along with the DVD player and burner. Lucky for me, who ever ordered it the first time requested a floppy drive in it.

I think the transfer and the
e-mail went ok this time. If not, let me know. Put me in with YAGS on the "On Topic" group.

Replied by MackTheMouse2 on topic Yeah, I just couldn't finish in time
I guess the writing bug has left me these past few months. I keep getting ideas, but not enough enthusiasm to turn them into real stories. I suppose that gives me material for later. Shrug.

Anyway, looking forward to reading everyone else's works & polling and commenting- I've got enough energy to do that!

Glad to see a bunch of entries again.
