I'm probably out of the contest at this point, I haven't written more than 500 words and I also started working in a toy retailer in my town, it was supposed to be a week-end only job, but it's likely to become full time till Christmas. Hence my free time is currently reduced to a trickle.

Santa makes an appearance at SWM! As most of you know, this workshop did not involve any prizes, just holiday bragging rights! Well, thanks to the generosity of one of our stalwart members, Sarge395, the winner of the 2015 Winter Workshop will receive one of his replica SUPERGIRL'S TV COSTUMES (sizes Small or Medium), donated by Sarge. Winner will coordinate with Sarge on shipping details (he also has graciously offered to pay for US Shiping).

While it doesn't include boots or cape, this looks to be a high quality product that would be great for that special Supergirl in your life! If that doesn't give one incentive to start writing, I don't know what will! Please help me in thanking Sarge for his generous holiday spirit!

I have a vignette from the gunman prompt that I will submit if I don't come up with anything more substantial.

Cursing is allowed, right?

I am 2752 words into it. I have never won one of these, but I know my wife would love that costume so count me as highly motivated!

I now have drafts of two stories (at least edited so the spelling/grammar aren't hideous. No one should see my original copy!)

Not sure I like the first one, I have some tweaks I'd like to do to it. The second is clunky but I like it. I might try to give it some more love (adding more ubergirl), but I think it works well as is.

I hope to give them a bit of focus during the week and finish them off on Saturday.

It was good to give me an excuse to write, I've been too focused on other things going on in my life and not giving enough time to writing. (I just finished the second story and it felt really good writing it.)

I vaguely recalled someone offering to help with editing?

because of the site outage I'm extending the deadline from next Tuesday to next Saturday so that's from the 15th December to the 19th December.

My entry is ready - I've had a story / idea for a while which I wanted to get out there in the real world - so this was the perfect chance to do it. I've tried uploading it via the website, but I don't seem to have permission.

I've emailed you instead Fats.

Thanks

I'm a little behind thanks to some other things going on this week. Not sure if I'm going to make it. If not, then I'll post it after the contest is over.

Been ages since I submitted anything, and I can't figure out how to insert text into the submission form as opposed to jut typing in the tittle and author, so I sent you mine last night by e-,mail.

So my entry is nearly finished and I wanted to check if there's someone that would want to do some fast proof reading? I mean it doesn't even need to be that fast, there's almost 56 hours left to deadline. :laugh:
I could also proof read if someone wants , if it's reasonable length. (even though I'm not a native English speaker)

Anyhow if someone wants to help, send me an email at pansardum@gmail.com and I'll send a copy.

Am I correct in assuming that the deadline is midnight Saturday night, UTC time?

With many thanks to algae2k for some great edits. Every time someone edits my stuff I learn a bit and I'm amazed at how much better a few tweaks here and there make things flow better.

I shall be posting my first story soon (if not tonight then tomorrow after I stumble out of my post Star Wars haze). I'm just going through the edits and looking for any last minute changes I might want to do.

Hopefully I'll have time to get my second story (really my first one) tuned up and ready to post too. I still don't quite like it.
