If so, it needs to be started on a certain date in late June.
This will be the one were we try to write real fanfic and show that we, fans, are better writers than the hacks, no?
Fanfic would be fun, but not needed to prove most folks on this board are better writers than the twits. Most folks who post here are more articulate and their posts have better prose than the 700+ page monstrosities written by the twits.
I dont consider myself in the group of posters who are better than them, but when I get out of this financial funk, I plan to go back to school for fun, and learn the skills for writing. Lots of ideas in my head, problem being, when they come out, its like boulders bouncing down a hill.
Well, when you do, hang onto that metaphor; it's a good one.
