A very late journal entry, but I've been extremely busy. Juggling work and school never came across as difficult, boy was I wrong... I never realised how time consuming taking care of the group was either. I'm sorry you guys got the short end of the stick, and that I've been selfish in this regard.

It's a work in progress. But... hopefully you'll continue being patient with me...

Since I haven't taken time to read many submissions... I won't be featuring anyone (trying to be fair).

But...! I will be adding a new list of prompts for the month of November on the next journal...!

Hopefully we'll see more submissions this time...!

A big thank you, and I guess in a way the only feature for this journal, to Shannon2996 for her submission Freedom! It was a nice story especially since it wasn't from the perspective of a person. I felt that you did a good job conveying a certain distance -if you will- or an alienation between reader and narrator (in a good way).

So props to you for participating, hope to see more from you...!

I'd welcome the new members, but for some reason I didn't keep you all in my inbox, and I'm too lazy to go fishing through the list of new members to find you all... but, here's a welcome (of sorts) anyway! Hope you enjoy being a part of our little community :)

Regular general entries will be up and about again starting Halloween...! Every second Friday I'll be updating (like I used to). I might go back on a temporary hiatus from the group around Christmas time (with exams and more work hours and whatnot), but I'll keep you in the loop this time.

I think that's all for this journal.

Stay classy :)

Almost done with the new Glitch story. 69/7ths done so far. It's random weird suspenseful full of death and of course VERY Glitchy.

It's done but my sis is doing a Grammar check. If I get arrested by the grammar police one more time I'm going away for a long time. Grammar jail is worse than school. .C

Nice group, can you submit short stories separated into multiple chapters?

Awesome stuff, I'll be on the lookout ;)

I think there's a problem with categories- I submitted to "General" but my work popped up under "Fan Fiction." Is there any way to correct this?
