Ron - I have a very special dare for you...

I DARE YOU... to stop and smell the lilacs... Take a three day sabbatical from PiP...  Use the time to write as many new chapters of Askaris as you possibly can.  

Then - return to the forums, reopen the Writers' Workshop for a special session for the month of June... and post your newly written chapters there for our members' perusing pleasure... *googols*...

Speaking of Askaris... thanks for moving it so that a) I can't read it again and b) I can't show it to my signifigant other...

That would be hilarious if it wasn't so darn sad. I haven't touched my novel in nearly a year. If I did find time, the first thing would be to re-read everything I've written so far and, at 180,000 words, that would take a fair portion of those three days. But even if I could forego the "immersion" time and move right into a good writing groove, I typically churn out about two or three finished pages a day. I don't think that qualifies for "as many new chapters" as you can.  

Sorry 'bout that, Chris. When we moved our dot net sister to Athena, I put the old blue screen forums into a separate folder to hide them, and the chapter you're talking about went with them. It's still there, though. I would post the URL for you, but that particular chapter would best qualify for our Adult forum. Here's a hint: take the directory portion of the old URL you have and put it in a folder called "junk." If that doesn't make sense and you still want it, email me.

Sharon, you're cowboy smilie is too big to be a smilie. But I can use it as a model, I guess, for a new one.

The Dares have been met - sort of.

1. There are now about a score of new smilies, including   Let's all remember that not everyone is on Cable or DSL and try not include every new smilie in every thread.  

2. The Alley has been re-opened (different thread, but still a dare).

3. The Wings of Death has been posted in the Prose forum. Not a new chapter, as challenged, this is rather the chapter that precedes the "hidden" one.

4. The End of the Forums has been posted in Open #14, describing - as challenged - the new   smilie. I hope I can be forgiven the slight Title change. I think I kept the intent intact, and this one fit far better.

Busy morning, but I think I am now off the hook. And it was fun, too.
