I just realized i committed a faux pau (Boo-boo) in my story. It's not grammar/spelling/punctuation mistake (though there may be a few of those in there anyway). I was thinking of fixing it, but instead, I wonder if anyone else can find it. It's puts a different spin on "Writers Challenge". :)

I know I have post a story for the challenge before, but I don't think I will have the time I want to focus on my blog....

I might just cook something up. I've never really written a short story for the sake of writing one, might be an interesting experience.

I look forward to reading it, Llew.

I'll be putting one up, right now I'm still bouncing a couple ideas around. I'm glad we've got some extra time for this challenge.

I like the poem, waytanblee. Oddly fitting with the new Zimmy avatar, all things considered.

A great excerpt, Bmat. I particularly like Bill Williams acting as the counterpoint “Just somethin’ those science-types have made up to get funding. You just wait and see. It’s just a hoax.”

Those damn husbands, never listening to their wives. :mrgreen:

The challenge for the month of October is up. Remember if you want a critique of your work, please say so in your post.

I'd like to thank waytanblee, Bmat, and Silvanus for participating in the September challenge. There's still time left for anyone who still wants to get an entry in.

I'd also like to thank Ariel and Bmat for providing the challenge title and picture for the month of September.
