First let me say that I really love this project, and I really hope there is a next year. :)

I feel bad because mine was a wee bit late, and the quality was not what I'd hoped it would be, so I'm feeling a little :oops: . If I wouldn't have had ten million interruptions, I could have had some fun with this. I think that is part of the excitement though... you never know what you are going to face with the writing challenge, and then if you are anything like me, you never know what challenges/obstacles you will also face in your daily life and/or technologically.

A western was definitely an interesting diversion for me. Even though I live in the US, I think the only "western" I've watched is

lol

Thanks for letting me play.

And special thanks to pigfender for such an amazing experience. The amount of work put into it just boggles the mind.

So. Thinking ahead to next year, how's about a dystopian setting in the Brazilian rain forest?

Running through a quick edit and then sending it off. I'm also proudly stating that I tossed in an almost-gunfight and a gorram.

Mouhaha.


I was supposed to have put in a gunfight but didn't. I cut straight to the afterglow. Comes from doing films, I suppose, where you write

EXT. DESERT - DUSK
There is a prolonged GUNFIGHT involving lots of people firing different guns. Some of the bad guys get away.

CUT TO:

INT. SALOON - NIGHT

MARSHAL
Gosh that was one hell of a gunfight. You should have seen it.


--So I suppose your adventitious gunfight cancels out my circumvented one. Excellent.


See? All about the balance. :p

The amount of Bombay Mix I got through this year was OBSCENE..

Thank you Pigfender.. once again you have surpassed yourself with your brilliance in creativity and organisational splendour.

I don't know about anyone else, but I have this little fantasy that he's been sitting there at his laptop, wearing a HUGE stetson and smoking stogies the whole time..

Here, here (or is that hear, hear)! Needless to say, I agree.

On another note. Love your user name. I always have to read it a couple of times to read it correctly. ;)

So, did some people write multiple versions or chapters, or is one version a remix?

You's the man, Mr. Piggenfender.

Trotted right over to check my bit, afraid of the choppage and fill that it surely must have needed. Relieved to find it stood as it was. Gonna download it and read it in a bit.

Good show everyone. Let's give it up for our fearless leader, Mr. Piggenfender! :mrgreen:
