Apologies for the appallingly beastly tardiness.

Mine went in late too. I had the countdown clock up and it kept adding time. I'm not sure what is going on, but it's still counting down to something. :?

I set my language to UK English, but when I tested it all that it did was stop highlighting UK spellings; didn't catch US spellings. :( I don't think I used any of the obvious ones anyway, which is a shame, but I did remember that they apparently use 'amongst' and 'towards' much more often in the UK and gleefully went with my instinct to use them over 'among' and 'toward'. And after I'd carefully trained myself out of it!
I did forget they have different quotation rules, but I didn't have that many quotations sooo. :P

Almost there now - just a handful of chapters still to come in before I can start the magic of compile and upload.

How has everyone found it this year? Has it been fun?

It's been brill. I'm a first timer and I loved it. Cannae wait to read it.

Huge thanks to Rog for the Herculean effort in getting th s off the ground.

Opening the brief was like unwrapping my first Tiny Tears Doll - Christmas Day 1979 give or take a year or two.

It's been more than fun. I've grown and learned ... I've identified things that I want to work on in my writing. I've also learned a great deal of strange facts about the afterlife that I now have to remember aren't true. That a skilled Marley boasts a 60% conversion rate, but only about 5% last long-term — are statistics I'll be quoting for a long time.

I had a great time. Thank you so may for handling the hard part. Although after reading some of the responses and the amount of work others did, I almost feel like I cheated. I had a heck of a time drafting my chapter, spent the entire night writing and rewriting, throwing my hands up in the air and saying "forget it. I don't want to be a writer. This blows."

So see you in October. :D

Well, I've finally sent mine in. If I said I was happy with it that would be a big fat lie, but i'm never happy with anything I write until I've tinkered with it multiple times, and I didn't get the chance with this one. I gave it my best shot and stuck to the brief, so at least there's that.

Well done to everyone who took part - looking forward to reading everyone else's work!

Done! I'm horribly late, but then I am every year, so at least I'm consistent.

By my count, the Pigster has another hour and a half. Doesn't he get the same hour extra that the writers got at the get-go?

P.S. Well, if we are all comparing word count sizes, mine came in at 3,333. Strange phenomena gobble up words like the word 'cannibal' does.
