What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Monday, March 19, 2007

So Lord Batson's Posted the Last Challenge.. . .

Kinda sad in a way, but I don't doubt he'll come up with other ones to keep us on our toes. Mood and suspense by mood is the challenge and I think I'll try to describe the archives that Mynas keeps. That or a canyon, or a desert even. Oooh, I could do something I've wanted to play with for some time. Hmm, well looks like I've got lots of choices on this one.


Now, to work!

My dear scribe I am sorry to hear you have not been felling well, but know you are in my prayers. Also I think I can cheer you up. On the first suspense technique Lord Batson made clear there will be seven suspense techniques not six so there is still one left. This gives me great joy and should infamously give some to you.
^_^ Yours truly

in great letter format but there is no great letter without a ps so

PS: Hi lol nice to be back.

LOL You are right, I am greatly delighted to hear he has something else up his sleeve.

And Christ is good, even when life doesn't seem like it. My family is rallying round, n' so are my friends. If this goes on much longer I will be spoilt.

And I agree about the p.s.'s
