RE: MrsFSD: "I doubt I'll finish, I rarely finish anything I start (not limited to my writing projects) but I'm registered, I sent my $10 and I've already been in a flame"

I signed up last year but couldn't get started. Some jerk filed their whole 50,000 words the first day, which rather offended my sensibilities, and I had some business deals pending that could have taken up a lot of my time, so I just let it go. (I did have a damn neat title though!) I can sit down and crank out a thousand words, no problem, as long as I don't have to. I just have no self-dicipline.

I've been visiting the site the past week or so and checking out their Discussion Boards, thinking that might inspire me. About all I came up with there was one good line: "Yeah, well I didn't have talking dogs I just wrote drunk."

Now that's my style!
