Signs and Stars is finally done! It kind of dies towards the end as my ability to write dissipates, but it is finished. At 5370 words.

Skills of Focus/Thread Summary :
Honestly, I'm not the most proud of it, but its done, and in it is also some significant groundwork for the next seasons and their developments. The skills of focus are a mixture of writing and astronomy, perhaps some cartography depending on one's definition. Instead of having her read a book/journal, I have Naia write one.

I've never written her using her 15 astronomy SB before, so I was/am a little iffy about how I went with assumed knowledge there, so I welcome feedback.

This was an awesome challenge, and though for writer like myself who can't do lengthy amount of writing in single sitting, it was hell. I know my PC is much better with it- and I needed the motivation!

A Tale of Akalak Chivalry

This was an extremely tough challenge for me, I started 6 hours before this post @_@

Hope it doesn't get too bad at the end as I started to get tired.

These are the
Weekend Challenge Winners!


I think I can safely say I NEVER expected this kind of response. You guys are one hell of a set of writing fiends! I'm absolutely blown away. I know I promised that I'd grade them all myself, but I had no idea that we'd have 19 folks across the finish line. That's 5k per thread at a total of well over 95,000 words! I've had numerous pms from graders asking if they could help. And I have to say HECK YEA! If all you prominent graders just grade one of these, we'll knock off this challenge and have it all graded in time for a new one next weekend. As for myself, I'm going to try to do two a day all week until they are all done.

Hopefully I got everyone off the thread on the list. If I missed someone, please post and let me know. If you grade something - no need to go in order here since its a challenge and kind of a mess who came in which rank (since people edited their 'I'm in!' posts instead of made new posts) - just post below when you grade something and I'll cross them off the list and delete your post so this one stays at the bottom! I'm still thinking if we make the challenges a 'thing' how we are going to do some bragging rights with them. Any suggestions are open!

Land of the Dead - Aislyn
