April Showers Of Allusions

Please upload your submissions (6000 word limit, but you may go a bit over to avoid an awkward break), double-spaced, in Word 97-03 (.doc), or RTF) to "Files" under the "More" tab by 3:00pm on Sat. 3/29. Note whether it is a complete work or a piece in progress. Critiques will be optional on any work posted later. Bring your crits to the meetup so that you can present their main points, and please upload them to "Files" ASAP afterward. (If you submit work it WILL be critiqued; there is an expectation of quid pro quo even if you do not attend the meetup.) Note: Some work submitted may be intended for mature readers, so if you are under 18 years of age we request that you obtain permission from a parent/guardian to participate. At Flapjack's enter through the front door, make a right, and go to the tables at the far end. We'll be in the restaurant, not the pub. See you there! :)

    I have off this weekend so I'll definitely get the remainder of the crits finished.
    Sorry for the long delay

    I want to apologize for not putting any crits up yet. I'm having a real hard time finishing them. Last week two people quit on the spot and I'm working an upwards of 80 hours for the next two weeks. It was the same reason I couldn't make it this past Sunday. I'll upload them as soon as I can

      Don't worry, Zac. We all understand that life gets in the way sometimes.

    Sorry guys. Headed to the race in a few minutes, and there just isn't going to be time to do both. I'll get Sarah to change her RSVP this afternoon. Have fun. See you next month. We'll post tomorrow.

    Some day....I will attend one of the gatherings.

      Hopefully, you'll be able to find one that fits into your schedule. The gabfests are just as entertaining as the critique meetups.

    I have to change my RSVP. I ended up in Iowa looking at houses with my wife, which wasn't how the weekend was supposed to go. Still, it's a necessary step for us. I have already reviewed the 3 submissions I downloaded last week, so I'll get the posted on Sunday evening.

      Good luck house hunting! I can't wait to see what happens to Navi!

    Will be out of town on the 6th. I do hope to attend the May meeting.

    • Ashley H.

      You should definitely try to come out. Hopefully, we'll see you in May!

    I wish I were able to attend, but with Sunday at 3:00 is just about the worst time for me now that soccer season has returned. Perhaps again this summer.

    April 5, 2014

    • Ashley H.

      We'll look forward to having you rejoin once soccer dies down. :)

    Got called into work for 2nd shift tomorrow, I shall be a "no go."
    I'll be there next time

    April 5, 2014

    • Ashley H.

      That's disappointing. See you in May!

    What needs to be uploaded 6,000 words? Is this a requirement in order to attend?

    March 17, 2014

    • Dave S.

      Since I am a newbie, where would I go to submit it online?

      March 26, 2014

    • Ashley H.

      Click on the More tab along the top of this page and go to files. There's a link at the top of that page that allows you to upload a new file. You can download other people's files to critique from that page as well. If you submit, you should critique any file that has April in the title.

    April 6 is race day for us. Half marathon for the girls and 5k for the men and boys. (I'm not running this year...) so we may not actually be able to attend, but we'll both submit and critique.

    I forgot to mention yesterday...Don your advertising on your vehicle was what prompted me to check it out. You were sitting at the light at Shumaker's a while back when I saw the magnets on your door.
