I'm thinking of doing a short story for elf wood.  I'm looking for an idea on a short short story since my ideas turn into much more than a short story.  It needs to be VERY limited whatever you suggest.  I'll drop a ball here when I'm done, if I can stick to it.

Hey brad looking at old messages. Saw you wanted someone to read over your story. If you're still looking for criticism go ahead and email it to me. I'll pm you my email

I was going to. But I was told by the store they were comping them, or had something for them so I sat there and uploaded the pictures I had taken, ran through email, and was leaving. He ran out and stopped me, and they bought mine instead. They are on tight schedules on those things..... I felt he stepped way up and beyond what could be hoped for. I certainly didn't plan on anything like that.

Submissions are due 2 days ago for that one Aldy.

I shall.  I may remember wrong, but didn't you bring him and Kristi a sandwich?  Also, I have recovered the file and shall try to finish it tonight. For our next Write off, i was wondering if you guys could go to to look at the one Cate posted up.  It is coming up next week I believe but if you all could at least give it a look, it would help out the site because people need examples to see that it is fun.
