I still lurk, but it's been a while since I posted.
Well, more hours in a day would help.
I like the idea of the workshop, but was actually uninterested in the topic. To me it was the 'same' topic that was approach previously in the only other workshop there was. (and I wasn't very interested in that particular topic then). I just don't have much personal interest in writing basically a birth story... and with my second, well
8pm- tv and pizza on the couch
9:10pm- called neighbor, b/c I think I may be having contractions
9:30 - 9:40- made it to the hospital
10:07pm- had a baby
Seriously, that is about the extent of my birth story in the condensed version, but the longer version.... well, isn't much longer.
I'm not sure what would help. I think trying to open it up to posts, isn't a bad idea. It's been requested before, and I'm not sure the reasoning behind not allowing posts. Do a 3m eval, and if it fails miserably, well, it can always be moved back. Correct?
Maybe a person of the week thing, where a different person opens with a work they did in their favorite, topic or genre and also tells a little about themselves, and then others can add works on that topic/genre.
