I ACCEPT! 

Although for some reason it didn't occur to me that by asking people to battle anyone would want to battle me. 

 

jfdiaz - do you accept Danny's writing prompt?  I'm ready to do this.  We have to post rough drafts one week from today in the workshop.  They will be critiqued.  Then we have one week fromt he day of posting the roughs to post a final draft.  Once the final is posted, a poll is created for people to vote for their favorite.

Also, are we playing for a prize, or just bragging rights?  (I'm sort of broke, so if you want to do bragging rights, I'm down with that.  But if you really want to buy me a book later - I can deal with that too)

Wow.  Sure of victory so soon.  You should watch out, Avery.  Some of Mr. Diaz's posts are pretty entertaining!

@Diaz:  Instead of "end" at the end of your story, you should totally go with "mahalo".

Not actually.  I had one battle before and I lost miserably, sooooo.  Yeah.  My actual real life hope is that I put up a good fight!  Ha!

Yes.  B. Rabbit.

No, it was tattoojunkie and he slaughtered me!  Okay.  Maybe it wasn't that bad...no...it was.  But I had fun doing it.  It's just a game.

If it's undecided, let's hear Rian's prompt and then I will choose between the two.  No fair to let one of the contestants pick.

"a woman learns her husband is cheating on her and decides to get back at him"

 

Prompt is accepted.

Avery I chose you because you have been on here longer than me and have been writing WAY longer than me. I want someone that was going to force me to expand my horizon.

The prize shall be one post that will praise the other writer and explain how you, or I, were beaten miserably and how you no longer can talk directly to the other writer unless you go through a proxy because you just don't rate. Or something to that effect. I believe that would be much more fun than buying stuff for each other.

2,500 words or less, one week from today, 02/09/2012, NLT midnight. Then one week from then to post final drafts.

I believe we have terms. Do you agree?

I agree.

I have one question.  How do you know how long I've been writing?

@PinkPopeyeDoyle thank you for the vote of confidence.

@Averydoll your bio said you write pretty much constantly and I don't so you get the edge. I don'tg creep...much.

Yes, woman are now out-numbered in the world. We just haven't had a good blood bath of a war to thin the ranks. How F-up is that thought?

I just meant out numbered on the site.

Oh.  In the bio I just meant I was a liar.  You shouldn't think too much about that.

It seems he wasn't really dedicated to kicking your ass.  If you think about it, that's a really great way to be a dick.  Challenge somebody to a write-off and then not do it, just watch while they put out all that effort and post and get critiqued.  Then go, "Yeah, you won and stuff.  Congrats."

Okay, I'm going to go ahead and post mine.  But if you back out of this now, I'll murder you.  Because I am NOT proud of this story, and I sort of don't want to post it.

Hahaha I need to start being a jerk.

The Ocean Shitty story. I had a conversation with him. I still don't know what's going on with it. If you check his Tumblr there's an application to date him. I didn't know anyone did that.

Ohhhhh.  I saw that.  I'm not interested in reviewing it.  I'll stick to reviewing other members who deserve and appreciate my time. 

Although if it is a 'prank', at least he paid $9 for it, right?

He wrote me and said he put part of my review as his facebook status and got 70 likes. He is a total douchebag and now I think I'm attracted to him, dammit!

I think you'd pop a vein. I almost did.

That's true. But "supposedly" he did it intentionally in order to see the response , and he writes other stuff. The story is apparently true though.

None of it makes sense. Everything in his bio and work contradict each other. Maybe I'm just looking too far into this.

I posted my submission. 

 

"I think you'd pop a vein."

Do I sort of come across as a bitch?  Just curious.  Because that is about the third time someone has mentioned "I wonder what Avery will say" or something to that effect.

No, it's just extremely demeaning towards women. I think anyone who reads it will get angry.  I have a lot of patience, but even that got to me.

I was just curious about what you had to say,
