Just regular stuff I guess. Amateur is pretty good. I don't know, girls with fake and exaggerated breasts always feels cheap.

I'm sorry if this is offensive by the way.

Averydoll,

I think I will not make the deadline. I will continue to review, but if they don't let me know if it helped them, then not much I can do. I propose that we keep the same deadline for the final draft. This way you will get more time for rewrite and my punishment will be that I get less time. Let me know if this works for you. I completely forgot about the points. Stupid me.

I'd do the same, but I haven't found the balls to submit something yet.

I was about to write some generic posts to get the points and then I just couldn't. I refuse to not review correctly. It would not be fair to the people who put in the work only to get some bullshit review because I didn't plan ahead. I will put in the work, review appropriately, and earn my points. I do appreciate the offer.

I'd duke it out. I got 30 points! But I'm working on something and I fear going versus more experienced writers.

I'm not chickening out. I just need to wait for the people to tell me what they thought of my review. I just need five more points and I have three reviews outstanding.

Averydoll will just get more time for revision than I will. I know it isn't in the by-laws, but this battle will happen.

I love writer battles here!  Not being in them.  I like judgeing reviewing rating judgeing.  I should have been the new American Idol judge.

No he's not.  You're just trying to get something started.  Utah's just afraid that if someone challenges him to battle, they won't actually show up, which would result in a bunch of unspent adrenaline.  That makes Utah's hands shake, and that sucks.

avery of the dead from Kentucky is reading Cipher Sisters February 10, 2012 - 7:13am

Utah - in all seriousness - no one will challenge you because I don't think anyone believes they can beat you.  It's why I won't anyway.  Although I have never challenged anyone.  Which probably says a lot about me. 

You should challenge Andrew Logandale.  Because he has three first names.  That was rude.  I apologize.  I could delete it.  But I won't.

Shit, there are a lot of people who can beat me.  Everything any of you has read from me is at least 2 years old.  Stuff I wrote and sat on a shelf and didn't look at for months.  I haven't drafted a short story in over a year.  My mojo is weak.

You know, as soon as I hit post on that last entry I though of Forrest Whittaker suckering Paul Newman into a truly humilliating game of pool in The Color of Money.  

But I'm not cross-eyed!

Yes.  I have an idea that when Diaz wins our battle I will  force him to battle you somehow.  But that will take a while.  Well, I feel like talking about it will make it happen. 

Or hey, why don't you just challenge someone...go on...you can do it!

@Averydoll and Diaz:  So you know you are not forgotten:  I will review both your stories this weekend.  With my mother-in-law in town, I can't actually give a much tighter timeline than that.  But as early as possible.
