So, after almost a year of lying on the couch drinking beer, the muse awoke and started nudging me to write again. I'm doing it by joining the "Last Fiction Writer Standing" competition.


LFWS stands for Last Fic Writer Standing. If you’re familiar with the LIMS in many icon making comms you know what this is about, but if you’re not this is how it works:

The challenge is composed of rounds. On each round the participants will have to write a story following a general prompt. Participants have a week to write something, so the fics will be short. Usually drabbles or something of the sort. The stories will be submitted to the mods and will be posted anonymously. Then the stories are voted. The voters will select their favorite and least favorite story, and can give reasons for the votes (always with constructive criticism, bashing and voting for yourself are not allowed). After the round of votes, one winner for the round will be announced, and one writer will be eliminated and not continue to the next round. No need to be afraid about not continuing, it is a natural part of the process. This will continue for as many rounds as necessary, until there is only one writer standing, which will be selected the Last Fic Writer Standing.

Thanks. :-) I was in a bit of a career rut for a while, but that's hopefully over.

Glad the muse has come out to play - I won't hand her anything alcoholic to celebrate. Love your story!

Happy to hear your muse is back. Hope she sticks around and that RL cooperates. I enjoy your fic, so this is good news for all of us.
