Green Room - Week 5 - Day 7

The poll closes today
does it close with your hopes and dreams trapped inside of it?

What do you mean you didn't store them there? They are over in that other building? The one over there? You mean the one on fire? I had to keep warm *somehow*. Geez, that look. . . you sure are judgemental!

Week 5 - Results

December 7th. A day that will live in infamy.

Have fun! (I know that you will!)

Work Room - Week 6

Another week. Another Work Room.

Hopefully people have been taking advantage of this space and the chance to interact with their fellow contestants, and passersby - obviously you don't need to be a current competitor to have an opinion on writing! :)

Where is your head at this week? How has your process changed over the last 6 weeks? Or, an even better question - how has your process changed over the years?
