REVIEWS: September Writeoff · 12:35am
Kind fillies and gentlecolts: Again we come to that time when yr. humble author sloughs off said humility like a molted carapace, rolls up his metaphorical sleeves, and digs into the 23 24 stories produced for this month's writeoff. (There's a bonus review at the end, of a story that was written for the writeoff but not submitted.) The theme was "There Is Magic In Everything", and as usual, you can find these stories here, over at writeoff.me.
Opinions in the review thread seem to vary, but I personally found it one of the strongest writeoff rounds I've entered. My "hugbox" score (the mean vote I assigned to the stories) was almost a full point higher than usual, and that was after weighting my votes to normalize the scores. This is going to result in a great crop of stories when they start trickling in to FIMFiction!

Now that this is done — and now that I've splurged on the latest Humble Bundle and gotten some Papers, Please in; really, take some writing time off to play it, because it's a fine, fine game fraught with moral choices and excellent atmosphere and gameplay you've never seen anywhere else — it's time to get back to writing. I haven't gotten a single word out this week, but it's time to change that.
