    Door Matt's Marvellous Mad May of Madness Month

    Evenin' all.

    I haven't been jolly active as of late (for a variety of reasons) and I plan to change that in a rather big way. Mostly because I feel slightly guilty that everyone who took the time to follow me is getting diddly squat to show for it.

    So then, what's the plan? Introducing: Door Matt's Marvellous Mad May of Madness Month.

    RIP Sir Terry Pratchett

    I suppose we all knew it was coming...but it's still a kick to the gut.

    The Most Dangerous Fifteen - And I Am One

    Hands up if you remember the More Most Dangerous Contest contest that ran about a month ago. None of you? Oh.

    Well it got over 90 entries in the end - 19 of which were dedicated to My Little Dashie - and Obs and his cronies judges have whittled those down to fifteen lucky finalists.

    More Most Dangerous Game

    Linky

    I don't know why exactly, but I've always felt more compelled to write for contests than for solitary stories. Whatever the reason, I've had a blast taking part in the latest Writeoffs, and then this thing rolls around.

The Most Dangerous Fifteen - And I Am One · 9:40pm Feb 12th, 2015

Hands up if you remember the More Most Dangerous Contest contest that ran about a month ago. None of you? Oh.

Well it got over 90 entries in the end - 19 of which were dedicated to My Little Dashie - and Obs and his cronies judges have whittled those down to fifteen lucky finalists.

And oh my days - Cloud Trails is one of them.

This gives me extremely puzzled feelings, for two main reasons. Firstly, I've apparently beaten many infamous site authors who actually know what they're doing: PresentPerfect, RainbowBob, M1Garand8, Titanium Dragon, among others. Which leaves me now battling it out with some of the biggest hitters around. Aquaman. Bad Horse. Carabas. Pascoite, etc for a prize-winning place.

The second is that I didn't like Cloud Trails when I re-read the finished piece. The obvious under-writing. The lack of character distinction. The fact you can clearly tell it was written in a single day and needs a ton more re-writes. This does happen with many of my stories, but none prickled me more after the fact than this one.

How does such a thing as this happen? How does a one-hit-wonder author like myself get away with such a thing? Hell if I know. For now...there is only the matter of where it will place in the finals. Almost certainly 15th. There's no way it could land higher....could it?
