Children in Need - Done!!

We've finished! And I'm pooped! Great feeling of elation though. It was a real slog at times and a real buzz the rest of the time. I've written a lot of crap but some of the stories really sucked me in and I had to hurry to get them finished before the hour was up.

It looks like, as a group of about 20, we've written 330 stories and poems in just 30 hours.

I wrote 18 of them - beating last year's 15! In total I wrote 10,629 words. More than double what I normally write in a month!

Tomorrow the crits start. That'll be a tiring job in itself.

I can't publish my story titles at the moment as critting is done anonymously but this is how my last 30 hours worked out:
