    I hope you mean we won't do more than one at a time? But if, for example, we participate in June's LM we can still participate in July's, correct?

    Well, after botching it all up and messing up the thread, I finally got what a sonnet is and iambic pentameter means. Sorry guys - but at least I learned something. I'm off to have a little breakdown till I recover. huni.

    (I still can't make those weird codes work.)

    Don't worry about it, Huni. While LM is a little more structured than Writing Challenges we don't demand absolute perfection. Everyone is entitled to a few mistakes (or, if you’re as bad as I am, dozens) and like you said, at least you learned something. That's one of the reasons why I chose sonnets in the first place - to get the members to try something a little different than what they are used to and maybe learn in the process.

    As for the codes, have you read this?

    What's the next LM?

    I'm assuming that you're asking whether it will be a prose or poetry competition because the actual theme is a secret until the big day.

    It really depends on who runs the next comp. If I'm the one to do it, we've talked about letting each entrant choose between writing a short story or poem based on a particular subject. If Pawn is back in time, he may go with that or he could have something else in mind already.




    Edit: Never mind. It looks like the next LM will be a prose competition.

    In case anyone was wondering, yes, this thread did used to be randomly named 'Free Love,' and yes, I have shamelessly repurposed it. I felt the addition of a few beanbags and a coffee machine would enhance the ambience, eh. So, how's everyone doing?
