    With me serving 12 years in the navy, 'At Sea' will likely be something personal. So many memories, so many potential stories. USS Clark (FFG-11), USS Estocin (FFG-15) and all of the sailors I met in my time.

    Breaking News! Breaking News!


    At sea, at sea. Mare Tranquillitatis; Tranquility Base, lost on a metaphoric ocean. Scientists report that the surface of Neptune is presided over by six-hundred kilometer high waves of liquid neon. Love psychologists propose that fully a third of all relationships are forged on doomed Mediterranean or Nordic cruises.

    Get cracking though - the levels are dropping. Experts suggest that a giant marine plughole has opened up somewhere near Challenger Deeps and is chucking trillions of gallons of water onto the magma layer by the second. Earth-as-ruined-husk stage expected somewhere around midnight on the 16th. What can save us? Who can save us?

    I'll volunteer to judge the next LM as I have now entered three in a row and time to give back

    75 minutes to go and 49 words left to cut. It feels like I'm killing my babies. Thank God this isn't Alabama or I would face a lifetime in jail as I screamed, "my words are my babies my words are my babies"

    17 words to cut and 59 minutes to go. Almost home

    Done. Ready to post as soon as Firefox pops up. 650 are hell. Don't usually surpass the limit, I was just over 1000 words before I started cutting

    I made it on time. That was a close one.

    It was. Very close. I missed a movie premier to finish my story and have it in on time. Okay, it was a free ticket to see Booksmart, but still I had a ticket

    Can I just say how much I am enjoying reading everyone's stories? There are some SERIOUSLY talented writers here.
