EXACTLY! Good team work, symetric!

I am honestly shocked, both of those are classics

The library, eh? I always assumed people found Chandler by watching too many Bogart films!

26 hours? Very impressive. I tried twice on fic and personal posts, and got Stephen King and JK Rowling respectively. :D

Holy fucking hell, I want that prize but 80K, really? That's...intimidating. I'll think about it. Thanks for the link!

Oh, goddammit. Why is the US no longer a British commnwealth? *fumes* I had hope! Hope!

Very exhausting, lol.

It's the length of a normal book, in fairness. I guess the advance is pretty substantial? For me the draw is that TERRY PRATCHETT might read your work. *________*

Lol, I got James Joyce, which is approximately the most hilarious thing on the planet. Also, 26 hours is far too many hours to work all at once. You should come over to England and hang out with me and not work while I make tea and pancakes and talk about books and I HOPE I AM NOT BEING OVERLY SUBTLE HERE.

SO ARE YOU ENTERING???? Er, doctoring aside, I mean. YOU'RE ENTERING? :D?

PANCAKESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

I'm thinking about it! My next job will be slightly less busy than this one (I think ... unless there's a run on HIV, as it's infectious disease). So. Tempting.

Heh Chandler is a depressed very very dryly witty dude who wrote murder mysteries featuring a ...depressed v v dryly witty dude who does the right thing no matter what and gets a tiniest (and sweetest) happy ending ever in the very end of the very last book (at least I think it was the last book).. \o?

So ... nothing like my writing, then?

Heh, you may have a point here...

That is too many hours /o\

Re competition: ... huh. Not for me, because I'll be lucky to finish the novel I'm already writing by December, and it doesn't fit the terms and conditions. But are you planning on entering then? Because that's pretty damned exciting.

Four of them were sleep, though. And half an hour of eating.

It at least gives me a deadline to write towards. I've never got 80k in my life. It would be a stretch.

Oh, well. Quite yer whining, girl.

Seriously, though :|

Do you have ideas? Feel free to bounce ideas or progress reports off me any time :)

I knew there was a reason we kept her as Queen... XD

The Big Sleep! I had to read it for class along with the movie.

No. Just an aside from a colonial ;P
