Typing 2010 instead of 2009 is going to take some getting used to.
Regardless! Welcome to the new year!
Let us start the year off with this Friday Four Line Prose prompt: faking it.
Small site note: I've finally started going through my old posts and adding labels for the writing prompts. 125 down, 450'ish to go! Sigh.
Anyway! While I'm chipping away at that I've added a Label Cloud just above the archive list on the bottom right. Currently I have it set to display any prompt that was used more than once. I'd love to make it a random selection but I haven't worked out how to do that yet. If it's even possible.
I'll update my progress on A Fighting Chance later (once I've actually worked on it).
Update: 1,028 words today, and the posts have been labeled up to the start of January.
That would be way more awesome if it wasn't January 2009 I was talking about.
Over on Protagonize we've been dealing with fake accounts for a while now, but it's been getting worse recently (which lead to the blog post from Nick linked above). Basically, a few users have created additional accounts for the sole purpose of rating their own work highly so that they move up in the overall author rankings.
What a load of silly nonsense.
It's pointless and ridiculously insecure and a waste of my damn time - I'd much rather be reading and writing stories than tracking down and dealing with this crap.
