Any Interest?  
I'm curious if (a) anyone's still watching this come, and (b) is there any interest in a second wave? Whether you wrote before or not, I'd like to hear some input. Hell, I never finished my stories. *sigh* Another question related to this: Should I somehow get a theme for the next wave?

I'm still watching, but only out of inertia. RL has me in its clutches too tightly for ficathons.

=) I can understand. There are so many things I'm supposed to be doing, but I nearly freak out whenever I think about 'em. -_-

I'm still watching but do not, to be honest, have any hope that anyone else will post a story. I think the impetus has run out.

I'm not sure what you mean by a second "wave"? Is this a way of encouraging people to finish their stories, or is it the same as a new round?

Love the icon! *g*

Yeah, "wave" = "round" in this case. Depending on if there's a theme or not, well, then I don't see a problem with someone picking up their dropped project. (Something I'd be apt to do, if I did participate... *considers* First term is dedicated to senior projects so honestly I doubt I'll be writing much. I haven't written anything my lj entries and emails all summer, drr.) /ramble

^_^ I'd try to figure out promotion schemes again. I have a hard time figuring this out, I admit, given that I'm torn between wanting to post promos everywhere but also hate the idea of spamming people (afterall, I ignore announcements more often than not. ;;^^)

If you do do a second round, I'd suggest making the submission time shorter. At the time, I thought it was a good idea having such a long gap before the submission date, but in practice people's enthusiasm seems to have fizzled out.

The story that I wrote for the thon turned out to be the most popular one I've ever written, so I'd like to add a quick thanks to you for organising it all and providing the initial impetus for writing the story in the first place.

Glad you like the icon. Illya is me!

I was wondering about that. What do you suggest for a due date if, say, the 'thon opened on Aug 15?

I'm so glad you got a great response. =)

Still watching. And hoping to finish my story someday.

A second round might be fun, and it might encourage some of us who didn't finish the first time to get moving and do so.

=) Glad you're still thinking about finishing it! I know I want to finish mine. =3 There were a bunch of stories I longed to see, so I'm hoping one day there might be more finished.
