You do realise that for a random writing exercise 25 pages is alot of work for no apparent reward. What's the point of this?

its doubled spaced size 14 font, thats really something like 10 pages.
I got positive feedback elsewere that this would be a good "im bored" activity. It'll be better if you work with other people....
the point is to have fun and see if you can churn out better work than others.

* If this wasn't such a dizzying array of work (especially during finals :P) I'd enter in a moment...oh wait, it's Halo, nevermind :P

Edit: yay! a post from Tim!

people people its not going to be due till after finals(possibly going into summer as well), plus it'd be best if you didn't work alone, i already mentioned you can work with other people!

im still open for suggestion on ways i can make more people try the challenge.

I might be interested...it would help me get out of my writer's block. But I don't know much about Halo - I have 1, 2 and the 3 beta but I never really followed storylines or anything like that (plus I haven't even beaten any of them, I mostly play multiplayer) so apart from that I may be game :P

I was actually thinking about a summer writing project with a few people from TO, yet to be announced to them...(namely you and Stankov, as your both good writers and I know you :P)

and I don't think that I'd be too opposed to writing up a Halo story with you Tim, hell, the two of us together could probably finish it in about 3 days of goofing off :P
