Goodbye CCC!

It’s been one hell of a ride for this website. So many cool stories, so many cool friends met along the way. Yet, I no longer have time for the site like I used to and I think you CCC regulars are in the same boat. Everything is tougher out there and we’re forced to concentrate all our efforts into activities that support us and our families.

I’ll miss everyone dearly, but do me a favor and continue to write. Even if you have to give yourself 10 random words twice a week, please continue to do so – your writing will thank you for it.

I’d like to publicly thank Mitch for taking over for me for May. If any CCC regulars would like to take on June, let me know and I’ll set you up as an administrator and you can keep it alive for a month. Perhaps after that point, I will be in a position to do it again. Contact me if so.

Take care all.

Shane

Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #327

This is a writing prompt. Bet you can’t do it! Take the 10 random words below and crush writer’s block by creating a cohesive, creative short story! And remember: after (if) you finish entering your submission into the comment field, highlight your words and click the bold button to make them stand out and help you determine if you forgot any words. (If you’ve missed previous writing prompts, we BET YOU CAN’T do those, either.) NOTE: Our bolding plugin is gone, so you’ll have to put <b> and </b> around each of your words if you want them to stand out, but NOT REQUIRED THOUGH.

  1. Young
  2. Count
  3. Simple
  4. Enough
  5. Blaze
  6. Pavement
  7. Eat
  8. Effort
  9. Against
  10. Pick

NOTE: Don’t copy and paste from MS Word. Use a program like notepad that removes formatting or just type in the comment field itself. Also, finish your submission, THEN bold the words. Thanks. (And don’t forget to tweet this and share it with your friends.)


CCC Changes Afoot

I’ve done every CCC since we began. It’s been a wonderful ride and I truly feel the CCC regulars are my literary family. I’ve never been part of an online community as cool as this one and I couldn’t imagine not having the CCC as a part of my life.

As unfortune would have it though, I need to take a hiatus from various items in my personal life so that I can avoid exploding mentally and physically. The CCC is one item on the list. I’ve been struggling for over three months just to finish my own entries, much less read and respond to everyone’s awesome entries. I’ve also been struggling to keep my house, but I digress.

Anyway, I’ve found a great solution to keep the CCC going without shutting it down. Mitch has graciously accepted my offer to fill in for me for the month of May so I can get my bleep in order. Mitch represents the awesomesauce of the CCC to perfection – extremely talented and creative, and super supportive of fellow writers. As I log into my admin, I can see his name as the top commenter here, so I believe he will do a fantastic job.

Hell, I may just be able to do every post for the month of May. We’ll see. If after May ends and I haven’t gotten my stuff in order and Mitch can’t fill in, I have a few other regulars I’d like to ask (you know who you are 🙂 ) to fill the void.

Sorry to dampen your day, but tis life I guess.

Write on!
