I'm in, as well. I'm writing at least one story a month as is (although some months all I get done is flash, so I hope that's OK). Do we have to post them on the Ides of Butt, or by?

I don't necessarily write a story every month, but this is a good incentive, and I have some older stories that I think could use some help.

Very cool.

For me, it's been incredibly helpful to have something to work toward, and helped me better prioritize my own writing.

Love to join here is brief sample of writing.

Worship the Warship.
From out of a clear blue day the recommisioned warship, Worship steamed into kokoma harbour at five past eleven in the morning just before lunch.
The admiral of the fleet whose name was Michelle had recently been given command of the warship and as was her wont. She had ther crew execute maneauvour 26, which was two interwoven loops that looked somewhat like a butterfly or moth.
Later or Michelle had a pie for lunch and commended the sailors under her command for dressing very nicely and said they could have the rest of the day off to get their nails done or perhaps get nice dress in the style of Marilyn monroe or Betty Grable.
The sailors leapt at the chance to stretch their landlegs and threw their hats into the air several times until a swarm of moths swooped in and took wing with their funny little hats.
The admiral who was making a surprise inspection made all of the sailors walk the plank for something to do and his daughter also had to walk the plank... although she had just had her hair done and so she wasn't too pleased about it.
