Any of the days would be fine, but the time is terrible for me - the uproar if I dared to spend a couple hours on the computer beginning at 5pm is just not worth it.

I hope you guys will post a transcript.

I second the transcript, because 5pm for you lot is 11pm for me, and that's far too late for me to be trying to learn stuff even on weekends.

I realise the time difference between Europe and here, and see my reply to Vox. Am quite happy to do one-to-one sessions!

Yes, we'll post a transcript, and I'm also happy to go through it all with you on a one-to-one basis or something like that at a time we can both agree on.

Sorry, I had to click the "perfection" option. I just had to. (Because as you know, it isn't.)

*grins*

You're one of the two people targeted to receive the notes beforehand with the request to add/change it. I know you're busy, but, yeah. I'm just that selfish. I gave you reprieve for your birthday, that's good, no? :) <3 <3 <3

And that's one of the many reasons I love you.

And if you need physical help, say the word. I'm not a 20-yr-old fitness kind of person, but I do get things done. <3

::squishes you back::

Aren't you supposed to be asleep or something? If you're that awake, post more of your fics to TPP, okay?

The dog woke me up for a walk, since I fell asleep before her normal walk time. (poor baby)

So I am precisely awake enough to babble and clean up poo. Higher order things, such as posting chapters in order, will have to wait until I am awake and coherent.

But no worries - I have you on my list for Gifts and the Exchange thing this week.

Babbling is good, too. Walking of course is splendid. Not sure about cleaning up poo.

Your Plans sound good, though!

I'm neither a new author nor a new beta, but that doesn't mean I couldn't do with refreshing some things.
I'll probably have to read the transcript though as my fandom activities are extremely limited at the moment.

I will post notes after the workshop. And you know you can always ask any questions, and between the admins, we're likely to find an answer. :)

Count me in. Either of the Sundays would be better for me than the Saturdays, but I'll probably be able to make it on a Saturday if necessary.

It'll definitely be on a Sunday; am just not certain which one, since at the moment, both Sundays have equal votes. I'll try get my head around this and decide tomorrow. :)

Wah! I have the same problem with the time. I am interested in the transcript too. One-on-one? That might be good. Atm I don't even know my job schedule for next week, the louts. Sigh.

Transcript will be available, and it's likely I'll offer another one at a radically different time, as many people have said neither day nor time suits them. That said, I don't think you'd learn anything from this basic workshop. If there is interest, I may do another, more advanced one, probably in the new year. :)

This sounds like something that I could use but both these weekends I have stuff going on. Company this weekend, then going out of town next weekend. So if there is some kind of transcript I would be interested. :)

There are quite a few people who aren't happy with the day, so chances are I'll offer one during the week at some stage during October. Notes will certainly be available, probably posted on here.

Thanks, usually weekends are OK for me. I hardly ever am doing anything on the weekend. Just happened that these two weeks are busy. :)
