@Carina -- I posted and did mention the spa was starting to pool with water. Moira's going to be so traumatized.

I did backtrack and say the other spa attendants left to find help so we don't have to worry about explaining what happened to them.

Also, I definitely want Moira's post five to be when the spa is completely submerged, so it's up to you whether you all want to lead up to that or also have it be submerged.

And next week... the beach!

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

I posted! I wanted Eliza to try and get out because it's part of her character, but unfortunately, it's hopeless.

I felt like crying when writing this. It's so sad!

But I am super excited to get to the beach!

So we won't find an exit even though Jack is barking at them to find one lol but feel free to make it kind of ambiguous so we can circle back to this later!

Gosh... this is sad now, but it's going to way sadder when they see all the floating dead bodies at the beach...

Sounds good. Like I've said, I want Moira's post to be when they're completely submerged, so I would prefer to go to last. Because @vereen posted, one of us can post 4 times this week, or we can go over 1, doesn't make a difference to me. @HarryHardy @Valkyria will you two be able to get posts in tonight/tomorrow and then I'll slide one in after?

Let me know!

I am ready for sand, sun, ocean and survival.

WOOOO ON TO WEEK 2! All the posts have been great <3

Here are the numbers so far:

Image

On Monday, we'll have our characters wake up on the beach, not remembering exactly what happened or how they survived. I think it's fair game if they're injured, but it won't be anything life-threatening.

Also, let's say the time is 7pm-ish? So it's been a few hours, but the sun hasn't quite set yet so they'll have time to react to stuff.

That sounds good to me! Not that our characters would know what time it is of course, but it'll be good for us to know the sun will be setting soon. Since pretty soon that's pretty much the only way they're going to have to pass the time...

Can't wait!

How is everyone doing? I have a pretty good sense of what I want to post, but figured I would give others a chance to. We're on the beach now, and I think it's probably best for a couple weeks at least we keep things simple. Focused on survival, processing the situation. And then our characters can slowly get restless and start to explore. If anyone wants to do another planning session, let me know! I'm game.

I know I've posted first the past two weeks, but there's no posting order so I hope no one was waiting for me asdjkffhs

Not sure if anyone's noticed, but I tend to post at late evening at the earliest lol. I'll get one in later tonight!

I'm also down for another pad session if we need one :')

The idea that a poem was a made thing stayed with me, and I decided then that I wanted to be an artist, not just a diarist. So I put myself through a kind of apprenticeship in writing poetry, and I understood even then that my practice as a poet was deeply related to my reading.
