Can I post in here now?

Thanks you so much for voting me. And thanks group 11. Good Eatin' and Lard Butt gave me a run for my money. This was such a strong group and I was humbled to be apart of it. I'm hoping to see each one of these stories feature in the Acceptance Thread very soon.

And Dan - Don't think I've thanked you and the team yet. But really, this is my introduction to CD and I've been humbled by how many great writers entered, and how strong, even in its infancy, the support for one and other is on the forum.

Congrats to all the final 11, and special thanks for those who gave me restless nights. :)

Way to go Craig! I noticed when I read your story that you have a very good command of the language. And many other stories that stood out this way, I noticed, were from other writers from the UK. Jeez, you guys act like you invented the language or something!

Hahahaha. Thanks, Terry. And thanks EVERYONE - Being in England makes me a little tardy with responses. 6am here. Work awaits, but seriously, thank you.

Ha... I used to work as an editor at a televsion company and was required to do the "guide" voiceovers to assist the editing process. One person compared my voice to sounding like a pedophile with a cold. :D

I grew up in Manchester, Salford. Very rough part of the UK. I had a Manc twang for years (think of the two brothers from the band Oasis), then I moved around a lot and it went. I live in Yorkshire now where it's all Eee-By-Gum.

Recently was asked to record one of my stories for spoken word. I hate the sound of my voice so I distorted it in post production, and now it sounds like Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs is reading it. "Put the cookies in the basket!"

Congratulations. Lard Butt was my first story ever, so I'm happy that I even got any votes at all. I learned a heck of a lot cutting it down. I mistakenly thought 10,000 words, and when I realized characters, I thought oh crap. Lost a few characters, and the double spaces. But it was sure a great learning experience. Good luck in the finals!

Thanks, Jon. Really enjoyed your story, and i hear you about editing. Can't remember the original word count for 13, but I had to hack large paragraphs out to get it down to fit within the post. I remember i was one word off at one stage and searching around looking to nix something but couldn't even find a "a" or "so" or anything that could go.

Good luck with getting Lard Butt accepted somewhere else (or maybe here, in the near future :)).
