No-one has suggested a St Valentine's Day story yet, but I'm up for it.

We have a very interesting crop of stories we're harvesting at present. More than one is a tough read. One of those seems lighter, yet is not, and is published posthumously.

Today's set has been published, as usual. The 'story' so far is below:

Sets 1 - 6: 7 items
Sets 7 - 9: 6 items
Sets 10 - 14: 5 items
Sets 15 - 17: 3 items
Sets 18 - 25: 2 items
Sets 26 - 60: 1 item

No submissions yet for Black and White Boys, though one is promised so far.

I'm happy to do a Valentine's Special if enough folk enjoy writing one, otherwise I'll sneak the Valentine's tales in 'somehow'.

Things look calm in the queue area:

Sets 1 - 5: 7 items
Sets 6 - 8: 5 items
Sets 9 - 16: 3 items
Sets 17 - 24: 2 items
Sets 26 - 51: 1 item

The long tail is to handle a three volume tale. Yes, there are 51 more chapters in that set of books. As you can see there is a just short of two week queue now for new work. That's ok, though not optimal. I prefer one week's worth of queue. The less obvious news is that there is room for two new items in set 6, and space for more opens up very fast

Black & White boys has one entry. I have at least one more promised.

The next challenge is previewed on the home page. Not a picture, it incorporates an excellent idea by a forum member.

Timmy, thank you for for the weekly updates.  

Three years ago, I was very discouraged with the progress of updates here.  Now the site runs like clockwork (or so it appears to us on the outside)  You and Megaman have done wonders in streamlining things.  Long may the site run smoothly!

I think we were all concerned at the publishing rate. Megaman has created a scheme behind the scenes that lets me publish almost as simply as pressing a button. There's more to it than that, but it is not hugely arduous

Thank you for your praise, I appreciate it. We'll still have problems form time to time, but they are foreseeable, probably!
