College and schoolwork has drained any sign of life and/or outside action for this current time. GPA first, newground's writing contests second. Maybe in the future, but I DO have a solid week to relax after X-mas.
Well, if you're able to judge an entry per week while the contest is active, then finish it all off over the Xmas break, then all for the better. I'm aiming to get the results for the new contest released around New year '11, along with a new contest. I've had a wake up call, but I need inspiration for new contests in the New Year.
While I loved the Mark Twain contest, I'll have to work on getting the first chapter of 500 words or so written and edited, so it would work. I have some ideas for there, but it's not available for the immediate future.
Also, we have a list of judges approaching completion for November / December:

Well I am from California in the Pacific (UTC-8) timezone so I am 8 hours behind the UK. I would like to be a judge however. What are the qualifications?
Generally, I don't think too many qualifications can really be looked at - I'd like to see well thought out BBS posts, a bit of their own writing (which you certainly fulfil) and enthusiasm. If you're up for it, we could be looking at a set of judges for this contest.
Now all I've got to do is close July's contest, before setting this ball in motion. I'm getting there, but a cold for the past few days has set me back a day or three. I can do this though!
