I wrote them but they still need to be edited.
Comment by Lissette on Wednesday

Then we should be seeing those blog posts from you right away then, Caleb, seeing as you have all that material right there ready to post. Should be fun to read. I slapped my stuff for NaNoWriMo on Steam as I was writing. Finish a chapter, post on Steam. 

Comment by Ctfgaming on Wednesday
What I wrote for nano is the second half of flesh and bone and 20 short stories.

I swear next time something like this happens my local courier's getting flayed... Whiterun will not stand for such incompetence!
