Well, we kinda know how this has gone. We're already in the 20s on a February, and while I could throw out a rough draft for a radio play in three days, it takes a bit longer to actually sculpt it into something worth reading/hearing. But I just took a look at the page, and hot-damn if it ain't a 31 March deadline. And a month and a week is tenable. It'll be like NanoWrimo in its own way.

So, that said...I dunno. I think I'm going to dredge back into my old grad student exercises and see what arises, which means I won't be able to say what I'll be doing until I actually dredge up some stuff from the siltstands of my mind. I suspect it'll eventually be something about being in a new place, or dealing with a feeling of having wasted one's life (I'm all right, it's simply a topic), or something completely different. I'll keep folks updated, though.

Ah good, thanks for reposting that link. Saves me having to hunt back through your LJ for it. :) And yes, I hadn't realized it was so late in the month either. Whew!

Needless to say, I haven't started yet either. I did originally have an idea for one--or rather, when I saw your first post about it I thought, "Hm, [idea I'd had for something else] would probably work really nicely as a radio play," but now I've forgotten which idea that was about. I have to go back through my more recent stories and ideas and see if I can remember, or else just come up with a new idea from scratch.

Dredging, eh? Okay. Get to dredging, you! And yes, I am going to keep pestering you about this. :)
