Tying Up Loose Ends, Volume One- Cidnie Needs Us, Again!

              "Just want to make it real- good, bad or indifferent..."
                                                              -John Mellencamp




        The most basic difference between fiction and non-fiction writing is that fiction has a plot.

        That is what makes it interesting, which can very rarely be said of non-fiction, blogs included.

        (Hold your hatemail, fellow bloggers- I include myself in the above bald generalization.  If we're all gonna be honest here, some like how-to and what-we-did-last-weekend tales, some don't.)

        However, sometimes, with a little effort, you can force a plot onto real life.  Bring back a popular character,  tie up a story arc,  publish posts out of sequence to create suspense....

       ...Okay, it ain't gonna make this trainwreck into Wuthering Heights, but it's not like you're paying for it.

     Anyflashback, let's take a look at where one of our most popular characters is now:

     Remember Cidnie, of Ceol Mor and cute kids and cool photography and Dyneema Experience fame?

     Well, thanks in no small part to the efforts of you, beloved readers, she is currently holding the top spot in the Dyneema Experience!!!!

    But, it is close... really, really close.  Cidnie has 37 points- the loser  skipper behind her has 36.  It all comes down to this final Challenge.  Each skipper had to make a video summarizing their experience with the Dyneema Experience.

Cidnie's is here:

  It's really simple- the skipper with the largest number of warm bodies on their team and the largest number of views of their video wins.  So, follow Cidnie, watch the video, and tell your friends to watch the video.  Better yet, just email the link to everybody in your address book.

  Come on, it's not like you haven't forwarded them worse stuff.
