Same boat, Nymph.

Better luck next time for all of us whose partnerships didn't work out.

Same as well.

Best of luck to all those partnerships that have worked out, and for another time to those of us whose partnerships didn't.

I'm pretty happy with my new pairing, as I was with my last.  This one may well have a slower start than the first but it will be going somewhere.

My best wishes for everyone who gave it a shot, and I hope that that those of you for whom it didn't click this time will stick around and try again.

Please remember this is a Lottery folks, not a matchmaking exercise. So, please keep an open mind when receiving your assigned partner. While we understand that the draw might not always work out in your favour, that's kind of the point of taking a risk and taking part in the first place.

No one is asking anyone to write things that make them uncomfortable but we would ask that everyone gives their chosen partner and their ideas fair consideration before deciding not to continue. If it doesn't work out, which definitely can happen, you can politely say no, but it is helpful for me as the person running this to know about these things for the future. Please do contact me privately should there be someone in this event that you definitely can not see yourself having a viable partnership with.

Lastly, please let this thread be used for encouragement and the sharing of ideas, as was intended. We do not want to air dirty laundry or complain about partners here publicly as it's rather easy to find out who one is talking about, please PM myself or Amaris if there are issues.

We hope you are having a blast and want this to continue as a fun and exciting way to write with others!

Thank you!

The whole idea is so much fun! The excitement waiting to see who is your partner and then connecting and seeing what might happen.

If it didn't work out this time I'm not worried. I'm excited to try again!

I really appreciate the work you two have been putting into this. I really hope it continues on gaining in popularity. :)

I've enjoyed browsing the participant profiles because sometimes I don't like to read the lengthier writing preference profiles elsewhere on E. The smaller profiles are kind of like a cover to larger ones that might interest me. I'm always looking for like minded roleplayers to avoid becoming an inactive one.

As someone who is never very good at reaching out to prospective partners, this takes some of the weight off meeting new people. :-)  I've enjoyed the discussions, and maybe learned a bit more about that sometimes elusive 'something' that keeps me writing and found myself with a couple of ideas for the future even from the one that didn't quite reach that point of agreement.

I'm glad that I signed up, both times.

This is basically the bane of my existence. So I'll probably never drop out of the lottery.

Thanks for all the lovely feedback, everyone. <3 So happy to hear so many of you are enjoying the Lottery so far.

And! I've updated the story listing for the September partnerships, lots of awesome Halloween themed tales this month it seems. ;D If you and your partner have started your story, don't forget to PM me a link so I can get it added.

Added a few more stories, both from the current draw and the previous one ;D

And don't forget, if you find yourself reading along with anyone's story, do think about leaving them some words of encouragement for them here in the feedback thread. <3
