Every Saturday night I will put up a reminder post for the next week. If someone forgets to post that they've done their writing for the day, the next person will know it's their turn and can post after they've done their writing.

For example, it's 05 November and skargasm hasn't made a post saying that they've done their daily writing, on 06 November, simplyn2deep can post when they've done their writing to keep things moving on.

I think I've covered everything, but if not, please let me know.
