Flashbacks and the End of the Busy Month

I finished judging the contest entries I'm judging (different from the contest I'm coordinating). I had five ST entries and THREE of them were written in flashbacks! What's up with that? And in one, the present day story was awesome, but the flashback story (she flipflopped) was less so. My comment was that, according to the synopsis, she had enough going on without the flashback story, and to weave it in some other way.

My busy month is over. All I have this week is Pam Morsi's booksigning, and I'm thinking of signing up for BIAW. This morning, though, I've got to hit the grocery store and clean the bathrooms.

Who do you do BIAW through? I'm intrigued by the thought... I've been stuck in editing blues, and need something to spark my creativity. I LOVE NaNo, so BIAW may be a good answer...

Marianne, my chapter does a BIAW. I went ahead and signed up, hoping it will give me the momentum to continue during Spring Break.
