Birthday Week has arrived and the first two events are up on going!
Make sure to check them out!


There's the "Give a Haiku" Contest where you see how many haikus you can share on your friend's walls before Saturday comes! Use the hashtag #YWSBirthdayHaiku if you'd like & record them in the contest thread for a chance at the grand prize!

We also have @Panikos' 15 Word Story Contest! Get your plot maps out and give it a try, just remember you only have 15 words to tell your story so make them count! :)

Don't miss these last opportunities to celebrate YWS's 15th Birthday!

Monkeys vs Dragons Round II will start over in the chatroom on (10 pm GMT)

And while you're prepping for those quiz questions, you still have time to vote for your favorite YWS mascot! (I highly recommend @TheEgg though am not biased at all)

The Birthday Resources Article is still looking for entries, give your perspective on birthdays right here.
