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! :)

In my opinion you commit an error. I can defend the position. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
