Anthology Changes.... Again

First off, let me start by saying that the Anthology deadline of April 1st has been extended to May 31st!!!!  Hopefully that will give everyone time to write something for the anthology. So, what does that mean for the mid-year anthology?  Well, that deadline has now been extended to October 31st. Which leaves us with the Pre-2021 themes anthology. Sometimes we have to make some tough decisions, and it's become clear that the anthology participation has been declining for the past few

Anthology Entry Revisited: The Teacup

I'm going to try a new feature. This year, each story will get it's own day, in the future, it will depend on how many entries we have for the previous years anthologies. Sometimes, there might have to be two entries for each of these blogs. Each of these blogs will begin with a reminder of the upcoming anthology, and then we'll take a brief look at one of the anthology entries from the previous year. So, let's get started!!!

2021 Anthology #1 - Themes and Deadlines

So, this isn't going to be the full announcement for the 1st anthology of the year, but I did want to announce the themes and the deadline.  A more in depth announcement will occur after the current anthology is finished posting.  One thing I want to point out, for 2021 there will be two main themes per anthology and a pot luck. The pot luck includes MANY theme options for if you don't like the main theme options. The number of themes used this upcoming year will help determine the number of pot

Special Anthology Announcement: Anthology Deadline Extended

I'm going to make this quick. I've talked to @Valkyrie who heads up the Anthology Proof team for me. As of me writing this, we only have two entries for the upcoming anthology, which is pretty low considering it's only a week to the original deadline. After discussion with Val, we know that life is completely crazy right now and she advised me that she knows there are a few people that are trying to get stories done, but may run out of time. I will include myself in that number, but I wasn't goi

2020 Fall Anthology - Check In time!!!

Sorry y'all!  While I do have some blog entries that I could really get put up, school has been absolutely INSANE!!!! My instructor (I have the same one for all 3 classes this semester) is using a new program and since I do fairly good with it, somehow I keep getting asked to troubleshoot and see if things are working like they're supposed to. A little extra credit for this would be nice, but... oh well. Anyway, that hasn't been leaving me a lot of time for other stuff lately. With that bei

2021 Anthology Themes *Announcement*

Well, that's it for this years voting!  The voting was for the top 4 themes to use in the first two themes of the year 2021. The remaining themes have been put through the list randomizer at random.org and will be split up for the potluck for those same themes. Since there were 43 themes left over after the top themes were chosen, one anthology will have 21 themes in the potluck, and the other will have 22 themes. The third and final theme for the year will be a Pre-2021 Anthology Themes and won

2020 Fall Anthology

Hello Hello!!!!  So, I guess I should probably announce the fall anthology and it's themes. I posted previously about some of the changes for future anthologies. Some of those changes will be implemented with the fall anthology, but the majority won't happen until the 2021 anthologies. If you want a refresher on what is changing, you can check out the previous blog entry. Now, out of those changes, these are the ones that will be implemented for the 2020 Fall Anthology (though I made a cou

2021 Theme Selection Voting *Round 2*

Okay all, it's time for the final round of voting for the top themes for 2021!  All members are welcome to vote, you just have to join the Writer's Circle club. Voting will end on September 3rd. Also, don't forget to vote in both polls linked below. I have withheld my vote, so that in the case of a tie, I can cast my vote to break the tie. NOTE: All members can vote, but you HAVE to be a member of the Writer's Circle club for access to the polls!!! You can join using the link below:

Voting Help!!!

I need all y'all's help!  There's only room for two more themes in the 2nd round of voting. Unfortunately, the next set of highest of number of votes, has 3. I can only use two of them. Please answer this poll question. You can only pick 1 this time, and whichever two get the highest number of votes will make it into Round 2 of voting. I have not voted as of yet and will only do so in the case of another tie. Thanks all!!!!

2021 Theme Selection Voting *Round 1*

I was really undecided on how best to do the voting for theme selection for next year. We ended up with 47 theme suggestions for next year, all of which will be able to be used, but there will be extra incentive (to be determined before next year) for members to use the Top themes. If I had done a rating poll for every theme, it would have required a minimum of 10 polls, which just seemed to be way too many. So, our voting is going to be pretty much the same as in past years, except that voting
