Caption This Challenge! Halloween Two... too? Edition

This challenge was so popular two weeks ago and we have another open blog today, so I thought we'd have some more Halloween fun. It's almost here! It's a super simple challenge that helps get your creative juices flowing... write a caption for this image below that tells a story and share it in the blog comments. You have just 30 words or less to share what you think is happening in the picture. Narrate the scene, give a spooky reason why those jack-o-lantern's are clustered there, or give us a

Last Post Wins

Last Post Wins   This year, the topic Last Post Wins (found in Forum Games and Humor) celebrates it’s ninth year and is probably the longest running game with thousands of replies and a few hundred pages.   The first post starting the game was on June 7, 2007 by Razor. The rules are simple, the last person to make a post is the winner.   One of the past rounds lasted for over a year before it was finally closed to declare a winner. The shortest amount of time has been a month. On average a

Author Scramble

We haven't done a "fun" blog post for a while, so I thought maybe it was time to bring them back. However, instead of doing a crossword or a word search, I decided to do an Author Scramble. Now, to make this a little bit harder, I've removed all capitalization. I'll reveal the answers in the Weekly Wrap Up on Sunday. I'm not going to reveal how I chose the authors, as that would make it much too easy. Have fun!!!!   mcgfaitmron   rberot rxe   diunknq   lwmof

Word Search #4: Halloween

A couple of days early, but I decided to have a little fun with Halloween on the horizon. We haven't done a word search for a while, but rather than do something site specific, I thought it would be fun to do one based on Halloween. Also, I wanted to make it a little harder, so not only is it a word search, but it is also a word scramble. In order to get the hidden words, unscramble the word list and then find the words in the Word Search. As always, I've included the excel document as well. Hav

Word Search #3: Anthology Themes

It's been a while since I've done a crossword or a word search, and thought maybe it was time to do another. In honor of the current "Anthology Theme Suggestions", I decided to do a word search using all the past Anthology Themes. Due to the sheer number of past themes (47 in all), this word search is a bit bigger than normal. Enjoy, and good luck!   Anthology Themes Word Search.xlsx

Word Search #2: Promising Authors

Who's ready for the next Word Search? Today's Word Search features the Promising Authors here at Gay Authors. Each Promising Author appears once as well as one of their stories. As always, I've included both the image of the Word Search as well as a downloadable excel format. If you have ideas for future Word Searches or Crosswords, feel free to send me a PM!
