First things first - announcements time!!!
Renee announced on the 20th of August that she is looking for theme suggestions for the 2013 GA Anthologies. If you have a suggestion for a theme, now is the time to let her know via the thread in the Anthology Forum. Suggestions will be taken until midnight (US Mountain Time) September 3rd and then this topic will be locked. Once all suggestions are in, a team will narrow it down to twenty themes for the GA Members to vote on. Why wait, get your suggestions in now!!!
Also - only 9 days left for our FALL Anthology entries. The "Friends and Enemies" anthology is due September 4 - that's like, next Tuesday.
And now - on to our week in review...
We started the week looking at Hosted Author C James's epic tale, Circumnavigation. Yours truly did a review of this fantastic story, that as of today is at 133 chapters comprised of 913,031 words. It is wrapping up soon, so if this is one that passed you by, now is the perfect time to jump in and see the ending (soon) with the rest of us.
Tuesday, we once again had the pleasure of seeing what happens when Podiumdavis is let loose - he came up and executed a fantastic two part series with part one this past Tuesday, and part two coming up in two days. He contacted various authors and asked them how they would do "Your Story as a Movie" - with both casted characters and music. He includes IMDB and youtube links for the actors and music.
Wednesday, we got great reviews - LouisHarris did a wonderful review of Promising Author WrathofMagneto's Slide, and Andy021278 did a superb review of The Other Foot, by Author Forty-Two. We really appreciate all of the guest reviewers and the efforts they go to, to help us highlight great stories here on GayAuthors.
Myr helped out on Thursday with a tip about "Keeping Your Writing Life in Sync (and backed up)" - some good advise to help you NOT lose your precious writing work.
Our weekly prompts, thanks as always to the wonderful Comicfan, are already causing quite a few authors to try to figure out how to squeeze a 25th hour into their day so they can try them out. Even just the simple titles of the prompts are intriguing - "The Stranger" and "Extinct". Why don't you check them out and see what you may come up with?
Finally, we ended the week looking back to a humorous article that originally ran in our December 2006 newsletter, "Famously Unfortunate Quotations".
So - how was your week?
