Weekly Wrap Up (May 14 - May 20)



For some reason today I am giddy :D Not sure why. Maybe you can think up a reason why Steve is giddy today. Let me know?

Here is a straw poll, with just over two months to go until the publishing of the Secret Author Contest, who thinks they will write one? WAIT. Full stop, it won't be a secret if you tell everyone here that you will be writing. Unless you are up to trickery and have no plans to write and post that you are going to write. :devil:

It was pretty quiet this week on the GA News Blog this week. Hoping some of our usual contributors had a nice relaxing week. Val and Comsie had you covered :2thumbs: 

The Weekly Wrap Up was up this week until Thursday. Then Val shared one of the more favourite contest we've had here at GA in the past:

Val was back again on Friday, with two new prompts. At least one of them was translated into German ;) Never know who will write a prompt though :unsure:

Who could forget Comicality's article of the week? Well to be honest, me :( When doing up this draft, I realized I missed out on putting it in here. All fixed before publishing time :) 

Now I will let you all in on a little secret. One that I don't think would make it into the Secret Author Contest. Myr isn't actually up at 4 in the morning everyday to post the Word of the Day :gikkle: So here is a look back at the week of prompts.

Be sure to check out Steve's response to PT Prompt #134.  Maybe if enough people comment, he'll write another chapter ;)
