Weekly Wrap Up (Jun 25 - Jul 1)



RIP Carlos Hazday

After the news the previous week of hearing of the passing of Carlos Hazday, one of the sites most prolific authors from him contributing in so many ways, we held off on the GA News Blog to give everyone the time and Carlos the small amount of respect we could afford him. In case you haven't been on site for a few weeks, here is the blog that was created to acknowledge him and his life as we know it.


Saturday marked the close of the Secret Author contest submitted entries. Just in case you are not over the International Date Line, like in Hawaii, you might have a chance to get your story in after this blog makes it's appearance. I'm pretty sure @Cia knows how many entries we have had submitted but as seems to be the theme of this contest, it remains a secret :gikkle:. Let's anxiously wait to see what and who contributed an entry.

We started back up the blogs again on Thursday where Cia did one last effort to get in any stray stories of the contest. Did you get yours in? :lmao: 

Friday, Aditus brought all of us a couple of new prompts on Prompt Friday:

On Saturday, Comicality was back again with another writing article for everyone to learn from, and enjoy:


Myr started to bring us back the Word of the Day on Monday, so here is a look at the new and whacky, well more the comments, entries he had:

gnarled, concave, chafe, soporific, peculate, sybarite

  9. Inherited by lomax61 **Complete** @Mancuniansaid, "A true action/mystery that grips your imagination and keeps you guessing from start to finish. The finely interwoven plot lines are expertly written and executed. Every chapter answers questions that the reader will ask, but they will also leave you with more questions and keep you coming back for more. Our main character, Gabriel Redbrick, is a man with a past, a dark past that he is unaware of, does he want to know of his past or not? Will he discover the dark secrets of his past, or will he remain unaware? Only Gabriel can answer those questions, and you will only find out by reading. I will give you this warning, get yourself comfortable with a drink and a snack because once you start you will not want to stop reading. This is a highly recommended read deserving of more than five stars."
