    Lest we forget In case you are wondering what this is, it is something that is done in countries around the world, but my exposure has always been in Canada. Today is November 11th and Remembrance Day. It is a day to reflect on those that have served and still serving for their countries. It doesn't matter what side they were on, they were willing to put their own lives on the line to defend what they believed in. This year also marks the 100th Anniversary of Armistice, the end of the 1st World War. Different countries have different names, but it is all for the same reason. Please share a Canadian Tradition; On the 11th hour on the 11th day, or the 11th month, take a personal 2 minutes of silence to honour all of those whom stood up for all of us and those that continue to do so. ' Apologies to those around the globe that the day has mainly past So, shall we now take a look at the week in review?

  22. Before we even get started with the wrap up, I want to say: Graeme!!!!!! Graeme has been a long time member of GA's staff, and has been promoted to Site Administrator as well as Author Promotion Team Leader. We are very happy to have him as part of our team, so please visit the announcement thread to congratulate Graeme on his well deserved promotion! Now, for some other news. I don't usually use the staff blogs for personal stuff, but the time has come for me to say farewell, for a while at least. Baby J is due in just a few short weeks and, for the next few months, I will be focusing on him and my family. I will be back, but for the time being, the other Admins have graciously agreed to take over my site duties. That's not to say you'll never see me in the online user list, but this will be my last blog post for a while (other than the prompts this Friday which are already scheduled). @wildone will be doing the Weekly Wrap Up for me, while the other Admins will handle the various other blog posts. If you have any questions, please direct them to one of them, otherwise you might be waiting a rather long time for a reply. If you wish to send content in for a blog post, including Improve & Encourage features (which we're currently out of), please send them to one of the other Admins and they'll make sure it gets to the right person for inclusion in the blog. Anything author promotion related, should now be directed to @Graeme. @Cia has agreed to field any anthology related questions. In case I don't see you for a while, I hope y'all have an awesome summer!!!!! I'm sure mine will be plenty busy . Now, let's see what happened this week, and if you haven't already checked out the anthologies, please do so! Please note: The blog opportunities are temporarily shortened, due to the majority of them requiring info from me.

    Weekly Wrap Up (May 20 - May 26)

    I hope you all have had a great week this week! Have you had a chance to check out the Spring Anthology yet? Nine brand new stories for you to sink your teeth into. Before we get started this week, a couple of reminders for you: Reminder #1: New authors are automatically put into the moderation queue and have to be approved by staff. Please read the FAQ on posting stories prior to uploading your first story. One common mistake new authors to the site make is uploading multiple chapters, if not all, of their story at once. We ask that you please not do this as only one chapter a day will be approved, providing the story meets site quidelines. In the end, it may even make more work for the author if changes are necessary before the chapter can be approved. Once out of the moderation queue, authors can post up to two chapters a day, but those chapters must be spaced at least eight hours apart so as not to flood the story update list. Reminder #2: There are certain perks to being a promoted author here at GA. One of those perks is having your weekly story updates in the Weekly Wrap Up. Please, if you are not a promoted author, refrain from posting your story updates in the comments of the Weekly Wrap Up. We are happy to help you showcase your work in the various GA blogs, all you have to do is sign up for one of the many opportunities that we offer. These can be found in the “Blog Opportunities” section of each Weekly Wrap Up. Otherwise, you are welcome to use status updates, a forum thread (one per story), or even a personal blog to notify readers of updates.
