Weekly Wrap Up (Jan 15 - Jan 21)

Posted by , in Weekly Update January 22, 2017 · 34 views

Weekly Update

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. It's been a busy week here at Gay Authors, but before I get into the weekly wrap up I wanted to post a reminder of sorts. With the recent staff changes, I wanted to take a minute to mention the various teams and the staff they're made up of. This list can also be found in the Help & Announcements forum. A huge thank you goes out to the site staff, all of who are volunteers, for donating their time to keep GA running smoothly.

Now, let's take a look at what happened in the various GA news blogs this past week.

 

For signature week, we started out the week with the announcement of our featured Signature Author. This month we focused on Cynus and his story From the Cup of the Worthless. If you want to learn more about the story, you can find the description, reader reviews, and a small banner in Monday's post; and an excerpt in the Wednesday blog.

 

If you're looking for some inspiration, then check out the Friday prompts. While you're there, take a minute and check out the featured prompt responses that we chose to share this week. If neither of the new prompts spark an idea, you can always check out the past prompts in the prompt forum. With well over 500 prompts, you should find something to inspire your muse.

 

Are you thinking about doing the upcoming 2017 Spring Anthology? Have you already started? Stop by the monthly Anthology Discussion Day and share your progress with other authors that are in the same position as you.

feels weird to see my name up there as part of a GA team. :*)

Hey gang, none of the story links seem to be working.

Check your settings, sis. The ones I tried work for me. If all else fails, REBOOT! :D

Hey gang, none of the story links seem to be working.

 

If you're using IE, that may be the reason. I've finally changed to Chrome after Myr told me to do so for the twentieth time (very patiently :*) ).

I am pretty sure my phone uses chrome. The pretty colored circle, right? Lol you guys know I am technologically challenged! Anyway, all the links seem to be working fine now.

And IE's replacement, Edge, has a ton of issues with a lot of websites including GA too. Definitely better off using Chrome for Firefox when on GA.

Thanks Renee :*)  :hug:

Yeah somehow my rants have now been provided an air of legitimacy :rofl:

No but seriously I'm super excited about it.

And you have been a great help, so Thank you!!!

Like the others who have replied, all the links I've clicked on have worked, so it is very possible that it is because of the browser you are using.

 

 

Thanks Renee :*)   :hug:   

 

No thanks needed, you and the rest of the GA staff definitely deserve to be recognized once in a while. Thank you again! :hug:
