Weekly Wrap Up (Jan 29 - Feb 4)
I hope everyone is ready for the new week to begin. But before that, we have to wrap up the last week. A quick reminder for all site authors. You have less than a month to get your April Fool's Day short story in if you want to be part of the contest. Entries are due March 1st and don't forget not to share anything about your story outside of your team. Now, let's recap the last week!
C S R Discussion Day: The Pledge By Mikiesboy
We started the week and ended the month with the CSR Discussion Day. From the looks of it, a lot of people read The Pledge and we had a great turnout. If you wanted to know more about Mikiesboy and/or the story, check out the brief interview and the remarks from other readers!
Ask An Author #46
What better way to start out a new month than the Ask An Author feature provided to us by Dark. This month featured authors Comicality, Mann Ramblings, Mikiesboy, and Parker Owens. Curious as to what they were asked and what their answers were? Here's your chance to find out if you missed it earlier. And don't forget to send Dark some questions for your favorite authors.
Prompts #554 & #555
Last, but not least, we finished the week off with a couple of new prompts. Both of them this week were creative, and hopefully they'll spark an idea and help you get writing. As always, we featured some responses from last week.
