The thread to request drabbles for next month is not up yet, but should be soon. If you have a birthday in June, be on the lookout for it.
This week's focus:
One of the best ways to get involved at HASA is through our forums. People are discussing research questions and stories as well as having fannish squees regularly there.
Some useful forum links:
"On Our Minds" displays the ten most recent posts in forums open to all HASA members. It's a good way to catch up on what you've missed, though the page can move quickly when lots of forums are active at once.
If you've been out of touch for longer than a few days you might want to use the "One Month of Posts" page. This page has just what it sounds like: a list of forums that have been posted to in the last month, beginning with the most recently updated.
Workshops are specialized writing communities. They allow you to share stories you aren't ready to post to the whole site, and many have interesting forums attached to them. Explore workshops to find a group of members interested in similar topics. (You must be logged in to see this link.)
Now, here are some of the most recently-updated threads in HASA forum. Don't be shy. If any interest you, why not jump in?
May 2008 Birthdays (in HASA Birthday Card Forum)
Question About Avari Elves – Physical Appearance (in Research Questions)
Science in Middle-earth (in Prospective Challenges)
Here's hoping this week finds you having many interesting discussion about all things Tolkien. Because, really, you were trying to cut back on sleep anyway, right?
Until next time,
