Welcome to July, folks! It's only getting hotter and hotter, and so are the challenges! Sadly, we had no nominations for this month's theme of Summer Reading, so I really don't have any suggested summer reading for you. :( Bad pun intended. That's how sad I feel about this.


Because August 2nd is National Friendship Day, the theme for August is Friendship! This means that we're looking for stories with a focus on friendships and platonic relationships. This is not to say that the nomination can't have any romantic involvement, but we'd like to see some friendship, too! Nominate here on the backup forums.

Now, some of you may have noticed that the forums are up! Whoo! That's great news! Until we get the "go ahead" from Sally, though, we'd like to stick with the backup one, just in case the site's forum gets glitchy again. :'D You're free to use it, but use at your own risk.

For our Fallen Fairytales challenge, we have an honorable mention:

Cinderella by Tsula (Law and Order, 17+)

And, of course, there is a new featured challenge: Summer Sweethearts!

So we all know rumors about summers and relationships. You meet people on vacation, at band camp, on a business trip, and even though the look in their eyes makes you swoon, you know the relationships will never last. Time to go back and dream.

Think of your favorite fictional character and write. It can be a reader-insert if you think there might be others who like this character or it can be told in any other perspective. It can have a happy ending or a sad ending. Go back to a time when you remember loving these characters and write for them as you have never written for them before.

Have fun with the challenge! Enjoy your August!

That is all. Please let us know if you have any questions. Have a good May!
