Once upon a time, November started, and DG realized this signaled the start of NaNo. What she did not
realize was that this meant November started, and she was supposed to change the features. That's why this is late. Sorry, guys! |D;;
On a related, but no less important note, before we get to features: the queue for submitted stories is really, really long at the moment, for a number of reasons. We're still getting lots of submissions, and with the start of November, a few of the mods are probably doing NaNoWriMo
, a giant time-eater. (You should do it too. It's a good experience, gives you something be proud about, and is a good use for all those ideas floating around your head.
It also gives us less work if you're too busy writing a novel to post anything.
) Add that to the normal load of schoolwork, and it bears repeating that stories may take as long as two weeks
to be validated, maybe longer, though we haven't reached that point yet. To help speed things along, a quick reminder of the rules: if you're not a validated author, do not
submit the next chapter of a story before the previous chapter has been validated. Also, as a general guideline, if you feel your story has been in the queue for a long while, it might be a good idea to review it again and fix any errors you find; if it's sort of borderline, it's likely to hang around in the queue longer.
After that entirely too long speech... featured stories! The theme for November is non-reader-inserts~
