A friendly message from your Grouchy Cannibal Hippy. I know I have let a lot of blogs slide past me this past month while I've been working on Camp NaNo. I promise I shall give them all mah loves when I'm done. Hugs to all mah Hippies and mah Wolfies! Good luck to all participating in this final stretch of Camp NaNo.

Why not, as long as it helps. Don't forget Axius everyone is more than welcome to use these for help within their story. If you have a problem and it fits a particular Writer's discussion then ask away.

Comment by Axius Revan on Friday

I sense a Writer's Discuss coming soon...

Comment by Sotek on Friday

Axius, you've given me an idea.

Comment by Axius Revan on Friday

Lately my story has been pulled to a slow crawl. It's not because I don't have any ideas, but I don't know how to 'connect' them. I need some tips so I could get back in the game.

Comment by Sotek on Thursday

Good for you Ben and its great to see Okan here. Been a while Okan, hope things are going well for you.

On another note. NANO Camp's end is coming in faster than Red chasing deer. Get writing people...

Comment by Ben W on Thursday

Chapter 10 has been released; Yay 

Comment by Ben W on April 25, 2016 at 2:36pm

Aye, guys, it's strange of me to ask but could anyone take a peek at the Blog and Editing services for the posting I gave the other day? I hate asking due to not wanting to bother anyone

Comment by Justiciar Thorien on April 23, 2016 at 5:49pm

Warn us in advance when to bring apples and when hearts))))) Or should we set a schedule?
