What a fantastic thing occurred here this summer. In years past, this site has been near dormant as we all headed to the woods and ocean and lake, to a summer less filled with obligations and, gulp, school. This year not so.
Dozens of you were on this site every day writing, commenting, responding (occasionally) to the daily narrative prompts we presented for you. And what you produced has been downright impressive. (Check out the writing here: S2014)
So thank you. For all that you shared.
A few numbers: The site averaged 750+ visits a day this summer. Some of your stories got 2,000 - 3,000 reads -- a lot for ANY site! You wrote a total of 290 stories, some of which, we know, aren't finished, and we look forward to more.
We announced June prize winners, July prize winners and, soon, we'll announce overall winners. YAY!
AND more challenges to come as we begin a new year, so stay tuned. (And if you have any ideas, post them, or drop us a private message or an email!)
And remember ... JUST WRITE IT!
