sapphire: Any interest in a summer contest? It's that time of year again. May 21, 2015 12:36:45 GMT -6
sapphire: And our May Swift Scribbles prompt is up here! May 15, 2015 0:31:59 GMT -6
sapphire: You can never quite fully answer the question, either. I've written so many of those, and never really been satisfied. May 15, 2015 0:28:31 GMT -6
Raphael: It is so much fun May 14, 2015 20:50:07 GMT -6
Raphael: I think i am addicted to the genre May 14, 2015 20:49:45 GMT -6
sapphire: So we have four posts on the Why I Write board - by two people. I find it both amusing and not particularly surprising that the people who have tried it, tried it again. May 5, 2015 14:18:51 GMT -6
sapphire: The poll for April's Work of the Month is up here! Apr 26, 2015 12:45:01 GMT -6
crow.: pewp. i might try my hand at designing a couple when i get home today xD there's little photo editing or drawing to be done on an ipad lol Apr 22, 2015 6:34:46 GMT -6
sapphire: Aaaaand nope, not an option, unless someone feels like designing custom ones. Apr 21, 2015 14:20:37 GMT -6
sapphire: (Those smileys can be a bit annoying - I wonder if I can change them to a different style...) Apr 21, 2015 14:16:22 GMT -6
sapphire: Hey, welcome! Apr 21, 2015 14:15:47 GMT -6
crow.: i spy a sapphire ;D Apr 21, 2015 14:13:58 GMT -6
crow.: -stabs smiley- D< i hate those smileys. i prefer text smileys. Apr 21, 2015 8:21:48 GMT -6
crow.: -waves- ai :D i'm the new gal! Apr 21, 2015 8:21:18 GMT -6
A Mask Among Many: again... I missed it again. :'( Apr 20, 2015 19:33:24 GMT -6 *
sapphire: April's Swift Scribbles prompt is up here! You have 24 hours. Apr 15, 2015 16:49:39 GMT -6
A Mask Among Many: Ah, I understand. I don't want to enter the conversation because I can't make any pertinent judgments. Though if I could, I would Apr 13, 2015 19:29:55 GMT -6 *
sapphire: Much more complex than all that, of course, but that's the gist of it. Apr 13, 2015 13:07:04 GMT -6
sapphire: Technically, nothing illegal was done - they're allowed to campaign - but it resulted in people being nominated who might not otherwise, and it's supposed to be based on quality, not politics. BUT the conservatives argue that it was biased toward liberals. Apr 13, 2015 13:06:50 GMT -6
sapphire: This year, some conservative writers decided they weren't being represented, and launched a huge campaign to get more conservative types nominated - everyone else is less than happy about that, because it worked, and the nominees are mostly conservative. Apr 13, 2015 13:05:25 GMT -6
