HASA Announcements: September 9-16
- BIRTHDAY DRABBLES
The following members have birthday this week. If you're in the
drabbling mood, why not write them 100 words as a birthday card?
Linda Hoyland requested "Aragorn is my favourite character,especially as
King. My other favourite characters are Arwen,Faramir and Eomer. I like
drama or humour, but dislike smut and slash."
If you have a September birthday and haven't yet done so, you can
request it at
SITE FUNDING UPDATE
Thanks to generous HASA-ites, HASA is funded through the end of 2007.
There are still lots of ways to make HASA a better site, through the
donation of your time. Review a story, either one already published or
one of the several currently in the review pool. Enter or suggest a
challenge. Challenges is currently looking for a volunteer to help out
with the birthday drabbles thread. And you can always add to the
resources knowledge base, or link to it where you see Tolkien canon
being discussed. Speaking of....
This week's focus: RESOURCES.
The HASA Research Library is a very useful resource for writers as well
as for online discussions on book canon. You can find entries on
characters, settings, events, and items, containing cited quotes about
the item you are trying to find more information on. This portion of the
site is available to both members and non-members at
Would you like to get involved with Resources? If you like researching
