      Birthday Cards

      If you have a birthday in February and would like a drabble about your
      favourite character or topic, you can request it here:
      http://www.henneth-annun.net/forums/messages.cfm?con%c2%acfID=0&forumID=482&messageID=52336.

      Not sure what the birthday cards are about? Have a look at the stories
      written for the January requests: http://www.henneth-annun.net/forums/

      Challenges and Nuzgul

      There are no current open Challenges, but the Unbelievable AU idea
      only needs 3 more people to make it into one. Take a look and wait
      for that nibble on the ankle:

      Challenges need nuzgul. Have ideas you'd like to see written? Why not
      take that nuzgul by the scruff of the neck (mind the teeth!) and see
      if you can get four others to make it a Challenge?
      Prospective Challenges can be found here:

      Reviews

      Right now, there are 14 stories waiting for reviewers (remember to
      log in first): http://www.henneth-annun.net/members/review/in%c2%acdex.cfm

      If you are an active reviewer, why not go and check one out?

      If you're not an active reviewer, but would like to be one... If
      you've been a member of HASA for thirty days and think this might be
      an area you'd like to get involved, it's easy to get started. Read the
      links below, and then click "Reviews Home" and click on the link to
      "Activate my sta¬tus now." You'll be taken to a list of stories
      awaiting reviewers. Click on the title, read it, and enter your review.

      (please note: you need to be logged in for these links to work):
      --- Reviews Overview: http://henneth-annun.net/members/review/posting.cfm
      --- Review Policies: http://henneth-annun.net/members/review/policy.cfm
      --- Review Criteria: http://henneth-annun.net/members/review/criteria.cfm

      As you can perhaps guess, member participation is crucial for reviews.
      The more people that are involved in the review process, the more
      opinions will be represented. Having more people involved also means
      that stories pass through review more quickly - which is good for
      everyone.

      Here's a simple thing to try. You're all familiar with the Golden
      Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." By
      submitting a story for review, you are asking nine other members to
      read and evaluate it. So why not do until other authors in reviews as
      you'd like other reviewers to do unto you: check out one of the
      stories already in review and give it a read. Put more simply: put one
      in, take one out.

      January Stories

      All of us writers love feedback. It is the lembas and miruvor that
      sustains us as we write our story, and leaving a few words about a
      story you read is always a nice thing to do, whether the story is new
      or old.

      Every fifteen minutes HASA highlights a story chosen at random from
      the Reviewed and Gen¬eral stories in the archive. Why not go to
      http://www.henneth-annun.net/ and read the currently featured story?

      Many talented writers are publishing every day. In January:

      --- 17 Reviewed Sto¬ries:
      http://www.henneth-annun.net/stories/story_reviewed.cfm
      --- 54 General Stories:
      http://www.henneth-annun.net/stories/story_general.cfm
      --- 4 Beta Stories: (Please note, you need to be logged in to view
      beta stories) http://www.henneth-annun.net/stories/story_beta.cfm

      Thank you for reading at HASA. Enjoy!
