      In this week's news: birthdays, current and prospective Challenges, and the Nuzgûl of the Month.

      Birthday Challenges


      The April Birthday Challenge has just finished, though I'm sure the April birthday babes won't mind a very late drabble.

      The May Birthday Challenge has just opened, and we already have one request. Feel free to add your own request if your birthday is in May, and/or start writing if you're feeling inspired.

      Not sure what the birthday cards are about? Have a look at the stories already written this year.

      Current and closing Challenges


      There are no closing challenges this month.

      Prospective Challenges

      Challenges are born from Prospective Challenges, and the Prospective Challenges Forum is where you'll find out what other people would like to spring on unsuspecting authors... If you have any ideas you want to share, why not head over to the Challenges Forum; or be inspired by what is already there and pick up an older idea instead?

      Nuzgûl of the Month

      Just as Challenges come from Prospective Challenges, Prospective Challenges come from Nuzgûl, and Nuzgûl need attention to grow from tiny ideas into big stories. Step into the Nuzgûl hutch. The bunnies don't bite (much). And who knows what ideas you may come out with?

      The Nuzgûl of the Month!


      May's Nuzgûl will be: Heroes and Demons.

      Come on over to the Nuzgûl of the Month Workshop and join in the fun.

      Other news - donations


      First, thank you to everyone who donated after last week's appeal. It is much appreciated, and helps to keep HASA going.

      However, we're still over two months' worth in the red, so please consider donating in May if you haven't done so recently. Every little bit helps, even if you can only give $5.


      Thank you for reading at HASA. Have fun!

          Birthday Challenges

          There are a few more days to go in the July Birthday Challenge, so there’s still time to write or request a drabble.

          Older ideas can also be found in the Oliphaunt Pen and the Nuzgûl Hutch… Why not take on an Oliphaunt or let a Nuzgûl bite you?
