HASA news - Challenges

Current and prospective Challenges, and the Nuzgûl of the Month: come and pet the plot bunnies...

Birthday Challenges

Is your birthday in June and would you like a drabble about your favourite character or topic? You can request it here.

The May Challenge is still going on, so why not take a few minutes to write a birthday drabble for one of the May birthday people?

Not sure what the birthday cards are about? Have a look at stories written for previous requests.

Current and closing Challenges

May 2010 Birthday Cards - closes May 31

May Treasure Hunt - closes June 06 (and don’t forget to keep an eye open for next month’s Treasure Hunt!)

June 2010 Birthday Cards - closes June 30

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, head over to the Challenges Forum, or take 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 all-dominating obsessive thoughts that keep you from your sleep and monopolise every waking minu^^^... erm... yes, well... Put on your mithril boots and step into the Nuzgûl hutch. Who knows what ideas you may come out with?

And to make that dive into the hutch that little bit(e) more attractive, have a taster of what is in there:

The Nuzgûl of the Month!
This month’s fanged beauty is Gimli the Well-Traveled.

Think you want to write it? Come on over to the forum, be inspired, see how many others you can inflict this idea on, and perhaps even turn it into a Challenge.

Thank you for reading at HASA. Have fun!
