Irregular Business

By posting the Writer Workshop thread earlier today that got us to about two days behind where we should be.  I’d like to bring that up to one day behind by getting the decon round up up tomorrow and the weekend post on Sunday.

Since we haven’t had a weekend post in forever and a day seriously feel free to submit anything you’ve written ever that you want to show off because it’s not like I’m going to be checking dates.  That’s for the blogaround.  Anything you’ve read ever for in case you missed this.  Things you can do still need to be current because, you know, you still need to be able to do them.

Regular Business

Submission deadline for the weekend post is pushed back one day to Sunday 20:00 (8PM) US Eastern Time.  

Anyone who has submissions for the weekend post should send them in.  Some people wonder if they really deserve to be in the post.  The answer to that is always the same: You do.  So try not to be afraid and do try to send in submissions if you have them.

The sections of the post are as follows:

The Blogaround

Any denizen of the Slacktiverse who has posted an article to their own website since they last submitted to a weekend post is invited, enticed, and cajoled to send a short summary of that article along with its permalink to the group email. That summary and link will be included in the next weekend blogaround. This will help to keep members of our community aware of the many excellent websites hosted by other members.

Remember, this is since you last submitted to a weekend post, not since the last weekend post. For example, if the last time you submitted was a month ago, everything you wrote since then is fair game.

In Case You Missed This

Readers of The Slacktiverse can send short summaries of, and permalinks to, articles that they feel might be of interest to other readers.  These should be sent, as you might expect, to the group email.

Things You Can Do

Anyone who knows of a worthy cause or important petition should send a short description of the petition/cause along with its url to the group email.

For the Weekend Post Sunday 8PM US Eastern time.  Articles are welcome any time, as are ideas for open threads and writing prompts.  All submissions should be sent to the group email which is SlacktiverseAuthors (at) gmail (dot) com.

This can be used as an open thread, if you want.
