    September 2012 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Monday, September 2, 2012
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    The Number Seven

    September used to be the seventh month of the old Roman calendar and its name literally means seventh "month," so this month is brought to you by 7. Write wherever the prompt inspires you, fiction or non-fiction, prose or poetry. Do try and keep things at a PG-13 level, though.

    Important Note: I will be out of the country and possibly out of email contact September 14-24. During that time, Ralph Pines is deputized to run the thread.

    Instructions:
    Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you!

    I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn.
    Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete your post. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread. If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

    Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post, and keep in mind we're not starting until later in the month to give people time to sign up.

    This is perfect.

    Count me in - hopefully I can get through the next month without any further unexpected interruptions...
    The blog, which may not be updated regularly enough. -- I'm linking to other AW blogs here. -- There's some nonsense here when I can be bothered.
    Don't hold your breath...

    The British Comics Database is growing. Or mutating. I'm not quite sure which, yet.

    I'm doing a big list of facts (most likely with commentary and asides). I'm ever so predictable...

    Thanks for putting me last. I just got back in town and was rushing to make certain I hadn't missed my slot. I'll be ready when we get to me.
