Thank you for that :) This month has been a real slog, hasn't it?

Our next participants will not be able to post until after September 20. So, rather than lie dormant, it's announcement time!

1. Topic nominations for October = Open

Nominate a topic or choose one from our previous nominations:
Bravest thing you have ever done
Daydreams
Desert island |
Character that everyone would love or hate
Character with a slingshot!
Computer problems
Heat
Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! |||
Most memorable autumn |
The number seven
Planetary romance
Post without using the letter E
Princesses gone mad
Randomized prompts (using Seventh Sanctum)

2. Remember to comment on your peers' posts!

I have been a bit lax about this myself for the last couple of months and have not been providing a good example. But I'm going to use the lull to go back and retroactively fill in a bunch of owed comments :) We should all, going forward, resolve to make fun and/or substantive comments for our peers as required by the rules :D

Hi guys

Is it too late to sign up for Sept?

Certainly not! Shall I add you to the list? We are waiting for some people who can't post until after September 20 so, if you want, you can post right now!

Excellent, thanks.

SJNew is now up, as it's September 20. We also need more votes or suggestions for the next blog chain.

This would normally be where I bump SJNew. But as asnys can't post until after 9/25, there's really no point.

In the meantime, please break the 17-way tie for next month's topic or suggest a new one.

I vote Lions, Tigers and Bears oh my! Unfortunately just did a post on bears but lions are something I'd love to post about, probably with a bit from my current WIP if that's okay.

Now that it's the 25th, I can finally bump SJNew in favor of asnys. But we're so far off the rails this month that I'm not holding out hope of anyone actually posting any further content :) Do remember to comment if you haven't yet done so, though!

In related news, the scary topic for October will be "Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!" Sign up here!

I see we both read the same XKCD! Or you and XKCD read the same thing :)

pyrosama asked to go last, so we will let her ride out September.

Thank you for letting me go last. I didn't post anything just yet, but I enjoyed reading all your entries. I've never read steam punk, but I've heard the term before and had become curious. Now I know what it is, but for the life of me am stuck with writer's block when I think of this theme.

The only thing that is coming to my mind is...

I'm working on it today! lol
