Winter Writer's Duel 2013

'Tis the season to be jolly - here at HPFF we're getting into the festive season by holding a brand new Writer's Duel! We're encouraging you to get into the spirit of winter celebrations by writing a one-shot on the theme of winter and winter traditions. The staff have created three prompts for you to choose from. Each member who wishes to participate in the duel must select ONE prompt around which to craft their story. Authors may only compete in ONE category, so select your prompt carefully. See the Staff Messages section of the forums for the prompts and more information!

It's National Novel Writing Month!

November is Novel Writing Month, and many of our members are plugging away at works both fanfiction and original. Want to join in the fun? Come visit the Loony Lounge in our forums! During NaNoWriMo, we like to remind all our members that our validating staff is not only your go-to for all things archive, we're also authors ourselves. Many of our staff are participating in NaNoWriMo this month in addition to their validating duties, so we ask you to have patience with all of us until November ends and we've all achieved NaNoWriMo glory. Good luck, and may the word count be ever in your favor!
