    Last month was pretty fun. It saw us begin our first contest, a pride and positivity event, and a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style plotline.

    I personally helmed the Monster Creation Contest. With four incredible entries to pick from, a winner emerged with @LadySynn and her rather chilling tale of the wishing mouse. Synn got herself an exclusive medal for her efforts, as well as a shout out in the banner and a donation of $50 to Richardson Rescue. A special shout-out to @Dao Ma, @Practical, and @Panda for their participation!

    This month we begin with three more events for you to participate in, including a brand new contest. First off…

    Merra’s Poetry Contest! With July comes thoughts of summer, warm nights, barbecues, or perhaps days spent lounging on the beach. Or, if you’re like me, perhaps you just long for the cold embrace of winter. However you feel, channel those emotions into words and show them off for everyone to enjoy.

    Belated Birthaversary! Did you know Umbra technically turned 1 last month? It’s been touch and go and very much a learning thing, but I’m so happy we stuck with it and have kept our site going. Rei is too--she invites you to celebrate with us by designing a birthday card for Umbra. I’ve been informed participants will receive a slick medal for their time.

    Practical Writing Prompts! As it happens, July hosts a variety of strange dedicated dates. Practical invites you to celevrate these oddities through writing! While you don’t have to stick to the themes, I would recommend it. It’s an exercise in creativity that could help you flex synapses you otherwise might not be inclined to.

    Make sure to check out each of our events. I feel like there’s a little something for everyone in there. Stay safe out there in this weird, wild world.

    Your Militant Owl Admin,

    HI GUYS!!! SOMETHING ELSE HAPPENED LAST MONTH!!

    To help with coordinating the site and making sure peeps have support, Nev and Nyco opened up applications for a new moderator to heklp things.
