Sunday Catch Up

Those of you who regularly tune in on a Sunday will maybe be expecting an announcement of the latest Drabble Dare, but we Burrowers like to keep you on your toes, so today's post is going to be a little different.

First of all, you may have noticed that we extended the deadline for submissions for the latest Drabble Dare. People are busy, time is short, inspiration can sometimes be lacking, so we made an executive decision and decided to give folks extra time to get their writing juices flowing.

Of course, it did mean that our regular Sunday post subject was redundant, and typically this week's Sunday post was due to be written by Yours Truly - the Burrow's resident procrastinator.

No problem. No problem at all.

So what I thought I'd do is remind everyone of the latest Drabble Dare (picture to inspire multiple drabbles is located on the right hand side of the page), and to reiterate that the deadline for submissions is September 30th. So if you haven't shivered your timbers yet, or mangled your litany, buck up and get moving or it'll be a pirate's life for you! Entries to be sent to theburrow360atgmaildotcom with 'Drabble Dare # 10' in your subject line. Go forth and drabblefy!

So I've reminded you about the Drabble Dare (if I say Drabble Dare often enough, the message should become subliminal, therefore bending you to my will), and before I shoot off and try to create a superliffic post for tomorrow (that could prove difficult), I wanted to give a shout out to y'all about talking a peek at our Mother Website, interestingly called The Burrow, by some strange twist of fate. *coughs*.

We Burrowers are currently busy with finalising the details on our up and coming October feature (super secret, not giving anything away on that as of yet), but in the meantime our homepage is still displaying our recent Pay It Forward feature. Drabbles about passing an act of kindness on to a stranger, with contributions from Burrowers and friends, this feature I humbly believe was one of our best, and we all had great fun taking part. Before it disappears into the Burrow archives (which technically isn't actually 'disappearing', but I always like to add a hint of urgency to these things), go take a peek and discover how one tiny act of generosity can act like a ripple in a pond, and soon spread further than anyone could have imagined.

So there we have it, a quick Sunday catch up. See you all tomorrow! And don't forget... Drabble Dare... Drabble Dare... Drabble Dare...
