Release Date: 17 Feb 08
The HASA weekly update for December 20-27. Every week I focus on what new content has been added to a section of HASA. This week focuses on recently-updated stories, with info about birthday drabble requests.
No requests have come in yet from February drabbles. If you have a birthday or other special occasion you'd like a drabble for, you can request it here.
This week's focus:
RECENTLY UPDATED STORIES
All of us writers love feedback. It is the lembas and miruvor that sustains us as we write our story, and leaving a few words about a story is always a nice thing to do, whether the story is new or old.
Every fifteen minutes HASA hilights a story chosen at random from the Reviewed and General stories in the archive. The current story is
Night Course in Pet Care by Werecat
A story inspired from this tantalising question: were fell beasts house-trained? Set in Carn Dum, it sheds light to an unknown side of the Witch-king and his, well, household. Introducing Fuinraw, the Chieftain of the Cats of Angmar.

Many talented writers are publishing every day. Check out these stories just added to HASA:

A Light in the Darkness by Wildbearies

And now for your mid-month nuzgul. Because the only way to get stories to read is for someone to write them, and that requires our fangy little friends.
We know that Arwen has become mortal. But what does she think about it? Does she discuss it with anyone? Write a story where Arwen discusses the thought of dying with one other person. Anyone you like - it doesn't have to be Aragorn or Elrond.
If you don't feel the tickle of little fangs in your ankle yet, there are many more potential stories just waiting to be written. Read all of HASA's many story prompts in our Nuzgul hutch.
