The HASA weekly update for July 22-28. Every week I focus on what new content has been added to a section of HASA. This week focuses on challenges.
HASA FUNDING UPDATE
No website is truly free. HASA does not display ads or charge for memberships, but there are still costs associated with running the website. The website depends on member donations to pay its monthly hosting fee of $150.00.
Currently available funding: $538.64
To provide funding through: November 2007
If anyone would like to make a donation, you may do so here.
The following members have birthday this week. If you're in the drabbling mood, why not write them 100 words as a birthday card?
Anglachel (August 4) requested "My husband and I bought an 80+ year old house earlier this year and are in the middle of renovating it, so buildings are on my mind. Big ones and small ones. Grand capitals on high hills and humble Hobbit holes beneath. Places that are new and places that are old. Write something about a place, preferably a single building. It can be in any era, any location, and told from any perspective. Tell me something about that place - a start, an end, a swift event, the slow passage of time. Bring that place to life."
If you have a birthday in August and would like a drabble about your favorite character or topic, you can request it here.
