Currently available funding: $389.67
To provide funding through: April 2008
If anyone would like to make a donation, you may do so here.
FEBRUARY 2008 CHALLENGES BULLETIN
I wasn't able to post the monthly challenges bulletin last week, but it is up at the website. You can view it here.
(you'll need to be logged in to see it.)
This week's focus:
The HASA Research Library is a very useful resource for writers as well as for online discussions on book canon. You can find entries on characters, settings, events, and items, containing cited quotes about the item you are trying to find more information on. This portion of the site is available to both members and non-members here.
Would you like to get involved with Resources? If you like researching and want to help develop this section of HASA you can contact the Resources & Research Library through the contact form here.
What's new in Resources:
Elessar and Arwen visit the Hobbits at Brandywine Bridge
Elessar and Arwen dwell in Arnor awhile
Morwen of Lossarnach
Marshals of the Mark
Good luck researching your story! If you enjoy this section of the site please feel free to thank the researchers, listed at the bottom of every entry.
And always remember, grasshopper: the path of wisdom leads through proper citations. *grins*
