Challenge Details

In honor of the new site, here is a new challenge!

  1. Locate the Treasure link hidden on the Challenges home page. That is your story focus.
  2. Select a Treasure from any other publicly viewable section of the web site. The public sections besides Challenges are: HASA Home, Stories, Playlists, Forums, Resources, and About.
  3. Write a story of any type or length using those two treasures. Drabbles, poetry, vignettes, short stories, longer than that - all are welcome.
  4. Link to the two treasures in the story.
  5. If you can make use of more than one treasure in crafting your tale, go for it! Just be sure to link.

The challenge runs through January and will close on Sunday, February 7, 2010.
