Important Things!


Because many/most of the SWWers are doing NaNoWriMo, in the month of November, there will be 4 Sunday Word Wars, one on each Sunday!

Tonight, November the second, the word war will be at it's regularly scheduled 8 EST time. I won't be able to attend, but I will have someone to run SWW (unknown at the moment, but when you read this I'll have talked to you, and I love you forever). The remaining Sundays in November will be scheduled at 3:30 p.m. EST.

Kuu is your lovely host tonight, btw. =)

SWW Icons.


Because, clearly, I have to much time on my hands.
