Galialay stands in shock as she slowly turns around, hands spread in search of an answer as she finally has time to visit the group and sees... the journal hasn't been updated since APRIL!

Dear minions members, I'm so sorry! I hope you don't think we've abandoned you! .. Well I kind of did, sorry. My life has taken a sharp turn and I find myself far less able to appear online as I once did a long, long time ago... *nostalgic sighing*.

I can only imagine Archaeon has also fallen prey to adulthood. I shall have to pursue and question.

So here's a journal to tell you I'm not dead, and hopefully neither is Archaeon. You should already know by now that Hana-dragon is not active, because of that we can't transfer the foundership... :shrug: I tried.

Obviously at this point I can't access all the names of the newcomers, the log only goes back so far and then erases itself. SO WELCOME EACH OF YOU WHO ARE NEW SINCE APRIL 25TH!

I hope you're enjoying it here, and submitting lots of stories to share between your fellow writers. You don't have to be spectacular at writing, you don't have to have the multiple styles of verse down to submit your poetry, you don't even have to use English. Just write! Share! Practice and learn!

I'm not going to open a FAW in this journal - I can't promise I or Archaeon will be able to get online again to judge your stories in the regular week-period. I'm sorry for everyone who participated in the last journal and waited and waited and waited to see if you were selected. Consider yourselves all winners.

I will leave you with this though.
Food For Thought
"If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn’t matter a damn how you write."
– Somerset Maugham

Thank you for being a part of this group! Keep writing!

I recently joined. I was wondering how to submit stories?

There are 2 ways; You can go to our gallery tab and click the button that says "submit to this gallery" (green button on the right side of the screen), or you can go to your story's page and scroll down to where there's a button on the right side that says "+ Add to a group" (where you'll type in the name of the group you want to submit to and then select which gallery from the drop down). :)

Hello! Panda Emoji-28 (Hello Hi) [V2] 
Um, I hope this doesn't sound dumb or anything (lol)
but I'm a total noob at writing literature! 
Would it still be alright if I join, even though I don't have much experience? ^^;
