I wish I had Sandy's skills. She works full time, contributes regularly to several blogs in administrative positions (including this one), writes her own blogs, comments on other blogs, and takes care of her family. Sandy collected all of the wonderful suggestions that you sent for prompts and somehow managed to get it down to these choices. She has to watch the "old" prompts to make sure there isn't too much duplication (even though we have no duplication rule). Then she has to make sure names and URLs are correct. Then she sends it to me and crosses her fingers and says her prayers that I get it done on time.

Well, I got it done on time. Barely. I know how dedicated you all are to your art and I hope you have sufficient time to prepare and write. This blog has blossomed so beautifully that it makes me sing. All of you are so awesome!

The calendar and Past Prompt sidebar will be  are updated as soon as possible. As always, please notify me at meeyauw at gmail dot com if there are any errors here.

Blogging tip: Did you know that you can share any OSI post with Facebook, Twitter, Google Buzz, and with e-mail? Click on the symbols below each post, near the Comments link, and it will tell you how to do it! It’s simple! Pass the word!

Click here for the XML link for any RSS reader.
Click here to subscribe in iCal or Windows Calendar.
Click here to view the calendar in HTML in a browser.

The calendar now has links to all of the contributors.
However, the links are not clickable. Google has yet to implement this capability.

Thank you all so much!
