This is also where we start thinking about the first optional check-in: the_MICROCOSM round 1! To participate, all you need to do is post a drabble/segment/writing snippet/dialogue/poem/other bit of related or unrelated writing to the round 1 collection by the end of 20 February SST (countdown). As per the rules, the only rule is that it must not be more than 500 words, everything else is fair game (any fandom, any type of writing). Please remember that it will be publicly revealed after the posting deadline closes.
If you are looking for a beta and have not already done so, please consult the beta/proofreader list and claim one!
