Fun stuff to do when it's too hot to go outside...
* Nest_of_spiders, a daily prompts comm for First War-era fic, is up and running--follow along or write a ficlet or draw something yourself!
* Mind_spark is a new comm organized by redvelvetcanopy for original flash fiction, with its first challenge next Monday. If you've been looking for a chance to do some short, non-fannish writing and some folks to share it with, this is your chance! Genre fiction--fantasy, science fiction, bizarro, horror, and romance--especially welcome.
* For those of us feeling left out of the Terminus fun, snegurochka_lee is hosting a Least Favourite Character/Pairing Drabble/Drawble & Ficlet Challenge! Pick a pairing or a character you hate and go to town! Lee has instructions on LJ here and on IJ here.
* Finally, fun, random stuff to look at on the internet: Sarah Haskins' "Target: Women," a series of clever spoofs on ads aimed at women. There's an NPR interview with several links here or you can just google her name to find her work. My favorite segment points out that yogurt is the official food of women (link takes you to a work-safe Youtube clip, 3:30).
