I never realized just how much I missed the forums until the website was attacked and, as a result, went down for more than just a little while. Now that it’s back, I find myself slipping back into old routines and checking it often. What about you? Did you miss the forums while they were away? Are you back to checking them the way you used to?
With summer upon us, temperatures are warming up and snow is disappearing. Are our brains thawing out as well? The world around us is coming to life, which may bring a new spark of creativity to our writing. Of course, this May also will bring a new Star Trek movie to us as well, making this summer one that we are all certain to remember. But while you’re having a blast with warmer weather and all of the pre-movie excitement, don’t forget about the many things going on around the Starbase 118 forums!
Here’s just a taste of the Forums happenings this month:
With the cold weather waning for most of us, and spring on its way in, the world itself seems to be coming alive around us. For some of us, that means more time outside, but for others, it’s simply a time when writing becomes a bit easier to do as our minds open up to the energy of spring itself. No matter what you’re doing this time of year, be sure to take a moment to stop by the Starbase 118 Forums, where there is always something going on.
