Hi there, I've got a question. Is it possible to have some kind of "secret Santa" right now or during summer. I enjoyed writing a story in December, i had never posted a story before nor did a since. The secret Santa was a kind of mild pressure i seem to have needed. Does anybody feel the same?? I know it is probably a lot of work for the "headmistresses" but I wondered.

Hmm, that's certainly something I'll bring up with the other staff in the staff room.
We *did* have a fall writing festival last year, which was similar to secret santa. But it was really more about having a safe place to anonymously submit constructive criticism for a piece in order to help writers improve, rather than being a gift giving extravaganza It only had a few participants, though.
In the mean time, while the staff hashes it out, maybe the two of you could write stories for each other in the style of secret santa? Since you're both interested I'd love to see what you could come up with. This board is always in need of fresh stories!
'My dears! Which of you left his seat first? Which?' 'Dunno,' said Ron, looking uneasily at Harry. 'I doubt it will make much difference,' said Professor McGonagall coldly, 'unless a mad axe-man is waiting outside the doors to slaughter the first into the Entrance Hall.'
