There's so much more to WRITING.COM than just writing stories, novels, & poems. There are many interactive features for members to enjoy. Some of these include:

CNOTE Collections
Madlibs
Quizzes
Crosswords


This Angel Army activity was created to award those above mentioned items in celebration of the Angel Army's 10 year anniversary.

A NOTE FROM SpookyB

I just want to say I love the Angel Army. I love the atmosphere of good will and encouragement that it offers the WDC community. I've been a member since iK├»y├ą┬žamaCabre created the Angel Army and while real life keeps me from being more active in Angel Army, I'm glad to support and proud to be a member. I'm also excited to bring this form 'back to life' so to speak, and celebrate the Angel Army's birthday in style.

This In & Out form is a little different from the regular messageboards you're probably used to, but the intent is to expose you to something a little different. There are many other items that can engage the WDC community so I wanted to spotlight CNotes, madlibs, quizzes, and crosswords.

Angels, raise your wings on high and enjoy the summer sun. *Smile*
Steph

HOST'S NOTE:

Any questions, email me directly! Thanks! And have fun! *Smile* - I will post weekly winners here in the Introduction no later Tuesday the following week.

**Best of the Rest was an active contest for several years before real life got in the way and demands on my time were just too much for me to keep it active. When I was working on my plans for August, I thought the forum would be great to bring back for this occasion.

{bitem:1941250} Is a sassy C-note shop I frequent all the time. Because I'm all about sass and then some. :-D

There are prettier and more stylish cnote collections out there, but this one is both amusing and effective. Perfect for NaNo, but generic enough to be used all year round. Ultimately, they just make me laugh.
