OCTOBER, darkorange IWAKU NEWSLETTERThis Newsletter is brought to you By: Ocha: Editor Cammy: General Spotlight Cerulean: Blog Highlight Lstorm: Recent Challenges Join the Newsletter Group When was the last time you felt challenged? Mentally? Physically? Or even spiritually or philosophically? Challenges are what help us grow. Sometimes we find our faults because of a challenge. Sometimes our strengths. And then sometimes we find out something totally unexpected about ourselves or the world around us. Iwaku is a great place to be nurtured, but also to grow. Go ahead, try a different genre or character type, hang out in the Chat if you've never been before, start a discussion or do one of our many challenges. ~~~ It's that time of year again. If you have a topic, challenge, or RP related to Halloween let everyone know. Diana wants to know if you use the global signups and Ozzie is inquiring how often you look at the ad banners. Has one of your RP partners wowed you and you want to let everyone know about it? Then write them a letter. And if you have an idea that is amazing but you can't use it, let someone else adopt a plot bunny from you. Lastly, if you have been wanting to get into a Mythos RP, a new one is getting ready to start up. Ozzie Chanter has unveiled Crimson Soul in the new Mythos section. Check it out today! GENERAL SPOTLIGHT, orangered View the General Forum What is your favourite romantic gesture to receive from someone? That one thing that lets you know they care... There are some places that certain songs should not be heard. Can you think of unlikely places for certain songs? Time for a change in the seasons! With every change, there's a look to the future. What are you looking forward to? And speaking of looking forward, do you have any goals for this autumnal season? Could this be the return of Hindenburg-style airships? What is your favourite food? Could you win an eating contest for it? Do you have an odd habit or obsession? What is something you do that you think nobody else does? Do you know of any one-liners that stand out for you, either funny, thought-provoking or inspiring? Let's keep our eyes on the entertainment horizon! What games or movies are you desperately waiting to be released? And finally, an interesting debate on the subject of soulmates. What do YOU think about them?

Still, there have been several people who did their best despite their newfound business, all of whom I would like to thank because seeing a challenge response is just awesome. If you have replied to any challenge the past month, you have my thanks! Unfortunately, several challenges did not receive any responses, like SilverJae’s Musical Challenges, in which she asks people to get inspired by a piece of music to do a character. LadySabine’s The Gladiator's Lover did not receive any attention either, but what surprises me the most is that two of Kitti’s Character Challenges, #81 and #83 have not received replies yet. Vay’s Randomly Generated Butler Challenge has not received any love either, along with Koori’s hilarious I Have Seen Enough Hentai to Know Where This is Going. Please do your best to respond to these excellent challenges! Now, without further ado, the most popular challengers of this month are: I never said he was dead Intro-Exit Challenge Come at This if You Can And here are our top challengers: Falcon ashjaygrass SilverJae And now I bid all of you farewell. May the Muse be with you and may you never run out of ink! CURTAIN CALL, darkorange Iwaku is an amazing place with many ways to help you learn and grow, not just as a role player, but as a person.
