    I'd love to hear you be interviewed
    Oh dear why? I don't think I'd interview very well, I'd be so self conscious I'd stumble around my answers. Or worse still I'd be as verbose as I am normally and they'd regret asking me anything at all! Of course, either of these could be the appeal in the idea of hearing me being interviewed.

    The plots are the hardest thing I think. I can never think of a story to put them into. I lack imagination. Luckily I am also really slapdash and wouldn't take an age to tweak it, I'd just get fed up one day and say 'sod it'

    Why would you like me to be interviewed? Or just enter the competitions and not win? Mmmmm?

    Well for a start I wouldn't assume you wouldn't win. But I'd encourage you to consider it because you are writing fics now and the competition and interview are another experience and an opportunity to motivate your existing interest. And if you were interviewed I think you'd handle it really well and be able to advocate exploring fanfic, which as a creative endeavour I'm all in favour of, and speak out positively about the show & comics and, I'd assume, specifically about the wish to explore the Spike/Buffy dynamic more by writing. Plus, importantly, I'd also get to preen about knowing you.

    Listening to TheWiggins being interviewed on the latest Sunnydale Fanfic Club podcast (which you should all listen to if you love fanfic) and she mentioned The Summer of Giles on @dreamwidth, which I thought sounded really interesting for all writers out there. You can also contribute art works too if that's your thing Link below

    The Sunnydale Fanfic Club have asked for any art related to fanfic to be sent to them, so if anyone has some, please send it in, I'm sure they'd love to see it

    I'm sorry but I don't . . . I guess you'd post to their website, but I've no idea how. They are also on Tumblr, so maybe it'd be easier to post there?

    But then where did they ask about it? I checked their website and their tumblr, but I couldn't find anything about this. Or did they ask on the podcast?

    Yes it was on their podcast. They just requested art, they didn't say how you got it to them

    I have tweeted them asking for technical help. I'll let you know if I get a reply

    The Sunnydale Fanfic Club replied to me on twitter. . .

    We’re working on a form to submit on the website. For now, please just message us on here or Tumblr, and we’ll post the art on our social medias 🤗

    Little bit annoyed now by the Sunnydale Fanfic Club . . . they've set up a new resource on their website . . .

    https://thesunnydalefanficclub.com/writing-tools/

    Which includes this link . . .

    Buffy Resources & Inspiration

    Transcripts for Every Buffy Episode
    Buffy Boards - An Active Community That Talks About Everything Buffy
    Buffy Wikipedia
    Buffy Reviews - Special Thanks to Taaroko
    Buffy Forms - Notes for Every Episode and Several Buffy Debates

    They've either spelt Buffy Forums incorrectly or just don't have a clue that we are a forum that is also 'an active community that talks about everything Buffy' I've asked them to change it, but if anyone else wants to message them and point out their error, that would also be good

    - - - Updated - - -

    Update - They changed it, though I'm not fond of 'another' in front of the description, it's better than it was

    Was that also at your insistence? I like a woman who knows what she wants.

    The details for the August comp are up.

    The theme is HEAT

    The challenge object is OZ's VAN (thought Oz doesn't have to be in the story )

    Closing date is 24th August. The story must be newly written and there is no word minimum.

    Good luck to everyone on the forum who enters

    The Sunnydale Fanfic Club are reading Shelf Life by beer_good this week:

    When one of Willow's spells inevitably goes wrong, our heroes find themselves trapped in a series of classic novels. Now they have to be good little postmodernists and subvert the hell out of them to get out.

    https://archiveofourown.org/works/54...pters/12539177

    - - - Updated - - -

    I've just read Shelf Life, and it's really good, I would highly recommend it. Then listen to beer_bad on the podcast

    Magister by GilesCandy is up next for discussion on the Sunnydale Fanfic Podcast.

    I have to admit it's not really my thing as it’s a Vamp!Giles fic, but I am going to give it a go.

    https://archiveofourown.org/works/93...apters/1818671

    Please submit any questions you may have for GilesCandy by 4th October. You can submit questions on twitter or on the podcasts site.

    The next fic the Sunnydale Fanfic Club will be discussing is Magpie by Sparrow2000. They would like questions for Sparrow200 by 19th October.

    https://archiveofourown.org/works/14...hapters/212205

    This is a Xander/Spike fic, so have you already read is Sosa Lola? I'm going to try and read it today and I hope we'll all read it and submit questions

    Would you recommend reading the whole series? Is Sparrow2000 one of your favourite Spander writers?

    Try Magpie first, because it's Gen. Its sequel Mockingbird is Spander.
