Calling all MCU

Chatterbox: In This Month's Issue

Calling all MCU

Calling all MCU contributors


If you are one of the below please comment with your prompt or contribution to the MCU!  You all have a little time but it will take more time than it usually would because of the compiling and handing off.  So do please comment your contribution in a timely manner.

LMWAY - Majestic Mary

Location of the Month - Twilight

Important dates 1st-15th - MoonKitten

Important dates 16th-30th -  Feline Fantasy

Advice Column - Princess Juniper

Awards - Luna-Starr

Things of the Month - Writing_in_the_Dark

Paster - Peregrine

Book of the Month - Peregrine 

If this list neglects someone(s) who offered to take a part of the MCU make sure you comment with your name and what section you are taking so we do not miss you again!

If you haven't offered to take a part but want to there are a couple options for you.  I believe all the preiously made sections have been taken (correct me if I am wrong) so you can either offer to be someone's backup just in case they cannot make their contribution for some reason, or you can make an entirely new section.  Whatever way you decide be sure to comment with you name and the section you want to back up, or the name and an explaination of the new section you have made.

Suggestions are also very welcome from anyone and everyone!

LMWAY for May:

It's the last full month of school for most people, and we're just trying to get through... What are some ways to stay motivated through the end of the school year?

Some ways to get motivated is to remind yourself that you're almost to the end! Also usually schools are more relaxed and do funner things at the end of the school year, so that's something to look forward to. Making a scheldule(you could do in Google Forms and write assignments you need to do for that day) or setting reminders on your phone can help you stay productive and not fall behind on work as well.

Hello! I arrived a bit late but I really want to help :) I can either back up Book of the Month if that's okay, or I could write a short section each month about a different culture or country that I research. Does that idea sound good?

We would love your help, Lupine!  You can absolutely backup book of the month, or if you would like we alternate every month (i.e. I do May, you do June, I do July, etc.). Though, I do really like your culture/country section idea.  I always enjoy learning about different customs.  Let us know your your choice when you decide! You are welcome to both if you wish.

Cool! I'll do the country section, and if you're ever too busy to do the Book of the Month I can do it.

I didn't offer to help in the other thread, but I would love to! If anyone could think of a new part for me to do (I'm having a month-long idea block), that would be great. I can also stand in for LMWAY, Advice Column, and Things of the Month.
