All ideas for Guide Entries are really most welcome. Even if you don't have time right now, or can't finish your Entry this month.

Collaborative Entries, or Updates to existing ones...the possibilities are very open-ended. The intention is two fold, for you to enjoy writing, and for the Guide to keep growing and to keep up-to-date.

Thanks Solnushka, for all the work and energy that you put into Create.

Hmmm, I think I have to set the record straight on what the Jersey Shore is really all about. There is a whole lot more than drinking, tanning and laundry.

Yeah, there's Cape May, for instance. smiley - laugh And the ferry...of course, I prefer slower Lower Delaware, but hey...smiley - magic

I decided to tell everybody how to spend a weekend sightseeing in Pittsburgh: A87739942.

I've procrastinated and prevaricated for far too long, I really should write an insider's view of this island. smiley - blush

You should yes!

I've got three entries I want to write: something along the lines of a toddlers guide to museum going, possibly specific to certain museums.

Also two on two of my favourite places in Moscow: VDNKh, a sort of Soviet exhibition centre, and the souvenir/ antiques market Vernesage.

I will try to do at least _one_.

I've just sent off an e-mail to Sol saying that I won't be able to help out with Create for the time being - sorry. But I can still participate, and, as some of my journals in the NaJoPoMo consisted of a description of a local town, I should be able to get an entry on my locality cobbled together before February is out.

Good smiley - goodluck luck everyone!

What a great entry! And it sounds lovely. I went to Germany a number of times in my teens but not since. Keep meaning to go back. Hmmmmm. It sounds just my sort of place.

I've currently got two articles about my local area in Peer Review:

F48874?thread=8285361 - Winchester Cathedral, the local cathedral.

F48874?thread=8289936 - 'The Who - Live At The Isle of Wight Festival 1970' - an article about a historical event that happened in my local area that later became an album.

I could have a shot at 'Brighton and Hove - City by the Sea', but the problem is what to leave out.

Hurrah MVP! Have a badge!

I have actually got one nearly finished. Honestly! It has pictures too! It is languishing next to my unfinished one from December and one which I'm going to claim will count for March if I get that finished too...

Scrodinger's entries. They are brilliant in the form I assure you...

I helped to orchestrate a collaborative article on the Museum of Science & Industry which is local for some of the researchers involved, which is now in Peer Review here: F48874?thread=8291096

Indeed you did, Bluebottle (and a fab idea it was too and thanks for organising it). Please you also have a badge! Although actually you get one for your sterling work in the landmarks 42 word story category too. Two badges?

BTW, I see the theme of fairy stories has inspired you! smiley - magic
