Guess what, guys? It's August 1st! We are now officially in Month #3!
Since a grand total of two people commented to claim, I'm going to say that the claim system is hereby thrown out the window for this edition, and probably all future editions. G'wan with your creative selves.
Just as a reminder, if you're not on IJ, don't let that keep you from being inspired! Either post it somewhere else and leave a comment on this entry, or e-mail your friendly neighborhood mod and she'll post it under your name. The more, the merrier!
Posts are moderated, but I check the queue at least once a day. Have no fear- the world will see your writing nearly as soon as you post.
