There are several challenges with deadlines in which you are invited to participate, or you can throw down the gauntlet yourself, and create a brand new challenge of your own. Simply sign up with your existing Google, Yahoo, Facebook account, and create your very own ‘nom de plume.’ This is a beautifully designed website, and the concept is fantastic for those whose creative juices need an outlet, and who love to collaborate.
Be careful, though…you could get addicted!
