Waiting is open in preview now.

The pictures come suggested by Ivor Slipper, so we're expecting great things from him:

What are they waiting for, or for whom?

Two folk have asked for a 'normal' challemnge, and one for a 'wonderful' one. Is this one normal? I know it can be wonderful!

WHat interests me about the challenges is that the challenege stories are not read to the exclusion of all others. As an example, here is a screenshot of current open pages on the site just now:

Not one of them is a current challenge tale, two are by authors inthe curretn challenge, though

I think it both heartening and disappointing in equal measure that the challenge gets so little actual attention. What I think happens is that folk are attracted to the site and read loads while they are on it
