I'm sorry progress has been slow for the site over the past several weeks, I was out of province. As @IMB mentioned in one of their query comments, with #NaNoWriMo underway (today) and the holiday season starting in a month, this is a slow time of year for writers. Agents often start closing to queries, to reopen again in the new year, and writers focus either on a new project for #NaNo or revisions on current projects to be query ready for when the agents reopen.
Now that I'm back, I'm prepping for several things at once, one of which is a series of raffles for query critiques from several gracious freelance editors (coming early 2020). I'm hoping to have a proper announcement done up for the end of November with names of the participating editors and how the raffles will work. We're also quite excited about some of the upcoming dev changes from our webhost, which will allow for us to create private forums. This will be implemented and members will have the opportunity to sign up for these based on a variety of criteria. (The process for this is still in development)
Two writerly events also began today (November 1, 2019):
#NaNoWriMo (if you don't know what this is, feel free to start a thread in general, and the community will fill you in)
This is an event where writers write, and rewrite based on CP feedback, a 1k short story over the course of 4 weeks (5th week wrap up). @QueryConnection on Twitter retweeted the info or learn more at https://writerinmotion.com/) If you're looking for something to do for #NaNo this may interest you.
Now that I've filled you in for what's upcoming for the site, tell me what you're doing for November!
