You guys, writing is so awesome. Seriously. We do it all the time. It's the best. And we want you to join us.

That's why we've come up with a ton of different Writing Challenges this month…and we have something for everyone. Been crusading with the Dark Knight in Batman: Arkham City? Write about the experience in our Bitmob Wants You callout. We've seen a few great articles already, but we'd still love to have yours.

Batman not your thing? Try the random-headline generator challenge. Get yourself a random, ridiculous headline from this website, then try to write an article about it . Lots of Bitmobbers have joined in on this one and produced some absolutely hilarious content. And the author of the best one (as voted on by the Bitmob community) will win a free game!

If neither of those options sound good, there's always the official monthly Writing Challenge. This month, we're calling it Levels of Shame, where you take an awful level in a video game and break it down: design, difficulty, enemies, glitches, everything. If you're stumped, our own Chris Hoadley has given you a perfect example from Mega Man X6

Not into writing? That's OK, too. For you, we have our BurgerTime World Tour giveaway. We've got 10 exclusive t-shirts for you, and all you have to do is send us a picture of a burger you've made. Jasmine Rea's got more details for you right here.

Did we get the creative juices flowing? Great — now get writing! It's what all the cool kids are doing. Trust us.
