When Monday doesn't even happen on Tuesday.

So Monday was MONDAY here, and then Tuesday was out sick, so... Happy W-onday to all of your awesome selves!

Now let's get right to it - How awesome have you been? How awesome are you planning to be? Are your WIPs under control? Is your Swap of Joy all set? Are you wording your fingers off? Are your numbers updated? Have you invited all of your friends to the party that is us?

IT'S ALL SO EXCITING!!!

And while we've to you - What are your thoughts on next year? Are there things you think worked exceptionally well? Are there things that you think flopped? Do you have ideas you'd like to see implemented? Ideas you think were too much?

Obviously, we'll be looking for more volunteers. Is there something in particular you'd like to do? Would you like to host a monthly challenge?

Personally, I'm thinking I'll host rare pairs again in January, and that we'll bust the 100 in 100 challenge and the WIP push each down to twice a year. Yes? No?

Are you all decorated for your festive season? Are you already ready? Are you already underway? Are you so very looking forward to what our count will be in just two weeks?!?!?! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Happy whatever day it is to you!

I think we are the most awesome of the awesome!! And you are QUEEN of Awesome!!!

I'm volunteering to do as many weekend challenges as you'd like/need/prefer. The only weekend I know is out is the May 7-10. That's when I'm graduating from college! I'm hoping that partying will be happening!

I'd also like to host a Bingo Challenge. I could probably get it together in time for Valentine's Day. I love writing for them so I'd really like to try making cards.

We haven't done any decorating in our house as of today. There is a tree tied to the roof of my car. But it hasn't made it inside yet. We're a little behind. Plus when you have 6 dogs, decorating is generally at a minimum. If they can reach it, it's theirs.

I'm a little behind on Swap of Joy but I am determined to finish it today!!! I'm going to work on it right now.

Awesome! That's us!!!

It's good to be queen. ;)

I have not decorated for Christmas since I got Eggs. I've decorated Eggs, but not the house. Huh? But yes I get that as I recall pulling kittens out of trees.

Noted on all of the things! We will be in touch!!!

I'm up for hosting a few weekend challenges and a monthly challenge or two. Maybe we could have a big bang challenge? I'd like to finally complete one...lol

We could do that! We could, maybe over the course of a 3 month period, pair up artists and writers! Lookit you thinking!
We'll be in touch!

Yes, we did. Three as a matter of fact, but I haven't completed one on my own. :)

I really enjoy the bingos - thanks to all who handle those, and I'd say maybe even add one this year? We do June and October, right? Or am I forgetting one?

I know it's hard for us to do any writing together 'live' - same time exactly, due to time differences, but I really miss how prompt used to draw several different drabbles very quickly. It was fun to see all the different takes on one prompt. Maybe the way to do that is that once a month (or every week?) the weekend challenge becomes a drabble challenge. You can choose to use your prompt in a longform fic later, of course, but for the weekend the goal is something fast and short and rewards are due that week. We might reinvigorate it, and end up with more words that way. Just a thought.

I'm posting my SOJ tonight! And counting words, and likely going over my goal for the month with time to coast, lol...

YAY WORDS!!!!

And a monthly drabble challenge sound like it's entirely workable!

I think, possibly, it may have been 3 bingos. Maybe. Possibly.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOORDDDDDDDDSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't done any decoration yet, because we will re organising our furniture at the living room at Sunday and it's not worth the work for unpack and repack the decoration, but after that I'm going to put everything up :)

I would like to continue my weekly vid and picture posts and I thinking about to ask for an opinion about a music one too :) and I really liked the bingos and August Rush and the 100 in 100 challenge too :)

You are absolutely on for both of those challenges!

And the decorating after the rearranging makes complete sense!

The rest is all noted, and ask away!

Ugh - this week has been a week. Hope you're feeling better now though.

Swap of Joy is done! Christmas shopping is done, just need to wrap. Baking is mostly done but that's only because the elves in my house keep eating all my cookies. LOL

This is my first year here so I don't know what to suggest. But I did love August Rush, Swap of Joy (even though it gave me hives worrying about it), and the Pool Party (I think??? The new-to-you fandom challenge). The weekend challenges and monthly challenges are great, too.

Oh, and BINGO. My addiction.

YAY SOJ AND SHOPPING DONE!!!

I was just telling the payroll lady, that if I haven't bought the gift yet, I don't see it happening. Cookies are Saturday and Sunday, and I'll be down to the wire with the last 8 of the things I need to finish knitting for next Thursday.

Noted! Thanks for saying so! I, too, love a good pool party!

YES!

ROFL - I feel your pain. I hate going out of the house at this time of year. I spent probably 14 hours last weekend baking. And I have more to do to replenish. But, have fun! I knw you enjoy the knitting so hopefully it's still relaxing and not stressful.

I like being pushed out of my comfort zone. Well, after the fact, I do. :)

I wouldn't be opposed to hosting a weekend challenge if I had enough advance notice to work out a schedule. Between SAR and the dog shows I can get swamped.

Now, rarepairs, and crossovers, I would definitely be up for writing for. those are my two favourites and do them more than once a year.

Yay!

I'll help out with the rarepairs and crossovers.

We would love to do the TV show again but not conflicting with Nanowrimo... so we'd love a crack at an earlier month... if you have the room!

LOVE LOVE the Bingos. Maybe for we graphic makers, something with some technical prompts. Those tend to be my favorites.

Oh, or maybe do a 20in20, though for the whole month.. (30in30?) and it could be with icons/graphics or writings... Something flexible for everyone. :)

We would LOVE to have you do the TV Show again, and yes, next November will be out.

I do like the idea of graphic technical bingos!

AND I like the idea of a 30 in 30 using prompts for visual and verbal producing. Dreamy was talking about doing more drabble challenges and I'm thinking that could work well with this idea. Thoughts?

Yay! Just give us a quiet month that would let folks have the time to do a TV show. :)

Yes, it easily could... it could be 30 drabbles or 30 icons/graphics per prompt. My thoughts are it could be structured like a 20in20 icon challenge. Basically give out 15 prompts, one category of 5 and then an artists/writer's choice, which would total 30. :)
