Weekend Challenge, a little late!

Hey everyone! I know we usually have it up by now, but there was a bit of a glitch this weekend, so sorry about that! Anyway, I'm here now, and this is how I'm working it this weekend:

#1 Challenge: This one's for the graphics makers out there! How about some comm-specific graphics? I'm looking for icons and banners to do with 1_million_words! Now, you may have seen some of the ones kaige68 and I use, but how about some more? I don't think there are many (& in some cases, none) banners or icons for the following, and we'd love to see your take on them:

- Weekend Challenge
- Daily Count Challenge
- Big Buddy Challenge
- Word Race
- A - Z Challenge
- Numbers Challenge
- Birthday Challenge
- Swap of Joy

and how about just a general 'I belong to 1_million_words' icon, or any icons that make a statement about our wonderful comm?

So get to work and make us a few icons or a banner or two; make them for the comm and we'll add the icons to the comm's icon page for everyone to share, and the banners can be put somewhere for sharing too, I'm sure. Your reward for completing anything here will be a drabble from yours truly from my List of fandoms I'll write in.

#2 Challenge: And for all you writers out there, go check out some of the tags which have posts with prompts, like one of these:

- A - Z
- Blow Me Away
- Color
- Comment Fic
- Crack Me Up
- Cry Me a River
- Hurt Me, Heal Me
- Numbers
- Rainy Days & Mondays
- Slow Sated Sundays
- Thursday Tropes
- Torrid Tuesdays

Find a prompt that inspires you, and write at least 500 words on it, whether you follow the challenge itself or choose to use the prompt in a different way! Go on, you know you want to! ;-) Once again, I'll reward you with a drabble in one of the fandoms I write (as per link under graphics challenge) - your choice of course!

Now, go ahead - CREATE! You have until midnight Sunday, PST, just to give you plenty of time to play! Link or post your creations back here when you're done! ;-)

PS: I haven't forgotten last weekend's rewards, btw; I'm on them next! ;-)

Any specific size for the banners?

Umm, hadn't actually thought about that, but I guess as long as they're 600x300 or smaller, that would be fine!

Word Race icon: link
Word Race banners: link (500x300), link (500x250) (I think the smaller one looks a bit better)

Also a simple Swap of Joy banner: link :D

Woot! These are great, thank you so much! I will upload the icon to our icons page soon, and maybe figure out a post to keep the banners in too. ;-)

Now, what reward would you like?

So I have used the Hostage and Capture prompts from the Hurt Me Heal Me challenge and written this that ended far longer than I thought!

Oh my, that is especially yummy! ;-)

And as I still owe you a reward from last weekend, I may have to join them together into something bigger (as you didn't reply with a fandom, I was considering Nick/Greg, but now I see you writing Connor/Oliver, I could just as easily go there). Any special requests?

This isn't really part of the weekend challenge and it wasn't even in the list of challenges for it, but I made a Word War banner as well: link :3
May. 16th, 2015 10:26 pm (UTC)
Oh, that is so cool! I definitely have to get that banners post together soon! Thank you for doing this! ;-)
