Word of the Day 05/09/15 Quorum

Quorum (noun)
quorum [kwawr-uh m, kwohr-]

1. the number of members of a group or organization required to be present to transact business legally, usually a majority.
2. a particularly chosen group.

Origin: 1425-75; < Latin quōrum of whom; from a use of the word in commissions written in Latin specifying a quorum

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

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! ;-)

WIP Push: End of Week One!

I haven't done posts for the 8th or 9th for the WIP push, but instead I am posting this for the weekend.


How'd you do so far? Getting somewhere overall for the week? Have you met your daily goal every day, or overall for the week, or perhaps you're satisfied with where you're at so far anyway. Here's where you can let us know, ask for help if you need something the others can assist with (beta, prompts, ideas for somewhere you're stuck, anything else that you think will help!), or just to have a little moan or woohoo! Offer an excerpt if you like too, or just talk about what WIP you're working on!
