*waves* Here we are with another set of photos to hopefully inspire you! Remember, you can make as little as 2 icons or write just a 100-word drabble to meet the criteria for this challenge. Think how awesome you'll feel after you accomplish something creative today! YOU CAN DO IT!

Daily Count Challenge September!

SEPTEMBER!!! It makes me want to dance the night away!!

Comment here and I'll put you on the list and it's entirely possible that I'll remember to start naming contestants on the first!

It's as simple as stepping up when your name is called and doing your utmost to meet your own daily word count (whatever that may be). When you finish, write a small bragging post and call up the next contestant!

Be accountable for one day!

Big Buddy Challenge September!


Comment here with the count you can reach in the month of September (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you every 6(ish) days to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every 6 days chime in to tell us that you've produced 20% of them.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!
