Are you working on a WIP? Take 60 minutes and add 60 words to your WIP! Then come tell us how you did!!!
Stay tuned for a Word War coming up at 2:00 EST/18:00 UTC! Sharpen your pencils and clear your desk for some serious word creation. Possibly with a prompt or two if I can get it together. If you'd rather work in images, that's fine too! Use this time for whatever creative endeavors you want to make some progress on.
See you in a few! I will make another post announcing the beginning of the war.
