4 x Icons

A little support goes a long way - my writing days are few and far between these days because of my work, but it's still happening, just not as frequent as I'd like.  To that end, Kaiges recent battle cry for one more word inspired some creation, so I'm sharing some basic but hopefully encouraging icons to keep you in the mood to keep on writing.  Especially those brave souls attempting Nano's of many forms.
