Must Be Monday!!!


It's so exciting! All the things are happening, and yeah it's a little overwhelming because ALL the things are happening!

Where to start?

Did you have a great weekend? Did you get everything done that you wanted to? No? Me neither? But I got a good start on things.

Weekend word wars seem to be working exceptionally for me, and a few other people. But I do know that not everyone can make them. So I'm putting this out there. You are all more than welcome to set up your own war/race/sprint! We are all over the globe and 197 people strong, chances are, someone wants to get in some words too.

Swap of Joy is all slated up and ready to go! Does everyone have their project done and into beta/graphic checker? ME NEITHER! ;) I'm about 2/3 done, and have my fingers crossed that I'll be able to get it to my readers this week.

The Advent Event still has 9 slots open if anyone wants to sign up. I'm going to give new sign ups until I wake up on Wednesday, and then I'm going to start to hit up the people who said they'd take two. So come on in and get 'em while they're hot!

AND THEN! I had an idea for a count down to the new year with the 12 Days of WIPness! I KNOW!!! It's un-original, but if you have a WIP that could be finished in 1000 or fewer words, I think as a team we can spend the last 12 days of the year busting that baby out! Get a few more words into our coffers for the January first count! And if you're interested in speed reading through someone else's work at the end of the year that would be a huge help too!


So what are your awesome plans?
