Advent Day 25: What 1_million_words means to me.

I thought about this for a while, and came to the conclusion that I wanted to do some Word Maps on this - using different colours and fonts - and then play around with them to make a choice of icons as well. Without further ado, I'll get on with it!

Looking forward to seeing what all of you come up with too! [EDIT: anyone who did Advent icons, please add or link your 'what 1MW means to me' icons in here if you wish (do a separate post if that's easier, but this will keep them all together). Anyone who didn't do Advent, you are also welcome to add icons or other graphics here too, of course!]
