2015 Shameless Brag Book!

2015 was AWESOME here at 1MW

So 2015 was my first 1MW year and I can honestly say WE ROCKED IT!

So here is your chance to gloat and share you favourite things that you wrote/made in 2015!

I thought I would start us off with possibly the best (definately the best recieved) thing I wrote in 2015.

Avengers Interference - http://archiveofourown.org/works/4081024/chapters/9191461

This is what happens when my Daredevil obsession turns to crossovers. It was so much fun to write and I felt my heart swell everytime someone complimented it. I honestly miss writing it but it ran its course!

So I challenge you all to sift through the thousands of words and graphics produced and come up with what you are most proud of and post it in the comments here so we can have a post summing up the
Best of 2015!!

Also as Dreamy did last year: I will also be offering rewards to those who contribute to help with the effort for 2016: I write and make icons and sigtags.
Here is my list of fandoms: http://1-million-words.livejournal.com/32093.html?thread=10553693#t10553693

Good Luck and enjoy the trail of memories!

Daily Count Challenge to guineamania!

My muse has been all over the place since this year started, but I had an awesome word count day yesterday, so going into today, my work count tracker for the year told me I was about 1,500 words behind schedule. So I wrote 1,709 words for my Extreme Big Bang, and now I am 200 above where I need to be \o/ I'm not sure how great the words are, but I'm proud of myself for forcing through and getting something on paper!

So guineamania, take it away! I wish you all sorts of luck! You can do it!
