Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Monday on a Tuesday – Now with a twist!

Kaige has her hands full this week so you get me for your weekly how awesome are we post.

July’s almost over, heaven help us all, so how are you doing with your Pool Party Challenge?  Have you started?  Found your fandom?  Need a beta?  We’re here to help you be the most awesome you can be!  Even if that means sharing my Twizzlers.

By the grace of the fandom gods (and a coincidental birthday), I managed to eke mine out before the deadline. I honestly thought it wasn’t going to happen this year.  In light of that, I took a page out of Kaige’s book of tricks and found this stuck on my Inspiration board on Pinterest:  "People often say that motivation doesn’t last.  Well, neither does bathing.  That’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar.

I love that quote because it’s a reminder that we all lose speed from time to time.  The trick is to pick it right back up with your next sentence, your next meal, your next trip to the park.  We don't have that problem here though, because even when we’re not at 100%, WE ARE STILL AWESOME.

So, what are your big plans for being awesome this week?  Shout out and let us know so we can celebrate right alongside you!

Daily Count Challenge - AUGUST

Awesome August!

Comment here and I'll put you on the list and it's entirely possible that I'll remember to start naming contestants on the first!

It's as simple as stepping up when your name is called and doing your utmost to meet your own daily word count (whatever that may be). When you finish, write a small bragging post and call up the next contestant!

Be accountable for one day!

Again! Again!:

Big Buddy August

August the Amazing!

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month of August (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you every 6(ish) days to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every 6 days chime in to tell us that you've produced 20% of them.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!
