ONE MORE... day?

Oh man. Monday, Tuesday, whatever it is where you are. HI! HOW ARE YA?

Were you awesome last week? Did you get awesome things accomplished? Did you make awesome plans for this week?

I am going out for riceballs! I'm very excited. And I've set up some of the countdown to awesome! So that's exciting too!

I will post sign ups for next month's Big Buddy and DCC. And H and I will figure out what we are doing for next month's challenge and then we'll do a post to figure out what we'd all like to do next year.

Hello there folks! As of right now, we have 101 hours until 2016 is gone from the planet! Let's get rocking. I'll give you a one word prompt every hour, and you'll have an hour to do with it as you will. Or you could come back and do them when you're conscious or not working or whatever!


And without further ado:

Daily Count Challenge - January 2017!

Jump In January!

Comment here and I'll put you on the list! 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!

I'm not sure which format we'll be going with just yet, so do call out the days you can or cannot do, and let me know if you want repeats and how many.

Big Buddy January!

Just do it January!

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month (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!
