Count down to 2018!

So in my typical slacker mod move that has been my 2017, I went to set up the prompts that are my desperate attempt to get bigger counts out of each of you and post every hour for the last 100 hours of 2017. So naturally they should have started posting at 3 am YESTERDAY!

*sigh*

So here are the 30 words that should have posted so far! And we'll just move on from there!

If anything inspires you to make a drabble or an icon or more, then RUN WITH IT!

Big Buddy 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!
