Anyone up for word wars this weekend?

I could do either Saturday or Sunday

Daily count challenge to erinm_4600

I didn't do terrifically well, because my family insisted I needed to watch Black Mirror instead of writing, but I did manage (after 2 episodes of BM) to throw together 177 words in a WIP, so I'm calling that success!

I also made two icons for a Weekend Challenge reward this morning - nothing very fancy, but I did them, so there's that!

I am passing the challenge on to the always wonderful erinm_4600! Good luck!

Weekend Challenge Schedule 2018: Part 1

Hi everyone! *waves* Here is the new Weekend Schedule for 2018!

NOTE: We have a slight change to the way we do the challenge this year, due to popular demand! Instead of closing on Sunday night (or occasionally Monday), this year the Weekend Challenge prompts will be open to fill (and linked back to the Weekend Challenge post) until Thursday of the following week!

This does not change anything else about the challenge: The challenge post will go up on Friday (or Saturday morning at the latest); you will be advised of what you need to do to get prompts; how to fill them; and you may even get a reward, should your Weekend Challenge host be so generous! But yes, you will have longer to fill it, if you need it! YAY!

Onwards to the schedule!Collapse )

Everyone I've listed here, please advise in a comment if the dates I've assigned are good or not, and I'll organise swaps where needed.

And if anyone else wants to volunteer as back-up (in case someone has to change at the last minute) let me know in a comment here too! Thanks, everyone, and I'm sorry for the delay! ;-)

And Erin and Kit both know they're up for this week & next, so we're all good there!

Thanks again for volunteering, everyone! If anyone else wants to help but missed out, let me know - I will keep you in mind as back-up for any weekends that others can't do. ;-)
