First Monday of the Month!

Happy July!  The best of all months as far as I’m concerned.  But what do I know, right?  I’ve been told I’m a freak of nature because I love the dry, desert heat we have here.   Despite the heat, things are going well here and I’m ready for the second half of the year to start.

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: fireworks.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration.

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy 2%!  How are you doing?  It’s the beginning of the month, let’s make this a good one!

asphaltcowgrrl - 300
sharpiesgal - 40
agdhani - 1,000
cmk418 - 100
katleept - 620
captainamergirl - 80
flipflop_diva - 200
csichick_2 - 500

If you still want to, you can sign up for July here!  Additional note: You can sign up for the Daily Count Challenge here as well.

4. Our July challenge is the ever popular Pool Party!  Right now, Kaige is taking fandom requests.  You can find the first two here and here (as I’m prepping this on Sunday, I don’t have Monday’s yet, but you can always check the tag, too).

5. Calls for NaNoCamp are out as well and you can find it here.

Happy 4th of July if you’re in the US.  If you’re English then I’m sorry.  Hahaha.  For everyone else, let’s make this an awesome week!

Weekend Challenge volunteers, please!

I know I've left it a bit late as our schedule for the first half of 2018 has just run out, but please sign in here with a comment if you'd like to run one or more Weekend Challenges between now and the first weekend in January 2019! I will run one for the upcoming weekend (unless someone has a burning desire to do it?), but thereafter, all weekends are up for grabs!

If you've never done it before, check out the 'weekend: challenge' tag for ideas on how it works, or see the link to the last weekend challenge schedule at the top left on the main page of the comm.

If you volunteer, please let me know any dates that WON'T work for you, and if you can do one or more weekends.

Thank you!

I'll be doing the count tonight, in case anyone wants to know - I'm currently still at the orifice and can't see my spreadsheet here - so apologies if you were expecting it already by now!

June Count!



WOOHOO!!!




The count for June goes like this:

Image word: 1720 x 1,000. This is up by an incredible 627!!! (with a huge effort by one person making this pop! She knows who she is *kisses*)

Written word: 1,353,274. This is up from the last count by a whopping 185,184!!!




1_million_words Total words to date 2018: 3,073,274!!!

YES!!! We hit the 3rd MILLION!!!



THAT IS A FANTASTIC EFFORT, everyone! You all make this such a rewarding place to be a part of, even if I have been less than present lately. I need to make up for that this month, and as it's POOL PARTY in July, I'm looking out for a fandom that will inspire me - there's plenty to choose from, so check out the pool party tags this month to join in and make some more words!

We can totally reach another great number by the end of the new month!

Daily Count Challenge to bizarra.

I created 4 icons for a Challenge in my Land-Comm. I also wanted to write a fanfic about this. But this Challenge ends in 5 minutes. So I really have no time for this. ;o)

I have some ideas for the Summer Challenge in a German Community. So there will be some writing later this month. :o)

I'm passing the torch to bizarra. Good luck and have fun. :o)
