Oh man!
I so very wanted to be prepared for today and I'm all fail. I'm just going hit you with a few disorganized things and we can all just run around like people who want to have it together but just don't. Deal?

So first, your FLASH CHALLENGE: I gave him an ultimatum and said goodbye.

Big Buddy should be at 86%!!! How are you all doing with that?
While we're at it, we are 90% through the year. How are you with that? I am so VERY not there. I am current with my knitting schedule. Does that count?

And here is where I ask you to take a few minutes of your day to hit the previous button here at 1_million_words and troll through the entries for something you might have missed to see if anything inspires you to MAKE MORE WORDS!!!!

Now, I have a bunch of other posts to do AND write my SoJ fic...

WIP Push

How are you going? Has anyone picked up a WIP? Is it making sense or do you need a push, or someone to chat with over a difficulty? Make use of the comments space here! I will try to help if I can, or others may do so if they like.

Big Buddy December!

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 Monday chime in to tell us that you are up to snuff.

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!

Who's in?
