Daily Count Challenge to Bizarra

Spent most of the day preparing for the Christmas dinner we had at our home tonight. It was a nice time, but meant that I didn't sit down to the computer until nearly 11pm. I did manage 142 words toward a comment fic that I'd been working on (and then I had to delete 43 of them due to LJ's limitations on the length of comments).

I plan to get some more writing done between now and the end of the month, but for now, I pass the torch to bizarra. Have an amazingly productive day!

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 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!
