Volunteers and Ideas for next year's challenges, please!

Hi everyone! Hope your Christmas was a good one, if you celebrate! If you don't celebrate, I hope your days are going well in this last week of the year!

Our poll last month showed we still have a good amount of interest in continuing into 2019, so here we are again! It's time to start setting up for the challenges next year! I will be running a WIP Push in January, and hope to get some prompts and posts sorted for that soon.

Under the cut is a list of names of people who commented about offering/continuing with specific help at the comm next year, so check if your name is there and let me know what email you are using now so I can include you in our organising of the monthly challenges after January. PM me if you don't want to post your email on the comm.

If you offered weekly/daily challenge help only and aren't able to help with the monthly challenges, that's fine - you can opt out of the emails, so let me know. And if your name is not there and you do want to help, comment here with what you would like to help with, and tell me an email I can use (for monthly challenges).

Weekend challengers, can you comment with any dates in the first half of 2019 that you CANNOT help out, so I can begin working on the schedule.

I will add comments here for you all to add your comments under each specific area, so that I can keep everything straight. Please reply in the appropriate comment thread.

I hope my comments above make sense - you'll have to excuse my post-Christmas brain. I think I have car-lag after driving home from family visits yesterday!
