100-in-100 icons

And as it's almost midnight here in NZ, I am finishing the icons I was making from the random words kaige68 had supplied with her posts, and actually posting them just as 2018 ends (or just after!) here in NZ. I managed to make 50 icons tonight, and I'm happy with most of them, so here they are for your pleasure!

UPDATE YOUR NUMBERS, PLEASE!!!

I am going to give everyone another 12 hours from now to update, since it's the final total for the year. Please use this time to add up your numbers and fill in the 2018 total on your count comments! This is going to be great!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

[2nd Jan edit: I'm sorry, everyone, it's too late at night for me to make sense of some figures I have, as someone deleted their journal this week and I can't work out what's missing from my count at the moment. I'll come back in the morning when my brain is fresh and work it out properly, so anyone who hasn't updated, you have another 12 hours grace to add your numbers!]

January Challenge: WIP Push

I know it's the beginning of the year; a time when people often want to start something new, but it can also be a quiet time; a good time to finish off things that have been lurking in your WIP folder!

So if, like me, you want to get some things finished before you get into any 'new' challenges this year, then drag them out and get writing along with me.

I found a great image to symbolise this month's challenge too - I love the idea of this being about a 'hot' WIP, whether it's steamy in a sexy way, or making your characters sweat in other ways, or perhaps the words are just so hot that they're pouring out of your brain and onto the page for you!
