Weekend Challenge: Day or Night

And because I am very slack and have not managed to get the schedule done, it's my turn again, having not got in gear enough mid-week to even ask anyone to get onto this! So, I decided I'd find some pictures from different times of the day and night to inspire you this week!

Give me a comment to say whether you want MORNING, AFTERNOON, EVENING or NIGHT.

I will then give you a picture at random out of the ones I've collected, and it will be yours to do with as you want. Write a new chapter/scene in an existing fic, write a drabble or double-drabble (or more) from something the picture inspires; or create a couple of icons or a banner from the picture itself (if you want a larger version of the picture for this once you've seen what I've given you, let me know and I'll get it for you).

Come on down! you have until Thursday 31st Jan to create something in order to win a reward of either: 100 words in one of my WIPs, a drabble in a fandom of your choice (from the list of fandoms I write in), or an icon of your choice.

Apologies that this wasn't up earlier in the day...

Good Lord, it's almost the end of January and I still haven't added any counters. Here is the WORDS counter at last.

WIP Push: Check in!

And I have been very slack all around, and not checked up on you all. I hope you've been doing well with your chosen WIP? Tell me how you're doing here! Need any help? Want to ask any questions?

Personally, I am making good progress (even though I've basically had a week away from writing at this point), but don't feel it'll be done by the end of the month. However, all is not lost - it is progress on something that has been languishing for some years now, so I feel very happy that I have added to it and may yet get it completed this year!

ALSO: Would anyone like to run a BINGO challenge in February? Comment here if you can do this.
