Daily Count Challenge - June!

JUNE WORDS ARE BUSTING OUT ALL OVER!


Comment here and we'll put you on the list! It's as simple as stepping up when your name is called and doing your utmost to meet your own daily word count (whatever that may be). When you finish, write a small bragging post and call up the next contestant!

Be accountable for one day!

Who wants in?
Big buddy

Big Buddy June!

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 once a week 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!

Word of the Day 05/25/19 Whataboutism

Whataboutism (noun)
whataboutism [ hwuht-uh-bou-tiz-uhm, wuht-, hwot-, wot- ]


noun
1. a conversational tactic in which a person responds to an argument or attack by changing the subject to focus on someone else’s misconduct, implying that all criticism is invalid because no one is completely blameless: Excusing your mistakes with whataboutism is not the same as defending your record.


Origin: First recorded in 2000–05; from the phrase what about? + -ism

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
