This leads the quinary into the vigesimal scale, and produces the combination so often found in certain parts of the world.
THE NUMBER CONCEPT|LEVI LEONARD CONANT

Considering the fact that the use of vigesimal counting was universal among Celtic races, this explanation is quite gratuitous.
THE NUMBER CONCEPT|LEVI LEONARD CONANT

Any number system which passes the limit 10 is reasonably sure to have either a quinary, a decimal, or a vigesimal structure.
THE NUMBER CONCEPT|LEVI LEONARD CONANT

In the following scale the vigesimal structure is still more obscure.

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

Numbers Challenge

The rules are:


1. Each post is either a hundred words or more/ or you can make a graphic/art

2. However the number influences you, go with the flow! I don’t care how you use or abuse the number! (I’ll give some suggestions/ideas/other languages to help you along if you get stuck!)

3. Post anywhere – tumblr, amazon.com, your journal, AO3, the dreaded ff.net, your bedroom wall, etc.

4. There is NO time limit.





And the number shall be ...673!

Go forth and create!

June Challenge: Drabbles & Icons!

We're a bit late to get started this month, as unfortunately, katyastarling has had another setback and can't run the challenge she had hoped to do this month, so I've had to work on the fly to get something up as soon as possible. Hopefully, Katya will come back later in the year, (or early next year at the latest) with her awesome idea instead. So for now, you get me and my BIG IDEAS in her place! ;-)

And here is what I've come up with:

A DRABBLE/ICON CHALLENGE!!!




Every day you will see a post with 4 prompts like so: 1. a place, 2. a colour, 3. an action and 4. a random word.

All you have to do is create an icon or a drabble (or more) for that day using at least one (or more) of the prompts.

There are no other rules! Any fandom/s (or none); any character/s; a one-off each day or a continuous story for several days (or all 28!); post it one day at a time, post 7 creations altogether once a week, or just post 2800 words/28 icons in one lump at the end! It's all up to you. Take the prompts and run with them; no interpretation is wrong!

And because I should have had this up at the beginning of Monday, I am giving you two days worth of prompts now.

Yesterday's prompts are:
1. a place: at the beach
2. a colour: cerise
3. an action: running
4. a random word: thick

Today's prompts are:
1. a place: under a tree
2. a colour: forest green *wink*
3. an action: swallowing
4. a random word: doubtful


Now, get creating, everyone! I know you'll have fun! And hopefully, at the end, I will give out some pretty participation banners! ;-)
