Weekend Challenge -- Caroling, Caroling....

In my religious tradition, Christmas is still going on. It ends officially on January 6, the twelfth day.

So in honor of Christmas, I have a list of carols either fully or partially written by British writers. Give me a number between 1 and 71 and I will give you a carol and a tidbit about it. All I ask is that it not be used as someone singing the carol in your story. In return, I will add 200 words to either my ongoing original WIP or my Supernatural AU stories.

Happy writing!!

More 100-in-100 icons!

I managed to finish the 100 prompts from the 100-in-100 challenge, although only 50 of them (already linked previously) were actually before midnight on the 31st. I have now posted the other 50 here. Feel free to snag any of them should they interest you.

I feel good for having got 50 graphics done to start 2020; now I just need to get back into writing...

And I'll do the count tomorrow, so anyone who hasn't managed to get their numbers updated, you still have a good 12 hours from now! ;-)
