A to Z Challenge

Here’s the rules:
1) 100 words or 1 graphic for each letter of the alphabet.

It’s that easy.
And perk – It’s the alphabet you know what’s coming if you want to get ahead of it. There is no need for your work to all connect. There is no need for them to be in order.

Like the Numbers challenge, if you are stuck or would like a random word to use, poke me and I will provide.

WOOP! WOOP!


It's not last year's five mill, but it's still FREAKING AMAZING!, considering all we've been through in 2020. Give yourselves a pat on the back! Now, come to the party in the comments and celebrate!

This year, I'd love to hear something, no matter how big or small, from everyone who contributed - tell us what you're most personally proud of doing in 2020, AND/OR, do you have a compliment about someone else in the comm? Maybe they wrote the MOST incredible fic that you love; maybe they made a great graphic, or maybe they were just your inspiration or lent an ear when you needed it.

COME ON DOWN TO THE PARTY and tell us about it in a comment!



And of course, we're starting fresh for a new year now, so keep your numbers somewhere safe, and I'll get the count posts up for 2021 as soon as I can! We'll also announce what's happening with monthly challenges soon, and be asking for volunteers for things as well, so keep watching!

And.... let's be creative out there!!! ;-)

Storyboard/brainstorming/writing planning resource

So, was looking around for something and stumbled across https://milanote.com/. If you scroll down to the very bottom of the intro screen you can click on templates to see what all they have on offer.  The creative writing looked really interesting for setting up stories and plotting out things, but there's a bunch of other options in there as well. There's a limited free option, not quite sure what they meant by some of the limitations they had listed, but they have paid options that allow you to do more as well.

So, I got no fic words done, but I did make a graphic today so that's something. And I stitched up a new face mask type for the hubby to try. Mainly been working on copying over chapters from AO3 to here and then finding new places to host pics to share since apparently photobucket is requiring you to pay for that ability now. And I kept falling down the rabbit hole of all the posts about what's going on here in the good ol' US *hysterical laughter*.  So yeah, skargasm tag you're it!
