Weekend Challenge: Freedom!

Ack! I still haven't done the roster! So you get me again!

I've got random "free" things to give away as prompts today, and I'm doing this by the skin of my teeth (read: my list is in my head), so expect nothing and you may get something useful!

Write or make something graphic worth at least 200 words from the prompt before Thursday midnight in your local timezone, and I will reward you with an icon or two of your choice or 100 words in a WIP.

Come on down and collect a prompt or two!

Word sprints today!

It's been a while, but I figured the best way to kick start my creativity is to do some word sprints. For the uninitiated, these are timed writing sessions, where we check in with words written during each round and cheer each other on- part kick-start, part healthy competetion. So I'm going to hold 4 rounds running from 12:30 to 2pm CDT. If you're able to join in, please do so.

Round 1- 12:30-12:50
Round 2- 12:55-1:10
Round 3- 1:15-1:35
Round 4- 1:40-2

Grab your prompts and meet me back here around 12:30!
