Extended & Final Weekend Challenge for 2017!

Now if you saw my last post you would know we missed the challenge last weekend and that we're kicking off the next one a few days early!

So here it is! I'm putting up some 'remembered' and 'forgotten' prompts here for everyone to look at and hopefully be inspired by, rather than getting you to comment  asking for one, as I may be a bit random in my attentions this week.

Should you choose to create something based on one (or more!) of the prompts, please link it back to this post by midday Sunday 31st PST, and the words will be in the count for 2017.  I will make you an icon or do a drabble in the fandom of your choice, as soon after that time as I can, as your reward!  Yes, the time does end a little sooner on Sunday than usual, but this is in order to give me time to get your reward in for the 2017 count too.

- Forgot what they said yesterday
- Forgot themselves and blurted out words they wished they hadn't
- Forgot why they came here
- Forgot the name of the person in bed with them the morning after
- Forgot to lock the door
- Forgot who's turn it is

- Remembered what happened last night
- Remembered to bring back the book they borrowed last year
- Remembered what food someone loves
- Remembered someone's favourite song
- Remembered the movie they saw that actor in
- Remembered why they're not allowed to speak first

Number of words or graphics does not matter. Fandom can be whichever you choose, or something original. If it's part of something more that you intend to finish later or is just an excerpt of something you're currently working on, that's fine.

The point if the exercise is just to create something to boost our count before the year ends. At the end of November we had a little over 5 million words counted, so what would be really cool would be to see us hit 6 million by the end of the month.

It's  a lot, but we've done it before, so let's pull out all the stops! Take every opportunity you have and get those words in!   We had SoJ and we had Advent and I know they will have boosted our numbers already, so along with the 12 Days of WIPness, use this last weekend challenge to do your best! Also, don't forget that any of the  Word of the Day prompts or anything in the weekly inspirational prompts are also up for you to use.

So come on down... who's  with me? WE CAN TOTALLY DO THIS!!! ;-)
