Start totting up the pointage...

...for The Koala is coming!

Results post will be up at the end of the month, but I usually post a prod around this time, just to get you focused. When I put up the results post, please post a quick summary of the writing activities that you've achieved this month, plus your total points.* Yes, I do conduct random spot checks at times, so keep it honest. There's no shame in a lower badge...well, not much...well, OK, so I'm just saying that, because I'm hovering between two and three points so far...the month isn't over...The Koala is inspired...

If you need a little inspiration, don't forget Phoenix is looking for stories along the theme of Extinction for a little e-publishing project. Click here for more information: http://phoenixsullivan.blogspot.com/p/extinct-call-for-submissions.html

*Smackdownees - I'm wiping the slate clean for the start of the year, if that helps. Although I will have no qualms about re-smackdowning you if necessary.

Let me just say I got a couple of thousand words written and then went and acquired the two puppies. I haven't read nor written anything since then...and I'm not likely to for the forseeable future, or at least until Spring and they are a little older and housebroken.

You can just smite me with the nail pullers in advance.

Good month so far, already. I think I've got about 18,000 words written in January, plus a 3600 word story I submitted to Phoenix's anthology. Not sure I'm doing the chisenbop right, but that looks to me like... (sixteen, carry the two, remainder pi... yup, I think that's it) 9,314.32 points. Roughly. Go ahead, check my math.

I'm trying to decide whether or not it would be gauche to enjoy the schadenfreude, since I'm not participating this time around. The question is, how mature am I...

Oh, fuck it.

Na na, na na na!

A "prod"?

With a claw attached?

Sounds like a covert attempt on my life...
