Week #23 (19)

Share your setting

As you know I’m very nosey & want to know all about your work with 100 Word Challenge. I also know that there are classes across the world that are as nosey so do get in touch to tell us how you organise your 100WC sessions. If you are on Twitter you will see some winners of the showcase receiving their certificates but not everyone sees those. So, let’s share them here. You can post in the comments or just email them over. I can add them to the newsletter then. We love pictures!


We had enough nominations to have a separate page this week but there were still not many. Do share any post you think was really good, for whatever reason & they can celebrate with a certificate & blog badge. Send me the ID number by Weds midday (UK time), Check out the latest showcase by pressing ‘Special Showcase’ in the tabs above.

We also have a great toon from Terry Culkin to go with them so do watch out on Twitter for them!
