Word War - Weekday edition

Stay tuned for a Word War coming up at 2:00 EST/18:00 UTC! Sharpen your pencils and clear your desk for some serious word creation. Possibly with a prompt or two if I can get it together. If you'd rather work in images, that's fine too! Use this time for whatever creative endeavors you want to make some progress on.

See you in a few! I will make another post announcing the beginning of the war.

Word War - Weekday edition

READY, SET, GO!

The word war will last 30 minutes, until 2:30 EST/11:30/PST/18:30 UTC. At that time, stop writing and let us know in a comment how many words you wrote.

Don’t think, just write! (or draw, or photo edit, etc.)

If you’d like a prompt, here are a couple, in honor of the first day of school in my area.

1)
