11 Days of Mad Libs!.:.Day 6

We've all (I hope?) seen and played Mad Libs, right? Where you have a story with blanks and instructions for filling in those blanks to complete the story (a noun, a place, a person you love, an animal...and so on), well that's what we're going to do with for the next 11 days!

The catch?

You can only, hopefully, use words that have been featured in the Word of the Day (including the Word of the Day for the current day). Obviously, if none of the Word of the Days can work, you can pick another one.

There is now a Word of the Day Masterlist!

Each day I'll post the link to 3 different, again, I hope, mad libs and you guys can fill them in and share the wackiness you've come up with!

On with the Libs!

Today's Mad Libs are:

Hve fun and I can't wait to see the stories you come up with!

Say What?

Hello peeps!

I'm back with a quote that will hopefully inspire some words, images or both.

"If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it, even if I did not have the ability in the beginning."

Mahatma Gandhi

So in the spirit of this quote, lets go and write that one more word or create that one more image and beat January's total word count.

Weekend Challenge - Happy Spring!!

Hello my lovlies! I am your host for this weekend's challenge.

In my part of the world, it's becoming spring - flowers are blooming, birds are singing, it's rainy/sunny/rainy. So this weekend's challenge is all about spring!

I may not be on my computer much this weekend so I'm posting all the prompts. You can pick and choose as many or as few as you want. For everyone who posts a work in response to one or more prompts by midnight Monday will receive four custom LJ icons. (I'm not the world's best at icons but I can Google like a pro!)

If you want to use one of more prompts, post a note in the comments so we'll all know what you're up to. Not that you have to - it would just be cool.

Hope these help the words bloom!!!

Picture prompts Edit to say I re-uploaded the pictures. I don't have any idea why they aren't showing up. I'm so sorry if you can see them.

Have fun! And happy spring!!!

Big Buddy April

Awesome April!

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month of April (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you every 6(ish) days to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every 6 days chime in to tell us that you've produced 20% of them.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!
