Weekend Challenge Bizzare Foods

Greetings peeps!

I'm sharpiesgal and it's my turn at the weekend challenge. The theme is going to be bizzare foods. (Yes, I've been watching the Travel Channel alot of late.)

Give me a number between 1 to 10 and I'll give you a food prompt to use in a fic or fan art however you see fit.

Rewards will either be a drabble or a 100 words on one of my wips.

So let's get cracking and see how many words we can wrack up this weekend.

Daily count challenge to tkeylasunset

I haven't done any writing in FOREVER and have been in such a slump, but getting picked for the challenge forced me to sit down at the computer and I actually came up with over a thousand words... and for a fandom I've never written in before. AND I'm pretty happy with what I've written. Talk about proof that these little challenges WORK. Yay! Thanks!

Now I hand off to tkeylasunset! I hope you are as happy with your creative output as I am with mine. Go forth and create allll the things!

Comment Fic Friday

Hello everyone! My goodness, I have been remiss! My reminders have slipped again, and I was so caught up in the 100-in-100 challenge, I had completely forgotten about giving you a prompt for comment fic for weeks now! Let's fix that now!

The prompt this time around is:

The Key

Now whether this is something like the key to a good recipe, the key to someone's heart, or that scene where one of your favourite characters gives their boyfriend or girlfriend the key to their home so they can come and go as they please, I'd love to see your take on it!

A comment fic is generally somewhere between 700-800 words, but we'll take more or less here at 1_million_words, so if you don't quite get to 700, or if you can't stop at 800, that's no problem - just give us what you've got! You can either post your creation directly in a comment to this post, or else post it where you normally keep your fics and link us in a comment here!

Any fandom (or original fic!), any genre, any style! And if graphics is more your thing, how about 8-10 icons or a banner/sigtag or two on the subject? Go forth and create! ;-)
