Sunday Word Wars

I had a good writing day yesterday. I made good progress on the first draft of a reverse bang fic due at the end of April and I even managed to work on my NaNo project some. Feeling a little lazy today, so this might just be what the doctor ordered.

Round 2: 10:35 AM PDT (17:35 UTC) to 11:00 AM PDT (18:00 UTC)

Who's ready for some more word wars?

Daily Count Challenge to simplyn2deep.

I wrote 4 Drabbles (1 x MCU, 2 x Doctor Who & 1 x The Book Thief) with a total of 427 words. :D I call this a success because I had 3 ideas for Sunday Word Wars and managed to write them all down. And it's also a success because I had no idea for Saturday Word Wars but still managed to write 100 words about Doctor Who! :D And all stories are in English! :D Which is another success. :D So: Success³! :D

I didn't do graphics because I only came online for Sunday Word Wars and only did some writing. And now it's already 09:33 pm (with "Jack Taylor" starting in 20 minutes). So there will be no graphics. But at least there were words. :D

I'm passing the torch to simplyn2deep. Good luck and have fun! :D
