Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Numbers challenge!

The rules are:

1. Each post is either a hundred words or more/ or you can make a graphic/art
2. However the number influences you, go with the flow! I don’t care how you use or abuse the number! (I’ll give some suggestions/ideas/other languages to help you along if you get stuck!)
3. Post anywhere – tumblr, amazon.com, your journal, AO3, the dreaded ff.net, your bedroom wall, etc.
4. There is NO time limit.

And the number shall be ...664!

Go forth and create!

Quick note from your co-mod!

Hey everyone, I just wanted to apologise for not being around much these days. I have been very tired up in RL for some time now because we are in the process of selling our house and buying another. This continues to involve a LOT of time doing things that I will not go into here, and that means I haven't the time or energy to get online as much as I have done in the past. As we don't settle on the house we're buying until the end of June, there's still a lot to do, especially considering our old house hasn't sold yet either. So, I'm sorry to say, I will continue to be rather erratic for a while.

Anyway, I have been off in la-la land much of the time, so I haven't weighed in here at the comm. on the whole ToS debacle, let alone do many of the things I would normally do here. In fact, I have barely written any words this year, so far, and I can't see that improving any time soon. I will do my best to remind Weekend Challengers and the monthly peeps that your time is coming, but if you could all keep an eye on your place in the schedule, in case I get behind, that would be awesome! ;-)

I just wanted to let you all know that I haven't abandoned you; and I do intend to come back to the fold again properly once we have unpacked and relaxed into our new home, sometime after the end of June - hopefully I'll be back up to speed in time to run August Rush without any issues!

And as for what we are doing with the comm... well, Kaige, Dreamy and I have have yet to discuss more in depth, but know that I have personally just read ALL of your comments (and naemi's post on why we shouldn't panic too, thanks, love!) on Kaige's post asking for your thoughts, so we will be having that discussion at some point soon.

In the meantime, all is as it was, and we will continue on here at LJ until we make any decisions in any direction. For now, that's all I have, but know I am still lurking around here somewhere! *hugs*
