Daily Count Challenge to simplyn2deep!

I had all these grand plans to start the new year off with an amazing word count, but that did not happen, and I have been sitting at 0 until Kaige tagged me.

So yesterday, I finally came up with a good plot for my Holly Poly fic, and I got the first 363 words written, with hopes to get a lot more written today.

And now, I am passing the torch to simplyn2deep! May the words be ever in your favor!!

Daily Count Challenge to erinm_4600

Whoops, I forgot I was supposed to be writing right now. I mean...I need to get 5000 words this month, so I don't know how I could have forgotten.

When I saw that I'd been tagged, I got right to writing. Managed to get 520 words! (I'm only 390 behind what I should be at for the goal I set for myself at the end of December.)

Anyway, on to you, erinm_4600! Let's see what you've got!
