Daily count challenge to agdhani

I am a slacker who slacks! I am on holiday so you'd think I could check in better, but there has been beach walks to take, colouring to do and games to play so I have been elsewhere, but as soon as I realised it was my turn (last night) I promised I'd get onto words asap! So this morning I have managed 334 words in a WIP, which is awesome!!! I even know what's coming next in that one, so I am very pleased as I was having trouble with some of the other WIPS.

Anyway, today is a bit drizzly and damp (although not cold) at the beach, so it's a day for the aquarium and then home for more gentle activities (maybe more words!), rather than the day at Splash Planet we had planned! Hopefully we'll do that tomorrow or the day after instead, if the weather improves.

And I pass the daily count challenge on to agdhani once more! Good luck, my friend!
