Rare Pairs: Day 7

Today's prompt:  One of your rare pair is the other’s Imaginary Friend


Hi everyone! I want to apologize to you all for being such a horrible host last month with the Crossover Challenge and the WIP Push. It turned out to be a much harder month than I was expecting. But I'm really sorry for not doing more to help you all make those words.

That said, if you started on a crossover or you're getting close to finishing up a WIP, if you want to get them done in the next few days, post me the link here or at the original post (or if you aren't posting it, just comment and I'll take your word for it) and I'll consider the challenge(s) completed. (I have a couple huge work deadlines this week, so I'm not going to be able to get to the reward banners until next week anyway.)

If you already finished, please also link it to me here or just comment below! I don't want to miss anyone!

Thank you to all of you who did participate. I hope you had fun! And I'm very sorry again to everyone.

Another Awesome Monday!

Oh my gosh - I completely spaced out when it was my last turn to talk on Monday, so I am determined not to let this one pass, even though I am about to leave the house with the family to go see 'Isle of Dogs'! I have about ten mins to prep this, then I will post it when we get home.

I am so looking forward to this movie - I love what I've seen so far of Wes Anderson's movies, particularly 'Fantastic Mr Fox' and as this is another stop-motion film in a similar vein, I have great expectations of it! Will let you know what I thought!

How is your Monday going? Any plans for the week's awesomeness yet? My own mostly centre around logistics for a trip later in the year, and while I know I am sadly lacking on the whole words front (even the WIP Push didn't get me writing, I'm sorry to say), I'm not sure that words will flow this week either, but I am aiming to make some icons if nothing else!

Here are the reminders and other things you need to help kick you off for the week:

1 – FLASH CHALLENGE – Your amazing Monday prompt is - "seeking something or someone lost" Give me 100 words or a graphic for the fabulous sake of saying you’ve done it!

2 – Reminder of last week’s challenges:
Resilient - Circumferential - May Challenge - Rare Pairs (and check the tags for the daily prompts thereafter!)
67 - WWoW - Busticate - N - 29 - Paseo - O - Behindhand - WC - Road Trip! - 298 - Phraseology - Truckle - P


And 3 – Big Buddy 23% - Are you all on schedule?
sharpiesgal - 230
cmk418 - 920
agdhani - 6,900
candream - 1,150
katleept - 7,130
flipflop_diva - 2,300
thatwasjustadream.dreamwidth.org – 2,300

[Edit: 'Isle of Dogs' was great! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and had some really good laughs, plus it made me think. Go see it!]

Let's be careful out there, everyone, and let's make words!
