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

Just a quick dip in so you know I still exist...


Well, actually I did yesterday... as I was busy getting Game of Thrones screencaps (it took ages to wade through SO MANY GOOD ONES) until 10.30pm last night (much longer than half an hour from start to finish, unlike my amazing co-conspirator, hiddlepinebatch! She's a miracle-worker!!!).

So, yeah, it kinda slipped my mind, even though I knew the day before that it needed to be done soon; I thought I'd give everyone on the 'past' side of the planet (i.e. those of you on the other side of the date line!) a chance to get those counts in before I got onto it last night. And then last night I remembered I needed to get screen-caps, and before you knew it, it was bedtime!

I'm at the orifice right now so I don't have my spreadsheet with me to get it done here, so I will get ON IT as soon as I get home tonight. In any case, it gives anyone else running behind a chance to update their July numbers, so go on! Get on with it now! *shoos them in the right direction*.

SORRY, in any case; I'm on it later though, I promise!

Weekend Challenge: Superheroes

I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge in this beautiful and not too hot weekend in August and I decided we needed prompts from my favorite superhero TV shows/movies--WOO HOO!!

And just to make things even more awesome, my favorite superheroes are from both Marvel and DC Comics:  Wonder Woman, Supergirl, The Flash, Captain America, Dr. Strange and Spider-Man.  I also threw in a couple of lines from different villains just to keep things interesting

Choose a number between 1 and 40 and I will give you an epically badass line that I hope inspires you.

Please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you.  Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

Daily count to...flyingharmony

I'm doing it now because I know I will forget tonight.
This month I was devoting to making graphics for August Rush, but on non-Rush days and the weekends (at least until my vacation the 24th-31st) I will write.
[where I do more blah blah blah]
So...what I did today was start the outline process for 2 stories of a series. I'm kind of excited about this and will likely work on it the rest of the year.
Its called the Scorched Earth series and will include H50 and Teen Wolf. As of right now, they won't be crossing over but sort of dealing with the same ideas: something secret has gotten out and it's time to destroy information and go underground until it's safe to return.
Anyway...that's what I'm working on and why I'm posting this now.
Passing on to flyingharmony. Be successful in your words!
Having a Bad Day

Say What Friday

Greetings word warriors!

Sorry I'm late with this, but it has been one of those weeks.

Hopefully, everyone has survived with their sanity relatively intact.

This week's quote comes from two of my favorite philosphers, Mark Twain and Jimmy Buffett.

"Be good and you will be lonesome. Be lonesome and you will be free."

Do with it what you will.

Remember August Rush begins Monday.

July count!


The count for July goes like this:

Image word: 1,843 x 1,000. This is up by 123! (and I'm proud to say 74 of them were mine - considering how badly I've done with words this year, this really made me feel better!)

Written word: 1,515,441. This is up from the last count by a wonderful 162,167!!

1_million_words Total words to date 2018: 3,358,441!!!

Not quite 3.5 mill, but with August Rush starting next Monday, we can easily make that (and then some) this month!

Get ready to roll with more great creations SOON!
