Monday Again!

Is it just me or is this year flying by at a rapid pace?  School’s getting ready to start here in a little over a week.  It feels like they only just got out for summer break.  My kid is not happy, to say the least!  The other is having mixed feelings as she’s starting college at the end of the month.  Someone send help.  I’m going to need it.


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: university.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy 16%!  How are you doing?  I have a bunch of writing scattered between two journals at the moment.  I probably ought to count them eventually.  Hah.

If you still want to, you can sign up for August here!  Additional note: You can sign up for the Daily Count Challenge here as well.

4. Our August challenge is August Rush!  Since the challenge hasn’t officially started as of my writing this, go check the tag because it starts today, August 6!     

Let’s hear it for another great week!  What plans do you have to make it an awesome one?  I plan on not acquiring any more books so I can spend less time reading and more time writing.  And should this ever happen, please contact Sam, Dean, and Cas because the Apocalypse is on its way.  Let us know how last week was and what you’ve got on the radar for this week.

Happy Monday y’all!
