Say What Friday

Good morning word warriors!

It's Friday!!!

We've survived another week.

How goes the creating? Have you been inspired by this week's offerings for August Rush? If so, fabulous. If not, there are three more weeks of inspiring images to come.

Speaking of inspiration....

This week's quote comes from one of my favorite movie characters.

"What we do in life echoes in eternity."

Weekend Challenge: One Liners and Headlines

Welcome to the weekend! I hope everyone gets a little 'me' time in - and some room for creativity, too. Speaking of which, since work has deep fried my brain lately I had to get a little creative about coming up with prompt ideas. And so I've pulled together a list of short phrases - some of them lines from a particular sitcom I happened to watch this week, and others the headlines of emails in my email boxes.

I have enough for two prompts each - so if you are in then just give a shout to say so! I'll randomize the list and give you two prompts. Use them however inspires; feel free to interpret them, reinterpret them, stick all the letters in *another* randomizer and come up with anagrams - whatever works for you!

Achieve some fic or a piece of art with them by Thursday PM and I will write you a ficlet, make you icons or put words on a WIP.

Who's in?!
