Word Wars! Better late than never...

Eee... sorry for the late start. I got run over by jet lag, and am just now fully conscious for the day. Will be starting round 1 at 11:20am - 25 minutes per round, with five minutes between each of the four rounds.

Sound good? What's everyone working on? I'm going to try to accomplish something with the Weekend Challenge prompts I drew. :)

~Update~
Success! Word totals for this morning:
Myself- 573 words

Woo hoo! Words. 

Daily Count goes to Agdhani

Sorry I'm late passing this on. I had a rather eventual day yesterday. Only managed 22 words and that was on the round robin.
So Agdhani, take it away.

Busy Saturday

An hour this morning, then errands and putting up Halloween decorations in the yard. The only stuff left are the bits we put out on the last day cause we don't want them to get rained on ;)
Then another hour this evening.
I'll finish up this editing pass tomorrow. I could do it tonight, but I'm stiff and sore and all the dust has killed my sinuses today. Gonna call it an early night and get a fresh start in the morning.
candream Let's see what you've got!
