Daily count to... Dreamy

Made some significant progress on a story that's due tomorrow. Not too worried about making the deadline as I'm mostly done and I have been notorious for last minute writing since a book report I did in the fourth grade (hadn't even read the book until the night before).

Dreamy, it's your turn. May the day bring you words and abundant creativity!

Say What Friday

Hello all....

Happy Friday!

We have survived another week. Yay us!

Four days until Christmas. Let the last minute panic begin....

This week's quote pays homage to famlies.

"The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof."
Richard Bach

Merry Christmas y'all.

Weekend Challenge: White Elephants

Happy Holidays, everyone!

With the third post, today - Spoiler alert: you'll get two more from me, tomorrow - I bring you the actual Weekend Challenge! (the weather is starting to turn, for the third or fourth time, today, so here's to me typing fast, before we lose power!)

I have a list of 50 questionable white elephant gifts. If you're not familiar with the term, a white elephant is an impractical, generally-inexpensive gift meant more for fun.

Hit me with any number(s) from 1-50 and I'll hook you up with a sketchy object that may or may not end up under your favorite character's tree.*


*obviously, you are not beholden to the holiday season in your writing/artwork. ♥
