It's Monday and Everything Gonna Be All Right

It’s Monday again and January’s almost over, can you believe it?  Honestly, I’m stunned.

Nothing exciting happening in this end of the world.  I am thrilled in a dorky sort of way.  My in-laws gave me an Aerogarden for Christmas.  I’ve been wanting one of these dumb things for about ten years now and never was able to get one.  It’s kind of crazy how fast my herbs are growing though.  The basil and dill are out of control.  Can’t wait until they’re big enough to harvest so I can make some herb bread.

See, I told you – dorky.


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: surf.  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 65%!  How are you doing?  So far, so good over here.  I’m about 2k over where I need to be and that makes me happy.

Signups for January are here!  It’s a little late in the month, but signups are always welcome.    Let me know if I missed anyone or miscalculated.  There’s a reason why I’m part of a writing community and not a math community.

The Daily Count challenge is here , in case you need to check when you’re up next.

That’s about it from the desert southwest today.  How’s your week looking?  Any big or fun plans on the horizon?  Hopefully you aren’t buried under snow, but if you are, stay warm and be careful on the roads.

Daily count challenge to... shinysylver

Did a lot of non-writing things today for the most part- saw "Bohemian Rhapsody", watched a little hockey, and made a batch of chocolate chip cookies.

But I did get some writing done. 228 words, which put a nice little bow on a WIP that's been languishing in my document folder since 2012 (did it still count as "in progress" if it's been there that long?)

And now, shinysylver, it's all yours. Have fun & happy writing!
