Daily Count Challenge to someone...

I feel like I actually enjoyed writing for the first time in a while today! I wrote a total of 1063 words if you count some editing and some note taking as well as a new scene for one of my stories. It's not the WIP I was hoping to work on, but if I stay inspired I think I might use it for a challenge I signed up for that is due in March. Whatever works right?

The February Daily Count Challenge list isn't out yet so I don't know who to tag. But good luck to whoever it is!

Welcome to the February Daily Count Challenge!

Behind the cut you will find a list of everyone participating in the Daily Count Challenge and their day. I'm 85% certain I got everyone who signed up and put them on the correct days, but if I missed up, or a day doesn't work out, comment to this entry and let me know.

When I started this (on Monday), I was healthy, but in a matter of 2 days, I came down with something and now I'm not sure if all of this is correct. Also, if your name is not on this, I probably missed it because you signed up after I scheduled it. I'm sorry.

Every Thursday night I will put up a reminder post for the next week. If someone forgets to post that they've done their writing for the day, the next person will know it's their turn and can post after they've done their writing.

For example, it's 05 February and bizarra hasn't made a post saying that they've done their daily writing, on 06 February, Dreamy can post when they've done their writing to keep things moving on.

I think I've covered everything, but if not, please let me know.
