Passing the Daily Torch to Sharpie!

Well, sadly my creative brain was not able to achieve words yesterday. But... oddly enough I'm feeling an interest in playing with batch files today and maybe trying to make a simple text game - so I'm going to spend a few minutes here and there goofing around with that where I can. Maybe it'll spark something for my WIP. Meantime, I pass the torch to Sharpie - good luck on your challenge day!

Daily Count goes to Jennytork


I had a good day. Wrote a total of 672 words between round robin and wip. Wip keeps wanting more words the greedy bastard...lol

Passing the torch to Jennytork before heading to bed to dream of pretty boys doing naughty things.

I wish you good luck and many words.

Say What Friday

Welcome one and all to another episode of Say What Friday.

I hope your week was uneventful, but filled with words or other fun things.

I found the perfect quote to sum up humanity's obsession with celebrities.

"It's not what they say about you, it's what they whisper."

Errol Flynn

Do with it what you will.

If anyone comes up with a hundred words or one graphic, I will reward them with a drabble from a fandom of their choice or add words to a wip.
