It's Monday Again!

Hello March!  I’m hoping that the new month is bringing some milder weather for everyone on the East Coast/Midwest US.  We got another bout of rain, but it’s been beautiful despite that.  So, no complaints here.  Well, aside from my younger child constantly reminding me that this school year is almost over and she will be a senior before long.  *sigh*

Okay, enough of the mom woes.  Hahaha.  How’d you fare last week?  Did you have a good February?  If not, what can we do to help inspire you?


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: herbs.  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 10%!  It's really early in the month so if you're behind, don't sweat it.

Signups for March are here!  I shouldn’t have made any math mistakes here because 10% of a round number is relatively easy.  But then, this IS me we’re talking about so…

4. The Daily Count challenge is here , all ready to go for a new month.

5. There is a March challenge about to start, although I’m not 100% positive what it is yet.  But you should be seeing a post soon since bingo is officially over now.   

Anyway, happy Monday!  Let’s go out and have an amazing week, we’ve got this, guys!

March's Monthly Challenge: Three Sentence Ficathon

What is the Three Sentence Ficathon?

This is a challenge where you answer a prompt with a fic consisting of only three sentences.  Simple right?  The sentences can be as long or as short as you like and it's open to all fandoms.

Each day I will leave a prompt, perhaps it will be funny quote from Monty Python, Blackadder or The State or something more on the mystery, action/adventure side of things and hopefully the prompts will inspire your three sentence fic.  You can post your three sentence fics after the prompt or create a new entry here or with links to your journal, whichever works best for you.

Lastly, HAVE FUN!!

Day !'s Prompt:  "I’ve got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments.”
