Daily Count Challenge to sharpiesgal!

I had a really good writing day yesterday, though it's only because I procrastinated. I have my entries for LJ Idol due tonight (we have 5 topics!!), so last night I wrote 1,100 words to finish up two of them. I have 1.5 topics left to write today, but at least it's doing wonders for my monthly word count!

And now, passing the baton to sharpiesgal! Good luck and go get 'em!
