Who's Up for a Word War?

It's been a slower than usual writing week for me and I need to get things going. So I'm gathering up my old & new prompts and would love to have some company (and maybe a little friendly competition). If you have the time to join me for a round or four, I'll be starting at 2pm Central.

Round 1: 2-2:25pm
Round 2: 2:30-2:55pm
Round 3: 3:05-3:30pm
Round 4: 3:35-4pm

Daily count to... agdhani

A bout of word warring got me back in the groove and I managed 796 words for the day.

You're up, agdhani. Go get those words!
