Say What Friday

Hello all. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I hope everyone is enjoying the day.

Easter is right around the corner, so keep an eye out for baskets full of candy and wayward plot bunnies.

This week's quote comes from the birthday boy himself. Mr. Tim Curry.

"I'm not a conventional leading man at all and have not wished to be."

Write a 100 words or create 2 icons/1 banner and receive a reward of a drabble in a fandom of your choice or 100 words added to one of my wips.

Happy creating.
Hi, there! Hope April is treating you well. It's been quite a week 'round here: Moving furniture, moving *everything* including, of course, the cat - who never asked for this. It's had me thinking about change and about liminal spaces - those times when we are 'in between' and so I thought I'd make that part of this weekend's challenge.

Give me a shout to let me know you are in- and I'll send you two prompts: A list of 5 random words, and a quote or slogan about either change or liminal spaces. Could be interesting to see where it goes!

Write or art something by Thursday night, and I'll gladly make you an icon or two, or write you a ficlet!
