Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Monday's rain turns into Tuesday's sun!

Monday is here again (or for most of you it is, anyway; it's just turned into Tuesday here!). I hope you all had a great weekend, and for most of you that spring is well and truly in the air. In these parts, autumn has arrived; colours are changing in many places (even though in this mild city we don't exactly get extreme temperatures) and the air is cooling down. I had a good, if busy weekend - my daughter got back from her amazing trip to Borneo, and there was much to do and talk about!

Words have not been going so well this month for me, so I need to buckle down in May, and the perfect way to kick into that is that our wonderful kaige68 is going to run a Music Challenge for the month! She'll be posting about that soon, so keep your eyes peeled. April's Crossover Challenge is almost at the end too, so watch out for a final post about that from your hostess, flipflop_diva, to report in on how you did!

On the upside, I did manage to finish the 1000 piece jigsaw that's been on my coffee table for a couple of months (thank you for the inspiration, K!), and have made excellent progress on the back of the baby jacket I am knitting for a workmate's baby (due in October; hopefully I can stop procrastinating on that and get it done well in time!).

So this week, I pledge to get the fic I finished some weeks back edited and off to beta, and then to get buckled down and into work on the next fic that needs finishing.

But enough about me! How are you guys going to make your week fabulous?

Here are the reminders and other things you need to help kick you off for the week:

1 – FLASH CHALLENGE – Your Monday prompt is - Rise - Give me 100 words or a graphic for the sake of saying you’ve done it!

2 –I'm sorry I won't be able to gather the links for last week's challenges, but please, if you need prompts or don't want to miss anything, scroll back through last week's entries, or check out the appropriate tags!

3 – Big Buddy 97% - Are you all on schedule so far this month? (I have been woefully inadequate, I'm afraid)

agdhani - 48,500/48.5 hours
asphaltcowgrrl - 19,400
shinysylver - 14,550
simplyn2deep - 9,700
csichick_2 - 2,910
cmk418 - 1,455
sharpiesgal -11,640
bizarra - 9,700
haldoor - 2,910
jstabe - 4,850
flipflop_diva - 4,850

4 – This month's challenge is How I Met... (crossover challenge)! This finishes up on the 3rd May, so get those last words in now!

5 - Update your counts this week! I should be adding everything up on Wednesday, but knowing me it'll take some time to get to so you may have until Thursday or Friday...

Let's be creative out there!

Welcome to the May Daily Count Challenge!

Behind the cut you will find a list of everyone participating in the Daily Count Challenge and their day. I'm 99% certain I got everyone who signed up and put them on the correct days, but if I missed up, or a day doesn't work out, comment to this entry and let me know.

Every Tuesday night I will put up a reminder post for the next week. If someone forgets to post that they've done their writing for the day, the next person will know it's their turn and can post after they've done their writing.

For example, it's 05 May and sharpiesgal hasn't made a post saying that they've done their daily writing, on 06 May, cmk418 can post when they've done their writing to keep things moving on.

I think I've covered everything, but if not, please let me know.
