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

And I forgot again....

So I'm a day late. I wrote about 120 words, but it was all paperwork.

Passing to Dreamy, who I hope has a more productive writing day!!

Challenge goes to Agdhani!

Despite my best intentions, no words for me Sunday. Also, I spent half an hour looking for a WIP to try to make progress on, and then realized it's on the computer that hasn't been set up since my move a month ago. Sigh. I used to have a memory...I seem to recall it was very useful.

I can't feel too bad, though, because it was a gorgeous weekend. There was running, and time in the park, along with cooking food for the week ahead and baking bread. So... I'll crash for the night hoping for words in the near future- and pass the torch to agdhani !
