Weekend Challenge - Mob Week

For several years, every August, AMC would set some a week aside and run some of my favorite mob movies - The Godfather Saga, Goodfellas, Casino, and one of my all-time favorites, The Untouchables. So, along those lines, I've gathered up 32 quotes from 5 different mob movies (The Untouchables, Goodfellas, The Godfather, Part Two, Once Upon a Time in America, and Casino). Give me a number from 1 to 32 and I'll give you a quote.

If they inspire you to create a graphic or a drabble of at least 200 words, I can offer a drabble or add words to a WIP as a reward. The list of fandoms I write in is here.

Have fun and happy writing!

With respect to David Mamet, here endeth the challenge description.

Say What Friday

Bruce Lee

Reminder: Don't forget to stop by the August Rush poll and vote, so we can get started on this challenge.

July Count!

Without further ado, here are July's figures!

WE ARE NEARLY AT THREE MILL, EVERYONE!


Image word: 1,405 x 1,000. This is up by a phenomenal 674 images this month! Thanks in part to one member adding in their totals for the year to date (you know who you are!) - THANK YOU!

Written word: 1,587,975. This is up by a terrific 158,552! (again with a YTD figure being added - thanks again!)

1_million_words Total words to date 2019: 2,992,975


Just a mere 7,025 words to go before we hit that 3 mill!


This is incredible and I have high hopes for us getting 4 million - maybe even 5 million! - by the end of 2019.

The annual August Rush challenge starts next week, and the poll to choose the 5-6 final fandoms is here, so don't forget to VOTE! I need your vote within 24 hours as I am already running behind on where I should be on kicking it off. Could my helpers please check in (here or on the poll post) too, please, as I want to be sure you're all free to collect pics over the weekend.

August is going to be FANTASTIC!!!!

Let's be creative out there!!! ;-)
