Monday, Monday

OMG, it's been a day and a half. Nothing serious, just time-consuming. Work was a day of repetition, as I kept hitting all the wrong keys and buttons; then I had grocery shopping to do after work; then a Photoshop project for work, which unfortunately had to be done at home; and finally I had to decide rapidly on September's challenge for the comm, as Bingo is not able to be organised in time (due to my slackness, as I forgot I needed to get onto things a bit quicker), so here I am rapidly doing this before bedtime so it'll be up for Monday morning for most of you!

I am not on the ball with either last week's challenges or the Sept Big Buddy, but suffice to say if you missed anything, check out the regular challenge tags for the last bunch of challenges, and since it's only Day One of Sept, assume you need about 3% of your monthly total by now!

Last month's challenge was August Rush, and we had some great entries! Congrats to all who participated - you are all wonderful! I'll be making banners for those who played, so expect them soon, if I can get myself organised!

This month, I have decided we're going for a whole month of COMMENT FIC, since I haven't put up any prompts under that challenge since 2017! Watch out for the first prompt post with some basic rules shortly.

I won't bother with a flash fic prompt as the comment fic prompt coming up should cover that. And, with that, I'll get onto it now, so all that remains is for me to ask how you're planning to be awesome this week! Tell me in the comments!

Oh, and you have an extra day or two to get your counts updated, as I won't be able to add everything up until tomorrow or Wednesday. ;-)

September Challenge: Comment Fic, Day 1

Comment fic is all about writing a short fic that will fit in an LJ comment field, so that's about 700-800 words, max. You can write less, but aim for over 200 words if you can. You can do one every day, or for however many days you want.

Link your creations to the daily post where you found the prompt - either by posting the entire fic in a comment, or just by a link (also in a comment) back to wherever you've posted it.

Thems the rules! Everything else is up to you! I will give you a prompt every day, and you can do with it as you will, so long as it fits into a comment. Any genre, any characters, any fandom or none!

Today's prompt: I wish

There will be another prompt tomorrow!
