Daily count challenge to Dreamy

Ugh. I completely whiffed on my writing yesterday. Remembered it early in the week, then just completely forgot about it - I could blame this on old age, but I refuse to believe that I'm old, so that won't work. Outside of my daily journaling, no words for me yesterday.

I'm late tagging Dreamy for today, but I hope you are able to get the creative juices going for the time you have left. Good luck & happy writing!
