Daily count challenge to cmk418!

Yesterday was relatively good. I wrote 697 words of a fic in the afternoon. I was going to write more at night, but then the baby got sick, so all plans disappeared in an instant. But I'm happy I made some words since this month has been rough in terms of writing.

I now pass the torch to cmk418! I hope the words flow fast and beautifully!

Weekend Challenge: Spider-Man quotes :):)

So, my obsession with Spider-Man (don't forget the hyphen) continues and I've decided that this weekend's challenge will be quotes from my favorite versions of Spider-Man which include the 1981 cartoon Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends and the Tom Holland/MCU movies, Spider-Man:  Homecoming and Spider-Man:  Far From Home.

Choose a number between 1 and 30 and I will give you a Spider-Man quote, either from Spidey himself, one of his super friends or even a villain which will hopefully inspire you.  Please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

I am not creative in any way with artwork, so if you want an icon, I will have to ask for help, but I can give you a drabble or add to my WIP.  And if you have any questions, please ask :):)
