Monday Again Already?

Holy moly how is it nearly October?   I will never understand how things move so fast while often seeming so slow.
September had its moments, but for the most part, it was a good month for me.  Hopefully it was a good one for you, too.  If not, here comes October.  My second favorite month of the year, containing my absolute favorite holiday – Halloween.  So, there are good things on the horizon.

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: flashback.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

4. The Daily Count challenge reminder is here.  Might be some time to sign up still, but don’t quote me on that.    

5. October’s challenge is BINGO!  I’m sure the posts will be going up soon, but for now, keep your eyes peeled, the should be popping up soon.  Halloween and bingo in one month, how did I get so lucky?

Let’s hear it for another awesome week to come!  We’ve got this and, if we don’t, know that there is always someone around to act as cheerleader!     

Reminder!

Hi there!!!!

Remember that the month ends today! Squeak in the last few words and update your numbers!!!

Numbers Challenge

SO - I spaced on doing the number and letter postings for the month of September, so you will get them once a day until I'm caught up! Thank you for your patience!


The rules are:


1. Each post is either a hundred words or more/ or you can make a graphic/art

2. However the number influences you, go with the flow! I don’t care how you use or abuse the number! (I’ll give some suggestions/ideas/other languages to help you along if you get stuck!)

3. Post anywhere – tumblr, amazon.com, your journal, AO3, the dreaded ff.net, your bedroom wall, etc.

4. There is NO time limit.





And the number shall be ...176!

Go forth and create!

It's another Comment Fic prompt for your pleasure!

Today's prompt: Knick knacks

See where that leads you! Let's create words! ;-)
Behind the cut you will find a list of everyone participating in the Daily Count Challenge and their day. I'm 99% certain I got everyone who signed up and put them on the correct days, but if I missed up, or a day doesn't work out, comment to this entry and let me know.

Every Monday night I will put up a reminder post for the next week. If someone forgets to post that they've done their writing for the day, the next person will know it's their turn and can post after they've done their writing.

For example, it's 05 October and agdhani hasn't made a post saying that they've done their daily writing, on 06 October, candream can post when they've done their writing to keep things moving on.

I think I've covered everything, but if not, please let me know.
