Daily count challenge to bizarra

Getting my words in today was a bit of a challenge, but I managed. My day started with an extremely early-morning power outage (luckily it was back on before I actually needed to get moving), then 5 hours of work, then a fun new dental procedure that resulted in me having to wear an ice pack 15 minutes on, 20 minutes off since I got out of there. (I'm in an off-cycle right now).

I wrote 595 words to complete a fic toward the Bingo challenge and have decided to wrap it up for the night.

bizarra, I'm wishing you a wonderful day full of creativity. Go get those words!
