Daily count challenge to Sharpiesgal

I've been plugging along on my Fictober challenges. So, so far I'm staying pretty on top of it. I did get three days behind, but with today being a day off I was able to catch back up.

So for today, with three short stories all together came in at 1908 words. :)
