Word Wars Tonight, Anyone?

My writing motivation has been in hiding recently (maybe it's run off with the Muse), so I figured the best way to give myself a kick start would be some word wars. Whether you're in the same boat or your Muse has been singing to you, feel free to join me back in this space tonight from 7-9pm CST for four rounds of writing, brainstorming, editing, etc.

Here's the schedule:
Round 1: 7-7:25pm
Round 2: 7:30-7:55pm
Round 3: 8:05-8:30pm
Round 4: 8:35-9pm

Looking forward to seeing you tonight!

Sorry for not posting last weekend. :o(

I was pretty productive today. :o) I was able to finish all my homeworks on HEX (for full pts) and I was able to create my first art this year (01 x picspam). I also posted here again about it. :o) Which makes 3 goals done today. :o)

I'm passing the torch to flipflop_diva. Good luck and have fun. <3

(And, everybody: Please take care of you all and stay safe! <333)
