Hello all...

I hope the week has been good to you.

This week's quote comes from Reba McIntyre.

Do with it what you will.

Rare Pairs Prompt #8

We are getting well into the challenge now. Are you where you hoped to be by now? Need any more encouragement or help? Talk about it here!

Here's the next 'long' prompt:

Two strangers share a cab/uber on a stormy night

Need a short prompt or two? Give me some numbers between 1 and 150 and I'll give you some (hopefully) inspirational words. Note: some of these may be suggestive, but you don't have to use them that way, OR you may ask me for another word to replace the one/s you don't like, and I'll find you something that's more general.

The next long prompt will be in two days time, but in the meantime if you need anything else, comment here and I'll reply as soon as I can!

Whether its the weather, politics, work, or boredom, I think its time for an exotic getaway to help us all unwind, relax, and recenter our creative selves.

Give me a number between 1 and 30 (or more than one if you want an extended vacation!) and I'll give you an exotic destination to get your mind off of the mundane, off of the stress.

Then, you let your muses bring back at least 250 words worth of souvenirs and I can offer you icons or words to my WIP as your reward.

So...who's ready to get away from it all

Welcome to the February Daily Count Challenge!

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 Friday 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 February and Dreamy hasn't made a post saying that they've done their daily writing, on 06 February, flipflop_diva 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.
