Here Comes Monday!

Welcome to February everyone!  Hopefully you’re starting to see signs of spring out there.  Unless you’re H and you’re on the other side of the world that is.  Starting to warm up here already, but that’s life in the desert I suppose!

How are you doing?  Are you on track or do you need a little push?  If you’re looking for some help, motivation, or a cheerleader, let us know.  We’re here to help cheer, motivate, or threaten, whichever works best for you.


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

2. Last week’s challenges:

5. Our first challenge of the year is Rare Pairs!  You can find Haldoor’s initial post here.  She’s been posting prompts regularly, too, so please check the tag here for inspiration.

I think that’s all for now.  Chime in below and let us know how you’re doing and what your plans are for this week.  I’ve got a busy week ahead of me.  Need to find Valentine’s for my girls and prepare for my kid turning twenty in ten days.  TWENTY GUYS.  *sobs*  Hopefully you have a much less emotional February.  Hah!

Rare Pairs Prompt #13

I'm looking forward to hearing how you're all doing, and to handing out any short prompts today!

Here's the next 'long' prompt:

Rivals pretending to be friends

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!
