Saturday Creativity & Social Time

Hi all!

It's Saturday, so I've set up some time for all of us to gather and write or do some other kind of creative projects- art, knit, cook, etc. There will be 30-minute sessions with 15 minute breaks to check in with our word counts (or new of what we're currently working on) and to have some informal checking-in/chatting time with each other. Here's the schedule:

Round 1: 11-11:30am CDT
Round 2: 11:45am-12:15pm CDT
Round 3: 12:30-1pm CDT
Midpoint Break: 1-1:30pm CDT
Round 4: 1:30-2pm CDT
Round 5: 2:15-2:45pm CDT
Round 6: 3-3:30 CDT

Please feel free to drop in and out of this as you are able. I look forward to being able to spend some time with you.

Daily count challenge to agdhani

I had the best writing day I've had in some time and wrote a couple of different things totaling 2485 words. I learned today that my city is implementing a "stay at home" policy starting on Monday so that may mean a bit more writing time in the near future. (I should still have to actually go to the office though, so it may not increase that much.)

Passing the baton to agdhani. Go, get those words!
