Last minute of March or first minute of April word wars

Hi! Even with all of this down-time we're seemingly having right now, I still have a few prompts to tackle to reach my March word count and sometimes the only way to do that is to have my butt in the chair and ready to write. So if you care to join me, I will be running Word Wars from 8-10pm CDT.

Here's the schedule:
Round 1: 8-8:25pm CDT
Round 2: 8:30-8:55pm CDT
Round 3: 9:05-9:30pm CDT
Round 4: 9:35-10pm CDT

Please feel free to pop in for a round or two and let us know what you're doing. Whether it's writing, editing, setting up a project for Camp NaNoWriMo, or some other creative endeavor, everyone is welcome.

See you back at this post around 8.
