Did you all have a lovely weekend? Did you get a lot of things done? Did you get to sleep late at all? Even just 5 minutes?

Your flash challenge is "That wasn't on the list." Do with it what you will.

I am at work at the moment, so natrually there are other things I'm supposed to be doing, but I have a 4 day work week this week, and 4 days off this coming weekend, and then 4 days next week. I'm in a bit of a good mood. I have to clean to have the plumber over (hopefully, fingers crossed) to work on my heat on Friday, but I'm still looking forward to a long weekend with the dog. What are your big plans for the week?

How about making some more words? Some more graphics? Here are some prompts you may have overlooked:

Daily count challenge to Bizarra

Heard about a writing trick and decided to give it a go. You change the font of your document to Comic Sans MS and allegedly it causes words to flow from you like a fountain.

I thought it sounded like complete and utter BS, but as I've been struggling to get more than a drabble or two out, I decided to give it a go.

Today, I have written just over 7,000 words and made three banners: finished my fic for the spook_me 2020 challenge which is due at the end of October, caught up with all of my drabbles and completed the fic that was giving me so much trouble last week! I sh*t you not, this thing seems to work! Whether it was just a mind trick or what, I don't know, but I'm going to keep doing it!

Passing the torch to bizarra and wishing you a fountain of words!
