Passing the torch to simplyn2deep

No sleep last night - becoming a worrying trend! So I decided I might as well do something useful with my time. One of my WiPs has slipped away from me - hopefully I will get the urge to write a chapter of that tomorrow - but today I wrote 3000 words on another WiP and a 500 word drabble as well as made two banners.

So I shall bid you goodnight - or good morning since it's 1141am here!

Wishing you luck!

Weekend Challenge: Toddler Book Titles Edition

Hi everyone!

My little girl turns 2 today, so in honor of her big day, I have picked out 30 titles of her favorite books for you to choose from. So give me a number or three, and I will give you the titles of the books.

Use any part of the title as inspiration, or google the summary and use that if you prefer!

If you write 200 words or make a graphic and post it back here by Thursday night, I will write you a drabble or make you an icon in return or add words to a WIP in your honor.

Good luck!!


Titles will come later tonight as we are about to celebrate with dinner and cake and presents!
