Daily count challenge to Flipflop-Diva

Woke up at 5 am and decided I might as well get some writing done. Pretty good day, all in all - managed to write 500 words on one story, then approximately 5,000 words writing a chapter each for my other WiPs. Made three banners and think I might see if I can grab a nap!

I'm not actually doing Nano - as in, working on one story - but I would really like to hit 50,000 words this month and it looks like it might be within my grasp.

Passing the challenge to flipflop_diva and sending creativity vibes your way!
