Daily count challenge to Flipflop-Diva

I've not had a great writing week. I was struck down by a vicious migraine that put me out of action for a few days, and I'm only just starting to feel human again.

Today, I managed a chapter on my WiP, and two of the prompts for the A-Z challenge, so just over 4000 words and a couple of banners. Hopefully, I'll be more successful this week, although as it's my birthday on Tuesday I'm not expecting to be particularly productive!

Passing the torch to flipflop_diva to start the week with a bang!
