Squeaking into Monday on my usual Tuesday!

Here we go, and another week's gone by. I can't believe there's only one more week of February! Anyhoo, how are you doing with everything? There's one more week left of our WIP Push and Three Sentence Fic challenges, so get your thinking caps on and come up with something to contribute to them while you can! Next week we should have Pool Party kicking off - it may be a bit early to jump into a pool in the Northern Hemisphere, but pretend you're Downunder with me and it's still summer, and dive into a new fandom - more details when that challenge kicks off in due course!

The usual tags will provide you with a wealth of prompts for the last week - I don't have time today to link them all, but rest assured, you can find them if you try! ;-)

Big Buddy should be at around 82% - how are you doing with your goal, if this includes you?

Your flash challenge for this week is: I couldn't sleep last night. Write a hundred words or more for the pleasure of it, then pat yourself on the back! Link it here if you want. ;-)

What else? I think that's all the usual... I have written a whole 123 words this week - it's a miracle! Maybe I'll even be inspired to write some more before WIP Push ends! Other than that, I must catch up on my temperature blanket (all in the same colour so I'm a bit stalled while it's hot here!), and then perhaps I may even think about starting that bathroom renovation planning I've been meaning to get onto! ;-) How about you? What plans have you got this week to be awesome?
