Daily challenge to cmk418!

Despite the universe rudely giving me a horrible cold, I actually got a lot done yesterday. I wrote about 500 words on one fic, and then I wrote my final speech for the writing competition I'm in (the one based on Survivor) and that was about 1,300 words. So not too shabby!

cmk418 is up today! Good luck, and may the muses be working with you and not against you!
