Welcome to the May Daily Count Challenge!

Behind the cut, you will find a list of everyone participating in the Daily Count Challenge and their day. I'm 99% certain I got everyone who signed up and put them on the correct days, but if I missed up, or a day doesn't work out, comment to this entry and let me know.

Every Friday night I will put up a reminder post for the next week. If someone forgets to post that they've done their writing for the day, the next person will know it's their turn and can post after they've done their writing.

For example, it's 05 May and Dreamy hasn't made a post saying that they've done their daily writing, on 06 May, cmk418 can post when they've done their writing to keep things moving on.

I think I've covered everything, but if not, please let me know.
