Here's to another great week!

Happy Monday!  We’re closing in on the end of the month already, ready to usher summer in.  Or, if you’re like me, you welcomed it two weeks ago. Hah!


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: volleyball.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy is at 77%.  How are you doing?  I am – well, let’s not go there.  It’s too distressing.  Hahaha.    The May post is here, and you’re welcome to jump in at any time.  The more the merrier, right?

5. May’s long challenge is Bingo!  The rules post is here as well as the cards, too.  Go forth, claim a card, and have fun with it all!  Since there are only a few days left, if you haven’t started yet, get on it!

Let’s get at it and have another amazing week.  Chime in below to let us know how you’re doing, if you need any help, and what  you have on deck for this week.

Rainy Days and Mondays

It's that time of the week again.  That time where I give you a prompt to rip your heart out.  Or, rather, something to rip out the heart of one or more of your characters.  I have two for you today:

1. “They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, but my heart just became numb.”

2. “Tell me you don’t want to leave. Say I’m enough to make you stay. I know it’s not true, but please just say it.”

Go foth and torture those characters!  Bring on all the feels!  And have some fun while you're doing it.  Wait... that sounds a bit psychopathic... oops.

Single Line Bingo!
