Look Out, Here Comes Monday!

Holy moly, is it June already?  Yikes.  Hopefully it’s warming up where you are or, if it’s winter in your part of the world, here’s to hoping it isn’t too cold for you.  Summer found us weeks ago and is hitting the southwest hard.  Predicted highs of 109ºF by Wednesday.  But I much prefer that to hurricanes and other crazy weather phenomena.  Monsoons are enough for this girl.

May was an epic fail for me as far as the writing went, but I did amazingly well on the reading portion of my life.  Hahaha.  So, I am making a plan and, with bingo card in hand, will WRITE ALL THE WORDS.  Who’s with me?  Plus, I need to clean up all the digital library loans I’ve got going right now… six is a bit much (plus the for still on hold.  HELP ME.)  On the bright side, my Goodreads Reading Challenge counter is looking mighty good.

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: wildflowers.  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 10%!  How are you doing?  Are you on track or woefully behind like I am?

simplyn2deep – 600
agdhani – 5,000
cmk418 – 400
asphaltcowgrrl – 1,500
sharpiesgal – 100
craterdweller – 1,500
candream – 100
fairyniamh – 300
flipflop_diva – 500
weakmoments – 14,000 (I’m confused by what you’re goal for the month is, so correct me if I’m off, please!)

Wow – lots of us this month!  I haven’t written anything but this post this month but WE CAN DO THIS!

If you still want to, you can sign up for June here!  Additional note: You can sign up for the Daily Count Challenge here as well.

4. June’s Challenge is in full swing and this month it’s BINGO!  This is my favorite challenge we do here and our wonderful Dreamy even made a handful of fandom themed cards as well.  You can find them all here.  WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS LAME POST?  GO CLAIM A CARD!

Let’s kick this week into action and find all the words and graphics that we can!  Shout out and let me know how last week went and what’s in store for you in the coming week!

Thank goodness for Saturday. I'm on track (barely). I've got about 6 more scenes to draft for WIPBigBang then it'll be on to some of those wonderful Dean Winchester cards Dreamy made.

Awesome! You can do this!

Hahaha... I misread that as saying 'dreamy Dean Winchester cards' but um, maybe I have an issue? Nah. Good luck! I can't wait to get started on my card, too.

Hah. :D

SCORE! I usually am on Saturday mornings. Sundays are harder to work. But I can be there one day!

I am with your plan to write all the words. Right now, I've just squeaked by the projected goal with 402, but I'm fired up over Bingo, which is a good thing to be.

This week is going to be a busy one- Pride prep-events, game nights, sitting down and watching the little bit of hockey that's left, and vacation planning- look to eat up a good portion of my time, but I'm still planning to write a fic a day (even if it's only a drabble).

Have a great day!

We've got this! Hey, that's 2 words ahead and yes, they do count!

Ugh, I'm stressing the hockey and yet not, if that makes any sense. Either way, I'm excited. Good luck with everything - and even a drabble a day adds up in the end.

Thanks and right back atcha!

I posted an update on one of my wips and netted myself 842 words, which is amazeballs because I haven't written anything since December. Here's hoping the muse is here to stay for a little while.

Awesome! I am so happy for you! Tie her up and stuff her in the closet if you have to!

Shout out to craterdweller who split the cards with me, and should get big kudos for June bingo turning out so pretty! I'm going to grab a set of prompts or two myself this week, and I WILLLL finish the WIP that has eaten my brain. I will. Words or bust for me this week.

OMG, you're right - I forgot to mention her. SORRY! This is my brain on Sunday mornings right here. But the cards are amazing, you guys did a great job on them!

YES! You can do this!

Powering through some editing...considering if I should upload another book during freebie month or wait a bit...
Guess I'll decide that when this book's edits are complete.

Last week was kinda crazy at work, but I'm hoping this week will be better. It's getting too hot for crazy.

As for Bingo, soon as I get this particular editing pass complete, I'm gonna tackle some of them...we'll see how that goes to.

And thanks to the weekend, I'm ahead. Lets hope it stays that way.

Good luck with the edits! For me, that's always the hardest part.

Hope that work calms down for you soon. My boss was gone for a good 10 days and then we had the holiday so last week was nuts here, too.

Have fun with the bingo when you're able to get to it. And here's to staying ahead of the game!
