Monday is here again (or for most of you it is, anyway; it's just turned into Tuesday here!). I hope you all had a great weekend, and for most of you that spring is well and truly in the air. In these parts, autumn has arrived; colours are changing in many places (even though in this mild city we don't exactly get extreme temperatures) and the air is cooling down. I had a good, if busy weekend - my daughter got back from her amazing trip to Borneo, and there was much to do and talk about!
Words have not been going so well this month for me, so I need to buckle down in May, and the perfect way to kick into that is that our wonderful kaige68 is going to run a Music Challenge for the month! She'll be posting about that soon, so keep your eyes peeled. April's Crossover Challenge is almost at the end too, so watch out for a final post about that from your hostess, flipflop_diva, to report in on how you did!
On the upside, I did manage to finish the 1000 piece jigsaw that's been on my coffee table for a couple of months (thank you for the inspiration, K!), and have made excellent progress on the back of the baby jacket I am knitting for a workmate's baby (due in October; hopefully I can stop procrastinating on that and get it done well in time!).
So this week, I pledge to get the fic I finished some weeks back edited and off to beta, and then to get buckled down and into work on the next fic that needs finishing.
But enough about me! How are you guys going to make your week fabulous?
Here are the reminders and other things you need to help kick you off for the week:
1 – FLASH CHALLENGE – Your Monday prompt is - Rise - Give me 100 words or a graphic for the sake of saying you’ve done it!
2 –I'm sorry I won't be able to gather the links for last week's challenges, but please, if you need prompts or don't want to miss anything, scroll back through last week's entries, or check out the appropriate tags!

Let's be creative out there!
