Monday, Monday!

Happy Monday everyone!  How’s September been treating you so far?  Same ol’ same ol’ here but that’s okay, too.  Better the devil you know, right?

Not sure if there are any tennis fans in our midst but the upset in the Women’s final on Saturday was something to see.  Well, if you could see anything around my kitten who thinks she’s helping the players.  *sigh*  Canada, you have yourselves a winner, with or without Violet’s aid.

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: upset.  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 30%!  How are you doing so far this month?  The monthly challenge has helped me stay on track, that’s for sure.

sharpiesgal –   3,000

Just a tiny bit ahead of the game...and gonna have 2 or 3 days where I doubt I'll make many words...but the notebook is coming with me so I can still do prep time (and probably brainstorming while driving, so that totally counts, right?)

But I'm catching up on all the shows I put off during the past several months of editing push, so the recharging the brain must count for something ;)

Ahead is ahead! And yes, it ALL counts!

Definitely. We all need a bit of downtime sometimes!

I think I'm on target. I haven't been keeping track the past few days.

I love the fact that Violet enjoys tennis. I can just see her trying to bat the tennis ball back and forth...lol

Awesome, keep it up! :)

I have a video I took of her on Friday night during Rafa's match. I'll have to post it on my journal for you because I swear she's going to knock the TV over one day.

I think she is sillier than Sunny.

She's definitely more at ease than Sunny so that probably has a lot to do with it. Poor Sunny was on the streets for her first 3 or 4 months of life.

Violet, on the other hand, was rescued at 2 days old and has lived in the lap of luxury ever since. So, maybe she's just eccentric? LOL

Well. The mandatory fun day prompt for the week spawned a fic that ate my brain over the course of about three days and ended up being just over 15,600 words long. I am actually over my word count. For the month.

Uh, thanks winterhawk? I appreciate you.

That's awesome! I'm so happy for you! :) Nothing better than when a simple prompt spawns that many words. Friday's comment fic prompt caused me to spew out a good 5k and more is coming.

WOOHOO WINTERHAWK!

That really was such a great fic. I did cry several times. Brilliant!

Aww, thank you! I loved writing it. That was one ferocious bunny. I've never written that many words in so short a time.

That was an awesome story. I can understand why it ate your brain.

Cats watching TV = cutest thing ever. :}

I saw a Tumblr post that said "Sorry, too busy to (____), I need to spend my free time mindlessly flicking between three social media apps." Which, honestly, is a rut I'm in when not running or knitting. So... goal for September is put down the apps.

I think (hope) I also might be able to clear the mental free space to focus on words- we'll see. I'm going to grab the comment fic prompts tonight and see what they lead to....

God, she's a nut, too.

Hahaha - same, although it's dumb farming games on my Kindle that keep me distracted. Good luck putting them aside and getting other things done!

Awesome! There are a lot of fun prompts out there, too. Good luck. :)

I don't even have a thousand yet, but I've got writing sprints scheduled for later today, so there's hope.
