Doing good. Finished a story yesterday and started a new one today thanks to a plot bunny provided by one of my commenters over on AO3. Current word count for May is just over 40k so am extremely pleased with that! Have upped my goal for graphics to 150 for the year as already met my target. Am trying to keep my feet firmly on the ground as I know just how easy it is for the muse to desert me, but I am feeling good - about writing/graphics at least!

Hope everyone else is doing well xx

That's wonderful! I hope the muse doesn't abandon you anytime soon, but still, that's amazing.

We're good here. My baby should have graduated on Friday, but that didn't happen, so we're having dinner with my in-laws tonight to celebrate. Other than that, we're surviving. :)

finished round one of edits...did a lot or RP and prompt writing yesterday...not sure which project I'll tackle today.
But I'm ahead of the count so I'm not too worried.

Awesome, you're doing great!

Celebrating my first official paid holiday with my new job. Woot! I hope to be seeing my siblings and their families later today, weather permitting- we're meeting outside and they're predicting storms in the area. Fingers crossed, the rain will hold off until late tonight.

I'm well on top of my writing goal, a bit behind on my editing goal, but I've gotten more than 2 hours done this month, which is generally my track record when I say I'm going to edit something, so I'm counting it as a win. Still plenty of time left to move forward on it.

I saw today that hockey players are going to start some limited skating, and although I'd be okay with them cancelling the season and playoff entirely, this development makes me very happy. Hoping they all stay safe and healthy- we might have hockey on my birthday (it's in August) for the first time ever.

Hope you are doing well.

Congrats on the job and the paid holiday! Ugh, hoping that the rain holds off for you. We're going to have dinner with my in-laws tonight to celebrate my little one's non-graduation graduation. LOL

Awesome! And editing sucks, so I won't say a word. Haha.

I agree with you on all of that. No hockey, no problem. But if you're going to give me some? I'm there. That'd be really cool if you got some for your birthday! Growing up, I watched a lot of baseball and the All Star Game always fell right around my birthday (early July), so it was a treat for me.

We're hanging in there, hope you're doing well, too.

Thank you! You are very very wonderful!

Also - Donut!!!! Just the thought is happy!

I know, right? Shocker!

Anytime. :)

Hahaha - something spurred that prompt but I can't remember what it was now.

I'm not sure it was his fault this time, although it usually is! I'm going to blame it on one of my kids. :D (Of which Zayne is one, of course.)
