DAILY WORD PROMPT, Life, Writing

Happy Sunday Afternoon… 🖌

Oh the irony.... today marks this achievement, if it can be described as one:- 100 posts, with varying levels of interest to you - and, believe it or not, containing over 23,000 words in 2018 posts alone which could have (should have?) gone on the manuscript!
