    The lab was in darkness when Claudia returned; everyone had gone home at their usual time, but Claudia had some unfinished work that she simply must complete before the morning. It didn’t really matter how long this was going to take she just knew that she had to knuckle down and get on with it. From her part of the lab area she had to turn a full…[Read more]

    Hope you feel inspired to write more in the future.

          • That’s the biggest issue with a group plugin, there is no text editor box for customising. Under Thinkr there was an advanced editor option but since we changed back to Thoughts it disappeared.

  • landscape

    The water, as expected, had begun to recede and once again slowly but surely, the cobbled stoned path was revealed. No one truly knew where it led to, even with the tide fully out the path’s end could not be seen.

    Come on in. . .I don’t bite.

    • Ha! I think I am going to try the first challenge. I have just been busy. I have a letter I have to type that I should have did 3 weeks ago. So you see how I operate these days.
      The picture challenge……I can’t even think about at the moment. But it sure makes you think.

      • There’s no rush, no pressure, but ever there is time. If you have an idea then go for it. I’m trying to keep this new group active, or as active as I’m able. If I produce regular updates then it might encourage more people to give it a go. . .

        • Oh my gosh….you are on “C” already? I better get with it. I signed up for a few classes this semester WHICH I am enjoying. I just have to get use to my schedule so I know when I have down time to do this. It is something I want to do. One class I wanted to take was Creative Writing but I couldn’t find a time that worked. Next semester for sure.

          • Cripes Monica you sound really busy. There’s no rush, the previous challenges are going nowhere so they will always be ready when you are.

            • Ok! I am finally getting some routine down. As long as I keep the TV off this weekend I will accomplish some stuff. ….I think. 😀
