like 2, but still.) I have posted about backing up all the things all the time I would have a recent backup, but no.

I am hopping on the ROW80 bandwagon again. It is a great place to find support and help as well as people to cheer when you have successes. I am only starting with 3 goals and planning to stay with them for the rest of this round. My goals are:
- To make the check-ins on Sundays and Wednesdays
- To visit 5 fellow ROW80 bloggers each check-in
- To write 500 words every day
What do you do when you have a character or several, but no story to put them in? Where are the best places you have found prompts to help jump start a story idea? Please leave me a comment to say hello. Don't forget to let me know where you are visiting from so I can follow you back and see what you're up to.
