Okay, so this is rather impromptu, but when something seems perfect, I tend to jump on it. And, so, when Ritu from But I Smile Anyway decided to run a last-minute blog hop she’s calling #Loveuary, it felt like a perfect time to explore the next three chapters of my Star Trek: Enterprise TnT fan fiction story, Love and Loss – a hundred words at a time.
I’m using word prompts for each day, randomly gathered. If you’d like to add to the pool, list your choices in the comments – bonus points if they don’t sound especially like they’d fit a science fiction story. I love a challenge!
I’ll highlight the prompt words, and identify today’s contributors at the end of the post.
And, standard disclaimers apply: I don't own them, or profit from them - I just love them, which makes them perfect to play with this month! =D

Today’s words come from:
