  1. I came up with a great story for this! A very unexpected twist. I'm not sure if I'll will have the link ready tonight because I am in the middle of improving my blog. The short stories will have a new location and I want to make sure the link points to that new spot.
    I hope everyone else is having fun writing for this prompt. I can't wait to read the other stories.

    2. I'm not going to post it after all. It ended up turning into this amazing chapter 1 of a new book idea. So I'm going to keep it to myself and work on the book your prompt inspired.
