Watching World Series game 5. This has got to be a conspiracy of the blood pressure drug companies. Best get your mind off it by reading some of this week’s work. I’m off to watch the bottom of the fifth!

The Rules

There are none. Read the prompts, get inspired, write something. No word count minimum or maximum. You don’t have to include the exact prompt in your piece, and you can interpret the prompt(s) any way you like.


No really; I need rules!

Okay; write 200-500 words on the prompt of your choice. You may either use the prompt as the title of your piece or work it into the body of your piece. You must complete it before 6 pm CST on the Monday following this post.

The Prompts:

My homework ate the dog
What year is it?
Temporary insanity
Comfortable cage
