Blue. Man. Group. Saw them Saturday night. So fun. If you ever get the chance to see them, I highly recommend it.

In other news, happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans! And to my British friends, no hard feelings?

I plan to sleep in Wednesday, get some writing done, watch a Will Smith movie about an alien invasion, and go see fireworks somewhere. How ’bout y’all?

You could start your personal celebration by reading some of the brilliant work linked below:

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:

Praying for sleep
Someone on the other line
Changes when you look at it
What year is it?
