That was a fantastic response to week 1! Not only the writing pieces, but the comments and interaction. It’s great to see how everyone interpreted their work, and there are some fantastic things in the comments of last week, you should look if you haven’t already.
Week 2 looks like some fun. Keep in mind that there is no minimum word count. No max, either, although I’m not sure how long you can go in a WordPress comment if that’s how you are publishing your responses! Also, this doesn’t have to be fiction. Last week we got poetry. Non-fiction is fine. Whatever floats your goat.
And if you didn’t remember to submit a prompt challenge to firstname.lastname@example.org in time to be included, there are spare prompts at the bottom of this post. Please, pick one and join in on the fun!

- The reactions of passers-by to a woman walking a three foot tall elephant on a leash.
- A newscast during which the existence of an extraterrestrial spacecraft heading towards the Earth is announced.
- A conversation between two people planning a murder–do not state specifically that they intend to kill someone.
- Someone finds a box on their front porch containing a severed human head–but in that time and place, it’s perfectly normal.
There have been some volunteers of help – thank you, so much. It is deeply appreciated because I’d like to make this a year-long journey. Who knows what lies along the way? That’s a prompt all unto itself, and just like a prompt, everyone’s year will look different.
