Welcome to a new week of the wild and wonderful worlds that exist within our minds!
Here’s how it works, if you’re new ’round these parts:
You send in a prompt to firstname.lastname@example.org. That prompt is put into a spreadsheet, and then on prompt day (which is Wednesday, because Jan 1 2020 fell on that day of the week) the prompted column is randomized to assign the prompts to someone other than yourself (and that did happen, once. We check, now). You come by the blog and check to see what you drew from the magic spreadsheet, and then you go strike sparks from your imagination with it until something comes out. Most of us are writers, but we get prompt responses of fiction, essays, snips of something, poetry, and even art. Creativity knows no form or boundaries.
If you want something with less commitment, check out the spare prompts at the bottom of the post. And feel free to submit spare prompts!

And here are the spare prompts, for those who aren’t ready to commit to the full prompt challenge experience. Take one, take two, heck, take ’em all and weave them into something weirdly complex!
