I can’t say I’ll mind when 2020 is over, but it hasn’t been all bad. Y’all are pretty awesome. This is a year that deserved some light coming into the world, and whether you’re an active participant, a sometimes reader, or sheerly a contemplator, it’s been filled with creativity and fun.
So without further ado, let’s get onto those prompts! Want to trade? Email in to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you into the rotation.

|Cedar Sanderson||A letter shows up. It’s addressed to you, and it starts out like the person knows you and your situation. But you don’t recognize the name, and some of the news in the letter is very strange indeed.||nother Mike|
|Becky Jones||The dog walked in the door like he owned the place. Crouched on his back, the cat took everything in before jumping off and heading for the sofa. You laugh at the confidence on display…but these are not your pets.||Leigh Kimmel|

And now for the spares – alternatives, that is, not sparse. We know you can put some meat on these prompt bones. Same email address, just put “spare” in the subject line.

|Spare||2020 was the year of the rat, and 2021 is the year of the ox… What happens when the ox takes over for the rat?|
