It’s week fifteen, a nice round number that isn’t, and we’re progressing our merry, wandering way through the year. What will your creative inspiration be this week? You never know what you’ll get with the More Odds Than Ends crew week to week. Will it be a strange gift of a cucumber bouquet? How about a spaceship filled with glowing, sentient plasma?

Whatever your inspiration, we’d love to see it. And if you wish to provide inspiration and receive some in return, just send a prompt to firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s that easy!
