Here we are, nearly halfway through the third year of this weird and wonderful journey. So, a question for those merry few who visit here: Shall we carry on? And if so, do we continue here, or move it somewhere smaller and more private like a discord server or emails? In the meantime, the prompt challenge for the week…

And for those who have been along for the ride from the beginning, catching the carousel as it’s already turning, here are your spare prompts.
|Spare||the wild whistle of the fast train faded slowly|
|Spare||It was a space potato.|
|Spare||“Well – sure, Officer, I turned my friend into a talking deer head. But I promise, it was the only way to save him.”|
|Spare||the goat-footed balloon man whistles far and wee|
|Spare||Here they come, walking down the street… Hey, hey, we’re the zombies…|
No matter what’s decided, it’s been a worthy endeavour. The brain needs exercise as much as the body does, and the weekly prompts have kept some writing when they might not otherwise, through an external prod and accountability source. Perhaps that alone is worth carrying on with our small band of writers. And perhaps it is time to shutter this place for a season, and give the writers their heads to create something wholly their own.
