It's time for a new quarterly prompt here at One_Prompt. I thought that just for summer, we'd shake things up a little bit. Was there an earlier prompt that you were working on that just never quite came together for you? Are you wishing that you had come up with something from a past prompt and sad that you missed your chance? Did you write one story for a prompt, have a great idea for a second story and run out of time?
Well, be sad no more! For summer, we're going to rewind and play a round of prompt catch up. We've done eight prompts so far with varying levels of participation. For fun, I thought we'd put all eight previous prompts into play and let you have at them. The really ambitious among you can write a story for each prompt. Or the really, really clever can come up with one story that somehow incorporates each of the prompts. Or, you know, you can just choose the prompt that speaks to you and write to that one. :)
In original order of appearance, here are the prompts:
*Racing the Clock
*Well? Can you fix it?
*Sometimes I think to myself "This is it...This is going to be the day we have a nice, sane, boring
*That's the last of the coffee
*I think we made a big mistake
_____A few reminders:
* An overview of the rules can be found at the front page
* Guidelines for posting your story are here
* Questions? As always, feel free to ask them here
* Even if you post your story in its entirety in the comments to this post, you are encouraged to post it to your personal journal too—just be sure to keep it private until the day of reveal.
*Do you have prompts to suggest? Post them here
