I really hope that people are finding some value with these prompts. I'd love to see more stories. I'm considering a contest of sorts. Any other suggestions to make these prompts better, or encourage more participation, I'd love to hear them in the comments.
Samantha at The Marble Jar can always be counted on for a great short story. She's contributed a story based on last week's prompt. Head over and show her some love! Peanut Butter Flowers
