We have made it simple for you to respond to the writing prompt and to send us prose/poetry for consideration to post on the blog. All you have to do is click Submit on the right hand side of the screen. Let’s get on with the new writing prompt!
Spend five to ten minutes writing from the prompt. When you are finished, head over to our Submit page and send it to us. On Friday we will feature the results that have been submitted to us on this blog. Be sure you keep it appropriate and follow the Guidelines.
Writing Prompt: What is the oddest present you’ve received? How old were you? Who gave it to you? What was your reaction?
