I've never been to Texas. Ironically enough, the part about "grandpa" is actually true - my grandfather once said that to me, though he's still alive and kicking.

The connection (though it's thin,...

Awesome! Great story and very well written. I especially liked that the man didn't try to talk her off the ledge - he just talked to her.

Hmmm that's interesting. I hadn't thought of that.

I've done data entry before and can 100% confirm that's what happens if you do it too long. Haha, good stuff! I like your take on the prompt - Tad dies and no one cares.

I'm new so not sure how the prompts were handled in the past. Does a Mod just suggest a prompt and we all go buck wild?

Writing Prompt #51 - "Sunrise/Sunset: It goes round and round" - 10/1/17 to 10/15/17

Writers, poets, journeymen!

This section of the forum seems to be dead, but as we all know, dead things can be fun to play with.

Who wants to try a prompt together? Perhaps a moderator can jump...

That's the best way I've ever heard it described - a sanity check. And I suppose it's relevant to any kind of art form. You want to know if it's good beyond your own interpretation.

Just a little blurb I wrote this morning.

You owe it to yourself - and to us readers, dammit - to figure it out. I really enjoy your writing and the scenes that you set, but if you can't already tell, I want more.
