The first wave of prompts, provided graciously by the illustrious “Uptown” David Cole, has been answered and can be found by clicking that thing, or clicking here. I’ve got a decent-sized backlog of prompts (especially at the current rate I’ve been answering them), but if you’re interested in participating, you are encouraged to let me know.
I still haven’t figured out exactly what format this is going to take.
A couple of weeks ago, I asked a few of my friends (and one person I know pretty tangentially and entirely over the internet) to send me five writing prompts. I’m still not sure exactly what a ‘writing prompt’ is, but they are my friends, and they’re smart, and they did a good job filtering my selfish request through their personal sensibilities.
Then I was totally busy for a couple of weeks.
But now: I am going to try and answer the prompts to the best of my ability. I will answer them in the order they were asked, and I will try and put each answer over 250 words. Once all of the prompts have been answered, I will probably ask for more prompts from different friends and different people I know pretty tangentially and entirely over the internet.
I decided last night that an explanation of who the person is and my relationship to them will act as a sort of sixth prompt from that person. I will do that one first.So here goes.
