Re: HELLO IN THERE!

Well Mlou and Timber... I gave it a shot but no one really wants to come back to this site any more. I guess everyone is spending time on facebook, their own blogs, or other writing sites. It's okay... I'm just doing my own thing and writing for myself, primarily. It's a let down for me that Wordtri...

Re: Getting The Ball Rolling

Anyone around? We seem to have gone quiet again and really, until we can all come together and decide to utilize this site on a frequent basis, I'm not really thinking I'm going to spend a lot of time posting prompts and writing discussions. We'll keep the site up and running until it can't run and ...

FFF - Neighborhood Yard Sale

The neighborhood yard sale... Imagine a neighborhood yard sale with at least 4 families participating. Now give them all completely different views or backgrounds. Maybe one family is rich while the other is very poor... how does the yard sale affect their new view of each other? Maybe it's a look i...

Re: Suggestion Box - put your suggestions here!

I'm assuming that as the days grow shorter and bring people inside longer hours, we will see more activity.

Re: June 2016 - 3 Flash to 1 Short Challenge - Full Prompt

Did anyone take on the JUNE challenge? Seems we fizzled out a bit this month but that's not too surprising since summer seems to draw people outside and away from the pen & paper or the keyboard.

We will need to try and set a challenge for another month but keep writing and posting here.

Hey JB... this last part is very intense and had me hooked! I think you're doing very well. I'm all in favor of a happy ending to this one... or at least an ending that has some people saved. You could perhaps leave a little mystery regarding one or two of them.

I like it so far!!
