Quote of the Week


"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

-  Sylvia Plath

Prompt of the Week

Write about an awkward social encounter - could be a botched introduction, an over-the-top request, a kiss gone wrong.  What happened? How did it make everyone involved feel -- show their reactions.
