    I loved how open this prompt was, should be some good stories today!

    Gah you know I just realised I misread the prompt! Took me reading Benjamin’s to figure it out… whoops!

    prompts are just that Stacey – as open or as prescriptive as you want them to be… the main thing about FF is that you get the blood on the page… just write…

    I’d been wondering for a while how to tell a particular story, and this prompt gave me the way in!

    Hi. Here’s mine.

    Great prompt.

    It took me so long to work out how to get this into a story. Even when I’d decided on the story it took me until 3/4 of the way through to work it out.

    Thanks for challenging us this week Annie!

    All my love scenes end up with someone dying or being eaten. Maybe I should see someone about that.

    This was a real challenge, Annie. It’s short, but complete.

    I didn’t mean for this story to end up this way…and I couldn’t help it… CYOA flavours everything for me at the moment..

    here is a taster into the world of Time Wardens and a backstory for the main characters… can be read alone – but for those involved in the project, will give them a richer experience.

    its first draft… but I enjoyed the fun it brought…

    I wasn’t going to participate this week due to my CYOA obligation, but decided to throw one out anyway.
    Special shout-out too. 🙂
