The theme for this prompt call is: Squash & Gourds!
The idea: you prompt, as many prompts as you want, as long as they are related to the theme (puns not only okay but intentionally allowed for)
I write at least one story or vignette or beginning of a story to at least one of your prompts. (Or try to, see my prompting policy if you have questions)
(optional step: you say “Lynnnnnn! Cliffffhanggger! What happens next?”)
Ideal step: you comment on the fictions I have written, possibly also boosting the signal on social media.
I continue until morale improves, or until my writing vacation is over, or until I lose power and am reduced to writing on my phone.
Everyone is welcome to prompt, and prompting is free!
If you are a new reader/prompter, please let me know, and please let me know also from whence you came.
One note: Prompts of a sort I like are somewhere in the middle: not a complete scenario and not just one-three words. “Ice Fishing”: a bit too broad. “Three people go ice fishing on a day the ice is about to thaw. One of them falls through because of the actions of the other two. What happens next?” is a little too specific.
