    Are we supposed to comment here every week after we post? (On the weekly prompt page?) I just saw this. In week 11. 🙂

    By the way, this has been so much fun! Thanks for organizing!

    I hope it can be forgiven that ours is more an informational piece than a flash fiction this time. I’m just being able to get back to writing consistently, and this prompt was super helpful in getting our bearings with our main story.
    I am really going to miss this “challenge” when it’s done. I put “challenge” in quotes because even though the prompts are challenging, working on them has been one of the few times I’ve felt relaxed during this very stressful year.
