Weekly Roundup (June 30 – July 5)

Typewriter Letters

It’s that time of the week again, folks! I’m a little late getting this up, so I’ll just cut to the chase. You know the drill: you sign up. You give someone random a writing prompt. They respond in kind. Mischief and mayhem ensue.

Interested in signing up? You can do so here.

    So in my email Cheney was listed as giving me my prompt, but here SAM is listed. Can you tell me which is correct? I’d like to give proper credit…Thanks!

    Andrea – it was SAM. I messed up the shuffle email last week because it was my first time doing it. SO sorry! I am now assigning myself 1,000 lashes with a wet noodle.
