Welcome to the prompt exchange for this week! If you signed up, you should have received your prompt via email. If you didn’t receive an email, please check your spam folder. If you still can’t find it, please send us an email at and we will check it out.

There aren’t many rules. Write something that responds to the prompt. Include the footer; the information for that is in the email, too. If you are on Twitter, please tweet your response and make sure to give credit to the person who gave you the prompt. Once you are done, post a link in the comments here so we can read your work and include it in the weekly round-up. If your response to a prompt completely blows us away, we may ask you to submit a piece to Scriptic for publishing.

The deadline is Thursday, October 4, at midnight Eastern time.

Here is a list of people who signed up for this week, and the prompts to which they’ve been assigned. If your name isn’t on the list, please visit this page to sign up for next week.


  • Grace O’Malley Prompt: When I was among the oldest, I took that kind of thing for granted. But now that I’m one of the young ones, I find it very hard to come by.
  • Michael Prompt: Archaeopteryx, Inc.
  • Wendryn Prompt: And everything was going so well, too.
  • Eric Misener Prompt: Write from the perspective of someone in the same situation as the Greek, Cassandra – she sees the future but no one believes her.
  • Supermaren Prompt: Well, this certainly gives new meaning to the phrase ‘the apple of his eye.’
  • Jester Queen Prompt: Write a story in which one character is telling a lie.
