Starting Date: Friday, August 2, 2013
Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

This month's prompt:
Child of the devil

Whether the devil be literal, figurative, or Cruella. As always, can be prose, poetry, play, fiction, nonfiction.

Instructions:
Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn. Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete a blog post using the prompt. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread.

If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you! Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post.

Everyone thru pyrosama is added. Do kind of like the "fire and ice" effect of pyrosama and articshark next to each other...!

It seems ishtar'sgate was fast out of the gate! But that's okay :D I won't be adding my post until Friday, though, which is actually well within the traditional two-day window.

That's awesome Tara. Once I get some of the current projects off my plate, I think I will use some of the writing prompts to do some of that myself. lol

See that cover? This novella started out as my February Blog Chain Post (Prompt: Unfortunate Sport). My mind works in mysterious ways.
Nice! Way to go!

Perhaps some day we should do a showcase of all the blog post prompts that turned into longer works...or some kind of compilation of peoples' favorite entries :)
