Quote of the Week

“I realized that the good stories were affecting the organs of my body in various ways, and the really good ones were stimulating more than one organ. An effective story grabs your gut, tightens your throat, makes your heart race and your lungs pump, brings tears to your eyes or an explosion of laughter to your lips.” 

-  Christopher Vogler

Prompt of the Week

 You're fifteen. You are just starting driver's ed with your best friend.  It doesn't go well. Tell us how.
