  1. Hi Laurie ~ can you let me have the rules please? Or point me in the right direction, the link from your FB post doesn't seem to work for me :(

    How many words etc ... thank you :)

    1. There is no word limit here, Polly. You just write something based on the prompt and copy it in the comments box. I'll check my link. Sorry 'bout that.

  2. Geez! I hadn't realized that there was a space for the actual text!! I thought these were promts one could work with privately.... :)
