  1. Here’s mine, I’m not sure of the genre, maybe Inspirational/Contemporary, I don’t think it would fit in Science Fiction, it’s not that science Fictioney, lol. I know you challenged me with the western genre, but that is soooo out of my realm, so glad it got filled up this week, phew…thanks David. LOL.

  2. ROFL. Somewhere along the way I swear I saw mention of “train” as the prompt… But it’s obviously “ride.”
    Ehh, well, I think it still works. Now I have to wonder, what would I have written if I’d gotten the word down correctly?

    1. Oh man, David. I’m beginning to wonder if I was typing in my sleep at some point in time (which I wouldn’t put past me) and gave two different prompt words for the week. haha For some reason there’s been confusion all around, but whatever story you wrote, I’m sure it’s going to be good. 🙂
