How do you 'The Prose'?
A fellow writer on the site passed on 'The Prose' to me back around 2017. Lots of changed since then. Most recently, I have enjoyed playing games, getting involved in the discord group- and the youtube channel is coming along nicely since it started not long ago. I like to think of 'The Prose' as a creative outlet, space for inspiration and hopefully where I may be inspiring others at times- somewhere to slap something up for a grin and for late night searching for 'something' to read not knowing what I am looking for. I sometimes describe the site as my 'pocket' for keeping starters, dropping lil nuggets of silliness, or throwing out things to the writing family that is the body of 'The Prose' just because it is a great place to do so. Over the years, I have sold some of my work, made and paid out from challenges and tips- I have met some awesome writers, and made a few friends. There are other writing corners out there in the big www, and all a bit different. So... what how do you 'The Prose'? What do you enjoy the most of the site, how long have you been here? What does it mean to you?

Over the summer I threw up a post titled 'tomato sandwich' My challenge is for someone to write the first part to what I posted. Tag me if you like, but I will get to reading them all by Halloween for your $20 treat. I will take likes into consideration, but will ultimately choose the person who sets the stage best. Should be a fun one. https://www.theprose.com/post/748676/tomato-sandwich
I try and write for every challenge I can before the dates end. I hope you will take the time to enter this one. I offer you the opportunity to share what in your life right now is a challenge to you personally, and what was something in your 'before' that you thought at that time was just as big of a challenge for you, but now is not? Any form- cause that ripple effect. Winner gets a a gallon of gas- all entries get to inspire and hopefully be inspired.

Write a poem about Jesus- but describing him as something that is translated through your senses, maybe as the pleasing aroma of mountain air, the taste of fresh figs, the feeling of holding an ice cube too long... Match your relationship with him to the relationship you have with whatever you chose to describe him with- make it personal and true to your own experience. A prize will be awarded.
describe a color that does not exist
Use your imagination to name, and describe a new color WITHOUT using any other color or shade in the description. Have fun. Try and remember to tag me, or I won't see all of your creativity. There could be juice in your future. :)

.to win or not to win.
Winning challenges here are fun. Winning anything can be fun, but when you put not just your work, but also yourself into something you have created, it is such a sweet reward. I have lost, but and especially here on Prose, I have won. So, I would like to know about something in your life you have won and how it felt prior and after. Keep it clean, and tag me because I won't remember to look. I am using some prize money to juice those who have earned perhaps the smallest of wins but have been overjoyed even in something that took hard work for simple acknowledgment. xo
A poem to...
Write a poem about being in love with an appliance in your home. Nothing sexual in nature please. Be silly or serious but end every poem with 'and that is why I love you' please tag me in submissions. :)
Let those of us who do, fall backwards!
:). Hello writers. In the states an old tradition that dates back to some really cool history (depending on who you ask, I am somewhat of a dork in my special interests, one being history) and which has drawn a lot of attention in recent years... the changing of the clocks. Where I am in the US we 'spring' an hour forward when winter is at an end and we 'fall' back an hour as we transition into winter. SO my challenge is... you are given one extra hour Sunday night November 1st of this year at 2am. How would you fill that 'extra' hour, what would you do during this sanctioned time traveling? I plan to send a lil 'juice' to my favorite. Have fun and I look forward to responses! :) Oh... ya know what...If you are someone who has in the past voted (yes it has been on a ballot or two) and you feel strongly about the abolishment of the tradition, please by all means state your case... but please live in an area that is effected by the practice. Perhaps 'juice' will come to a great argument as well. yeah!

Let's hear about your 2020... what have you learned? How are you different? Have your thought or opinions changed? In any form you like (except please, please, please, not the vertical one word at a time in a list of words, I have a brain injury and if it is one word at a time I can't ready it; makes me seasick) xo What came into your life that was good? What did you loose? Knowing we are just weeks away from another 'new year' does it change the way you think about another 'new start'? . For the sake of us all, no political centered posts, please. I have lost too many friends over such nonsense. . I think I may be more interested in I thought this years would be.... but instead it was..... . Juice for the the stories that make me happy, or perhaps opposite to that, a little better based on how disgustingly messed up my elated expectations and then the reality of what it has been.
Give me a good tid-bit
Lemmie hear something interesting, odd, or just cool. Also, tell me how you know that nugget of what may be little known facts. Keep it rated PG, please. Short and simple is great- or a bit longer with a story is always satisfying as well. The fact must be something you already knew... no asking uncle google for help... be honest fellow wordsmiths! Start your post with 'Did you know...' and then free type that knowledgeable little crumble. If I did not know your little known fact, I may drop ya a buck or two. :D I will go first to set the bar. Did you know... cashews are not actually a nut? They grow on a tree and produce fruit that sort of resembles a colored pepper (or capsaicin if you are not in the US) and on the fruit grows what people THINK is a nut, but it isn't. A quick google search can take you to a fantastic photo. I learned this from trying to tell my Gram why cashews cost more than peanuts and why there was never 'heavy cashew' in the mixed nuts she was so fond of. :)
