This month someone posted prompts referring to short stories. I did get the fascinating Nebraska poems out of that, but it's a little more time-consuming than is practical for a fishbowl, so I'm not likely to repeat the exercise. It was interesting to see how prompts stuck together, though -- once I had that setting in mind, with its native species, I could look at other prompts and try to imagine how they might attach to the current motifs.
