Blast from the past, or “You HAD to encourage her, didn’t you!?”
Tracy Fabre and Con Chapman, from back in the Gather days: In a comment on his Gather post today, Con said he wanted to go into the business of providing writing prompts. I “hired” him (pro bono, of course) to suggest a prompt for this week. He said, “A priest, a rabbi and a lady snake charmer walk into a bar…”
Now run with it, folks.
Well, it wasn’t so much a bar as it was a tube. And it wasn’t so much a tube as a tunnel. And it wasn’t so much a tunnel as an underground cavern.
Really, they didn’t so much walk into it as trip over a low wall. And they really more plummeted than tripped, being chased by werewolves.
Who weren’t so much werewolves as zombie armadillos. Because the tunnel was really a magic well, into which they fell, one after the other. Spinning, screaming, through sulphurous darkness.
But not in the same week.
Because the Dread Mistress must be fed.

Ha! That was first line first class bait.
I got hooked, well not so much hooked as reeled in.

Thanks! We had such fun online-writing camaraderie back on Gather–
some truly gloriously goofy minds setting up the prompts!
