  13. Hi, I actually posted on the NaNoWriMo forums that I wanted to take part in the experiment and all, but I can't seem to find my post anymore. alas and alack.
    Anyway, amazing prompt; by sheer coincidence, it fits perfectly with a story idea I was already pondering. It's a sign! :P

  18. I love this project and have sent you an email to sign up. This is a great prompt but the first thing I thought when I read it was 'Dexter'. While he's a great character - I don't want to write about him. LOL So, we'll see if inspiration hits me tonight - or not
