    My wife, Tess, hasn’t been writing and asked me to give her three prompts to help her get started. I shared them with Jam in chat, and she and Zette suggested I post them here.

    1) Your character just found out their grandmother is a supernatural creature, and that they are the inheritor of her legacy.

    2) You character has lost an item valuable to their family or community and has not yet found it when someone asks about it.

    3) Last night’s storm deposited something unexpected on the back lawn and your character has to figure out what to do about it before anyone else notices it.

    You know, a really crazed person could work all three of those into one story. Not me of course. No. Really — too much going on … (must take notes).

    I have been really crazed at times, and I feel that familiar tickle after reading these prompts. That means danger ahead for myself or others. Thanks for posting these!

    I just posted the first 2 scenes of my attempt to Snippets. Read with caution, my craziness may be contagious.
