Your prompt posts are awesome.
So much fun. I've been into another project, so I haven't been able to do them, but hopefully I'll start up again soon. They are challenging, and that's a good thing!!

I'm really glad you enjoy them.

When I get unburied from deadlines, I am going to be holding drawings along with these every-Tuesday prompts. For those who comment on the post, I will offer a critique of the person's scene if their name is drawn.

Hope to start that in a month or so.
