Prompt № 1

Happy New Year’s and welcome to the first week of Mercurial Stories. In order to respect your hangover/anxieties about that list of resolutions that experts say you will forsake in just two weeks, I am giving us all an easy one.

New Year’s Eve 2018

With the holiday still fresh in your mind, with all those hopes for the next 365 days bubbling, write a story in 500 words or less. Then submit it to by Thursday morning.

Submissions should include: a title, author’s name (or indicate if you want to remain anonymous), and website/social media handle if you wish. Writers retain all the rights to their work.

I will go through the submissions, check for readability, then post the stories on Friday.

Okay? Well, good luck and happy writing.
