WRITING PROMPT: Taxing Texts
free to take the following prompt home or post a
response (500 words or fewer, funny, sad or stirring) in the Comments
section below. By posting, you’ll be automatically entered in a random swag book drawing that will take place Tuesday, with the winners announced Wednesday. If you’re having trouble
with the captcha code sticking, e-mail your piece and the prompt to me
at email@example.com, with “Promptly” in the subject line, and
I’ll make sure it gets up. Happy weekend.
Write the text message that made her laugh, made him cry, and changed things permanently.
[Write simply the text message, or a story featuring it.]
