And, for the creative types on this Monday filled with Internet deals, here's a prompt to get you in your weekly writing groove:

It's Cyber Monday and, after a longing to shed your past life and start anew, you've decided to sell everything in your house at a steep discount on eBay. A few items sell before an anonymous bidder offers to buy EVERYTHING, though the person isn't offering money. Write a scene where you contact the bidder and discuss his or her offer.

Post your response in the comments section. Would love to see what wild and crazy things people chose to use as currency.

*Offer not valid on VIP program enrollment or renewal, subscriptions, software, critique services, products that ship directly from the manufacturer, or the Premium Collection. Cannot be combined with other offers. Prices subject to change, and are only valid at www.writersdigestshop.com.
