PROMPT: All Talk

Haven't you mentioned before that you hated him?


So, why the sudden change?

Things change. People change.

You've also mentioned that people don't change. Ever.

Perhaps I lied. Or maybe my opinions changed, too.



Are you sure this isn't about something else?

Like what?

Like about what happened with your mo--

No! I mean, no. It's not about that at all. Look, is it possible to arrange a visit with him or not.

It is, but...I'm not...

It's Quite the Weighty Blockage

PROMPT: Improbable Flavor

When I think of an author, or illustrator of words and sentences, or just about anyone, going through a writing block, an actual block comes to mind.
