I didn't like my prompt at first, but got an idea in the middle of the night and got up and wrote it. If nothing else, the whole competition is worth the giddy feeling of getting an idea down, and knowing everyone else is doing the same. It's damn fun. And guess what? There is actually a copy of HAUNTED in my house, so maybe I'll give everybody's favorite author a try.

Fuck, these avatars remind me of that chat room last night. Half the chatters were some derivative of Chuck. 

So I am a visual guy, so if I see Dave's picture, I hear his voice and when I see Avery's picture I hear her jumblies.

See how confusing this is. Now I want to frolic in Dave's jumblies, and I wonder about the girth of Avery's lipstick.

Well ya know, I think you can adjust, after all no one is that fixated on her. Besides, I think this suits her better.

Oh, Covewriter, that is great. Just for the record though, he is not my favorite author. 

@Richard: That happens a lot. All that matters, I think, is that there is inspiration to write.

Okay, I am going to open my prompt and if it has anything to do with Unicorns I am in trouble. Or maybe Nikki is.

Good luck peep-holes.

I leave for one 6 hour long meeting and everybody changes faces.  This is fucking confusing! 

Avery, you take your face back from that...that...MAN.  You let this masculo-centric society steal your freedom and your dignity.  Don't let them steal your face too.
