100 Word Prompts

Each 100 Word Challenge prompt link-up is open for one week, however; submissions can continue to be added as a comment on each specific prompt post, or as a link to your post in the comments. Please, remember to link back to the original prompt post so other Wordsters can find you, and so your readers can find us.
