That One Date
We all have cringey/awful date stories, and I would love it if you shared one or more of them with us. Sometimes, it feels really good to have a laugh and know you aren't the only one.

This is the 24/7 Suicide Hotline in America. Here lately, I've read a lot of content that indicates high anxiety and depressive illnesses. The holidays are very hard for many people, and I want to create a challenge where you can hide for a moment until you get your thoughts together. You don't even have to be suicidal to call this number. I've called them during panic attacks and even general feelings of worthlessness. Please don't hurt yourself. The Prose community loves you too much to let you hurt yourself. I can't let another one of my friends be taken by self-harm and suicide. WRITE ABOUT SOMETHING THAT GIVES YOU HOPE! It doesn't have to be particularly joyful or awe-inspiring. Just write like you are speaking to someone who is fighting to survive in the crazy world.

It's one of those odd questions to ponder on a boring Wednesday at work or school. How do you think things would go if a man were to give birth one day?

I Would Actually Like To Hear A Story About You
What's your process for writing? Do you just let inspiration hit you? Do you have a ritual you do when you sit down to write? Are you a snacker, or do you get so caught up that you forget to eat? Or are you here to read and enjoy other people's stories?
