August 21 will be the first time in 99 years that a total solar eclipse crosses the USA. Beginning after August 21--if you were lucky enough to experience totality--write about it. Any genre. No word limit. It'll be my first totality--I've waited all my life for this. I'll be there. Let those who saw it with me immortalize it.
