We've tried our hand at poetry ... time to move on to prose.
Type up the first paragraph of your first prose piece under this post (using the comments - you know the drill). Remember, this first paragraph should be compelling and enticing. Draw readers in with your presentation of conflicts, use of imagery, diction (or whatever other method works best) so they will wish you had posted the entire story.
Oh, yes. One more thing: Don't forget to "sign" your name at the end of the first paragraph using the NUMBER assigned to you.
