Welcome to week 2 of the Weekly Wasted Words—it’s not a challenge, it’s a community. That’s an adorable little tagline that I just came up with.
Jokes aside, week 1 had an amazing turnout and I’m hoping everyone comes back again this week for another trip to the flash idea well. As motivation, we’ve come up with a couple badges for writing stories. You all can earn fancy little badges to go under your user name at 5, 10, 20, and 30 weeks of participation. The weeks don’t have to be consecutive, if you’re busy one week or a certain prompt doesn’t grab you by the danglies (or equivalent) no sweat. We’ll be back next week.
So, without further ado, here’s this weeks prompt from none other than Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas:
In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.
As usual, shoot for whatever you can spit out in 15-30 minutes. No pressure. If it’s your first time visiting us, please check out our rules post for some rough guidelines. Otherwise, get to typing. I want to see where you all take this one.
