For a limited run of six weeks only, the challenge you love is back.
It starts with a prompt every Sunday. The responses need only be short and sweet. Or short and scary. Or, short and funny. The point is, the challenge will always require short replies on purpose . . . so YOU have no excuses.
The primary focus of the #SSC is to help authors forge connections in the writing community. So, if you decide to respond to this week’s prompt, just remember to comment (reply) to at least three other entries before voting opens on Saturday, June 3rd.
All challenge winners are invited to write a GUEST POST on Scribbles on Cocktail Napkins with LINKS to their own work.
This week the Scribble Challenge prompt is a throwback to my FAVORITE #SSC of 2016. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to:

“Book falls to bed.
Vanished.” –J. H. Winter, Author
“Sadly, the only witness was blind.” –Allison Maruska
“The meatloaf tasted funny. Where’s Grandma?” -Ahdad
“Grandma visited today. As a ghost.” –Stomperdad
“Amongst toys and coffins they lay.” –Ellenbest24
