    I wouldn't mind having the prompt a week earlier - give more time for ideas to percolate. Shouldn't create extra work for anyone, just shift the voting forward. No biggie though.

    Yeah, and I can sort of see this happening in this thread with people suggesting before the two weeks writing is up. That's definitely doable.

    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.

    No, and can't remember who did.

    I've just had a think and maybe I did, but I doubt it. I can't remember. What I did suggest was a prompt-free month. But, as you say, if it ain't broke don't fix it (or words to that effect).

    Hello folks, had a score drafted in pm to bd two nights ago up to third from last entry, working offline on my screenshattered batterysplattering tablet. Somehow tab refreshed, no form data saved so lost all them typing hours. Busy with potato planting season, so will have a barebones score by weekend end... pretty much got the numbers, but my analysis will be lacking. I'll note the major points but it's gonna be basic, so feel free to ask me afterward if you want a deeper answer.

    I think a no prompt month is just as valid. It might give a few folks the opportunity to write that story that's been burning a hole in their keyboard but haven't been able to fit into previous months.

    "When a child is abused, he or she will often internalise that abuse as deserved. It is a cruel reality that a child needs the parent so much, is evolutionarily programmed to trust them so implicitly, that when a parent is abusive the child will take the blame rather than completely upend their world and blame the person they depend on for survival." -velo
