    If any eager beavers want to get an early start, the story limits are 1,000 words (which does not include the title). Just don't post them anywhere yet!

    What is the official start and stop date of the week? Is is safe to assume that Saturday Aug 31 is the start for the first prompt, and that Sept 7th is the start of the next one?
    God hates a coward Revelation 21:8

    Sorry I'm a little confused. Can you please confirm what each number refers to, as it looks as if each is a week (52 weeks in a year), but then does 1 (week one) refer to the week starting tomorrow, and if so, then does that mean the list covers from Sept 2019 to Sept 2020, or have I got that all wrong?

    And does that then mean the first week (tomorrow's) story subject is "The Afterlife", or have I again made the proverbial hearing organ found on a porcine beast of things here?

    Excellent work, thank you Ma'am!

    Do the winners also get a shinning WF medal on top of the $5 Amazon voucher?
    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!

    7) A Story Based on a Song (list the song at the end)

    Hmmm... this prompt confuses me a bit. Would something like this qualify?

    "Who came first, the walrus or the egg?" asked the walrus.

    "Well that's a timeless old question, isn't it," replied the eggman. "Have you considered the possibility of 'Goo goo g'joob'?"
