Scavenger Hunt

Once upon a time… my friend and I took part in a writing scavenger hunt. Basically, you’re given a list of writing topics and you do what it says. It was lots of fun, but ended up taking more time than I’d expected – I never did finish the challenge. I’m a perfectionist that way. If I can’t do it well, I won’t do it at all. Sad but true.
