Can I just say that I'm not at all surprised that you created such an amazing prompt list? And may I also say that I'm so happy you told me it was here? Because I am. I'm immediately drawn to a bunch of these, which is awesome. But, I must say that "pillow laughter" is totally my favorite.

You're so creative. All hail to Shane!

I'm sure whatever you use to ignite a piece of art will find its way into a great piece of literature :D if you actually did all these, I will be happily shocked!
