These are my own stories from the prompts I've provided. I'd be a sorry-ass administrator if I didn't write the prompts with you guys, wouldn't I? Hell yes, I would.

Who's mouth is that?

It is Chris Cornell's mouth from a bootleg cd of a Soundgarden concert from 1993 (or 1989 or 1991, there's no telling with those things). The picture was stolen long before the internet existed so I think we can allow it to be grandfathered in as the group icon without too much static.

Scream is the name of his most recent solo album, one co-produced with Timbaland. Old school Soundgarden fans still living in 1992 wrapped in their old flannel HATED this album because it wasn't like his old stuff. He took a chance and went in a new direction. That is what inspired the name of this group -- trying something totally new or something that might go against what you've been doing for years CAN be a good thing with good results. Seeing as the album is absolutely fantastic, I felt it was only right to see if that concept would apply here as well.

:wave: Hello. Welcome to ScreamPrompts. Go to the About Us page and read the "About Us" information. Then read the Manifesto. Both are very important regarding whether or not you belong here. Not everyone does. That is fine. It is not personal. Not everyone is ready to be awesome. But when you are, I'll be here waiting.

:star: If you're not already watching my personal page, add me to your watch as soon as possible. Oftentimes I have information for ScreamPrompts in my journal over there that you should be aware of, stuff that might help you succeed, stuff that might make you proud, stuff that could really help. And on occasion, I might spotlight one of you all. So please, add me to your watch list. I will return the favor if I'm not already watching you.

Office Hours (Pacific Standard Time):

:bulletred: You can generally reach me after midnight, Pacific Standard Time; that's when I'm more likely to be here. Of course, I respond to all notes within 24 hours.

:bulletblue: To stay up to date with prompts and other information, please read the blog entries. There are important things to know and other things to consider hidden in them sometimes... there's no telling what I might wharrgarbl about.

:bulletgreen: If this is your first time here, read the Manifesto (…. It is very important that you do. This group is not for everyone, just those who want to help the Lit Community improve by actively improving their writing.

:bulletpink: To learn about how I run this show , read the "About Us" page. It is as important as the Manifesto, even if it's not as entertaining.

:bulletpurple: Feel like you've missed a prompt? No worries; click on the Journal link and you'll find the List. The prompts don't expire so if you want to try one out, go for it. Remember, you must be a member if you want your work to have a shot of making it to the gallery.

:bulletblack: For current and future members, I am compiling stories from the prompts for publication for charity. Read more here:…

:star: If you are a poet, good for you. I don't accept poetry of any sort here whatsoever, not even "prose poetry", and don't think I don't check. However, there is a group out there for you that was inspired by this group, HammeredPoetry. Check them out. Tell CrumpetsHarvey I sent you.

Of three groups I was a part of this was the only one current when I came back. Yay! I will not do March, but I will do the next one.

I will not do March, but I will do the next one.

You can always come back and do any of the prompts that you've missed.  There's never a guarantee that any of the prompts will be easier than the next, so keep that in mind ;-)
I just enjoy doing them with the group. I may go back and do some older ones. I need the practice. Thanks for the suggestion.

I really enjoyed how you introduced the group and yourself, so much more engaging than the usual five-sentence stuff. This group seems like just the right kick in the butt for me to finally stop making excuses for my reluctance to write prose. Can't wait to have the chance to see what you've selected to feature in the gallery.
