Very few writers know how to teach (and even fewer teachers know how to write). Saunders is one of the chosen few who knows how to explain a story with his heart as well as with his mind. Oh, and he is also one of my all time favorite writers.
I love making up quirky prompts. I have written all of my flash collections from prompts just like them. Paid subscribers have access to my huge prompt archive. Free subscribrs have access to prompts as posted, and they will remain visible for 24 hours.
