birds in a barrel's mission is to release creative nonfiction into the wild.

40 Days & 40 Writes is its first project.

A few minor repairs

Today I moved the prompt emails forward an hour to help out some of our writers on the East Coast. For the night owls: You should know that the daily prompts switch over at 2 a.m. PT/5 a.m. ET. 

I also believe that going forward the daily prompt emails should show you only one item at a time. As for the time-limit discrepancy, if you can write for 10 minutes, go right ahead. Otherwise, build up to it this week.

Anyway, good first day, all! I've decided to personally play along because last time I was too busy building the web site and emails. I wrote about rats.

Onward and upward!


One favor to ask
