Because of NaNoWriMo going on, I have decided to push back the deadline for this current prompt. I will start giving prompts out monthly instead of weekly. That means that the prompt given out below is due on: December 1, 2012. Sorry for the inconvenience!
-End of Update-
Last week's prompt was: "Health Disorder"
Here are the pieces written for this prompt:
Disorder"What do you do?by: ~Lupuswolf13
Can somebody tell me how to make this end?
What do you do when you mind is flooded with these cancerous thoughts,
Spreading through your brain, spawning more like them, crushing to death all sense of rational and coherent thought.
What have I become?
Where did my life go?
How do I get back all that I have lost?"
I can't do it! If you entertain these thoughts you only fall faster.
Down into the void where all your dreams have fallen before.
Your desperate fight against madness is only driving you to madness!
Can't you see?
You have lost nothing.
You have only changed, you've grown.
Do not stagnate

Introducing Doctor Hugo Raines, Dermatologist
When I again encountered my former medical school colleague, Hugo Raines, he was very preoccupied in his small clinical laboratory. Throughout our acquaintance, Raines was a brilliant and determined dermatologist. Many of his discoveries had been quickly acknowledged and accepted by both his calling and by medicals in general. Then, he informed me that he desired to discover the secret to revitalize dead ad diseased skin. I was not taken aback by his words. He had a valid reason to investigate. Rather, I agreed readily that it was a brilliant and much needed skill.
"You see, Philip, the idea occurred to me only last year when my wife of three years, Sophie, suddenly contracted a strange skin disease that..that made her skin look..cadaverous."
That made me jump. I stared both in shock and in sympathy.
"Indeed. Sophie was quite sad at the effect. I vowed to find the method to revitalize her skin."
Viva la Vidaby: ~SaphirePZ
To the dear woman
who paints the pain
that tortures her limbs
You--not the painter of dreams
or the nightmares that haunt you
Rather, you paint your dream-like reality
Your legs have turned against you
But you have learned not to need them
For you have wings of gold to fly
The terrible accident,
the trolley that has left you paralyzed
Weak was it's intent; Strong you have become
With the stroke of your touch
You paint those tears that have never fallen
In your portraits they're free, carrying the message of pain
Even with your many sisters
You are still often alone
Your portraits, your only friends—you are the subject that you kn
I am having trouble with picking one to feature on the front of our group page. They are completly different pieces, yet they are all so wonderful.
So here is what I will do. I will feature all the submissions on the front of the group page. In the comments below, you will tell me if I should continue to feature only ONE or feature ALL. Really, I am only one person, so it is hard thinking of ways to satisfy everyone. Eventually, I will add more admins to the group. I am still thinking of ways on how that is going to work. But seriously, I need some help.
I figured that if I have more than one person deciding on featured prompts, then we will get a better idea of which ones to choose. It's callled "voting" LOL.
So that stuff ---^
So this week's prompt is going to be a little different. In the three pictures below, you choose one to write about. You can write a story about the picture, a poem that the picture gave you inspiration for, etc.
Here are the pictures (found on deviantart, credit given to the artist who created them):
1. You have until next Friday to submit your piece of writing for this prompt. Every Friday, prompts are due and new ones are given.
2. You can only submit once every prompt. If you try to submit more than one prompt, they will all be removed.
