I want to mention that Brian did an amazing job with all the prompts he wrote for this challenge, Your amazing Brian, and I love you for sharing your writings with us.

I will start tomorrow reading three pieces of my winners work. Each day after until I have read and given a comment on them.

Thank you all, and thank you for making this contest an awesome one!

Below you will find three prompts and the rules for each one.
