    • I’m glad you liked the prompt. I am quite limited in what music and photos I can post because of copyright issues. Remember that you can always alter a prompt so that it meets your interests, needs, and ability level. This isn’t about following the directions perfectly or about getting a good grade. It is to encourage you to write and practice your craft consistently. Feel free to find a song that best serves as a soundtrack to your vacation! Happy writing!
