After a month off for the holidays, the mid-month short story challenge is back. If you’re new to the challenge, the rules are simple. Follow the prompt/guidelines below and write a story based off of that prompt. If you’re posting the story on a blog or a publicly shared document, try to have the post up by the deadline so that I can share it. If you’re finding this after the fact, share your post whenever (and let me know so I can link back to the post).
Your prompt is for this month below. Your story should be posted on February 1, 2018. Be sure to link back to this post so I can see your story and share.

- Seven words to work into your story: Sweatpants, immaculate, bird, independently, toque, flattery, polkadot

Good luck and happy writing.
