Hoppy Easter, Ghoul Friends!

And welcome to the latest Mutant 750.

This one’s going out a little late tonight, but that happens sometimes.

So, it seems that we didn’t have any submissions last week, but that’s not going to stop the frolick in the meadow.

Before we get to this week’s prompt, here are a few important reminders:

  • Voting for the most recent Shapeshifting 13 Challenge is now open!
  • Don’t forget to keep in touch: Follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or sign up for our mailing list.
  • The Mutant 750 goes live every Sunday at 8pm ET. The grid will stay open until Thursday at 8:00 p.m., after which voting will open. Voting ends on Saturday at Noon ET. Winners will be announced in the same post as the next week’s prompts on Sunday. Details can be found here.

We’re continuing our first challenge series for the Mutant 750, which we’re calling:

Ghouls in the Meadow

In this challenge series, you will be provided with a word that works as both a noun and a verb. Your challenge is to use the word prompt in both provided ways–there’ll be two definitions provided, so use both definitions in your story. As always, a visual prompt will be provided!
