Mutant 750: Winner of #71, Prompts for #72 + Announcement

May 21, 2017

Greetings, Lady Ghouls and Gentleghouls!

It’s Sunday, so it must be time for another Mutant 750 challenge! However–

We have a little something to tell you.

Tony Ghoul of Bedbug’s Writing

I have loved every moment of being a part of Grammar Ghoul Press. In my opinion, simply writing posts for you, finding word and visual prompts, and actually participating in challenges has helped to improve my writing skills and creativity. I love GGP, and I hope you do, too! So, it is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation from Grammar Ghoul Press. The past two years have been amazing, so thank you for that! As you may know, I recently graduated from college with my first Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. My certification in Alabama just recently came through, and I’ve already interviewed for my first position. On top of that, I’m going to be an acting teacher at a drama camp this summer. I have a pretty full plate ahead of me, and, as much as I’d love to stay on at GGP, I know I just won’t be able to keep up with all that’s needed of me in all areas of my life. Something has to give, and, unfortunately, it’s my position at GGP. With my resignation, and with our fearless leader, Suzanne, in the midst of conference-planning, Grammar Ghoul Press will be going on a hiatus for a while. There is no definite timeframe as of right now, but, should anything change, Suzanne will announce it.


All is not over yet! We have two more week of Ghoulish awesomeness ahead of us! Our final Mutant 750 will go live on Sunday, May 28th, and our final Shapeshifting 13 Monday, May 29th. Both will close with voting beginning on Thursday, June 1st, and winners will be announced in our final post on Sunday, June 4th.

With all that out of the way, let’s get back at it this week! Before we get to this week’s prompt, let’s look at our winner(s) of the last challenge:
