The prompts for today will prepare your writers for the 4th of July.
1. A Trip Back in Time
You and your friends are dressed up in 18th century clothing for the 4th of July. You are enjoying yourselves by lighting up sparklers when a mysterious fog rolls in.

Finish this story.
2. Independence Journal
