Writer Wars: Hope

Sparkler mudbloodandproud hit the nail on the head when she took a guess at the inspiration behind last week's prompt: "Hope? I think Chelsea hopes to read happy stories for once." I DID, SPARKLEBUTTS, I TRULY TRULY DID. But for the most part, y'all chose to craft tales of tragedy-I wonder why it's so often our tendency as writers to gravitate toward darker subjects? Probs Hemingway would know the answer. One day I'll trick you into writing somethin' gleeful, but for now, let's move on to the happy subject of last week's winners!

About the Author
Chelsea Dagger

Since 2010, Chelsea Dagger (known in real life as Chelsea Aaron) has been SparkLife's sweatiest editor. She's currently working on a how-to-kiss guide for teens, and when she's not conducting smooch-related research on her life-size Joseph Gordon-Levitt cardboard cutout, she's eating pancakes, stocking up on industrial-strength deodorant, and destroying everyone at Harry Potter trivia. (EXPECTO PATRONUM!)
