It's too late. The floodgates are already open.

Or should I say the floodgoats?

There was a cat one going around a couple of years ago that was very entertaining.

It occurs to me that @Raptori can simply re-submit March's story about the Kid.
Goat.
Surprise ending.
Just add a vampire.  ;D

So now my problem is that I have two stories written for this prompt.
If you all see a new member named "Atku God of Goats" submitting a story, you'll know what's going on.  ;)

Took me a while to decide on an idea and still not completely sure it's "Twist-worthy," but I'm going with it anyway.

Because I like teasing people, think this with the themes of Peter Orullian's The Hell of It. Now I just need to find time to write it down and hope I can squeeze all this under 1.5K.

My issue is that I have too many story ideas for this one and they're just ideas, not proper plots, the bloody plot bunny goes into hyperdrive at this time of year. She was born about now and there's a lot of chocolate around, they live on chocolate, so she gets very active.

Same here. At least nothing worth writing. I don't think I have felt this unimaginative in ages.  :(

Well, fortunately there is still plenty of time left.

Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.
