The Goading

Noun – a spiked stick used for driving cattle

Verb – provoke or annoy (someone) so as to stimulate some action or reaction

Even when I use a prompt, I tend to misread it on purpose. With this in mind, we’re working on “The Goading,” a page where one of our friends responds to a prompt (or not).   This section of our site is meant to be an open experiment, a safe place to submit to our prodding.  Let us provoke you to respond.  It’s traditional to think writing prompts, but we want to see work in any medium we can publish online: photos, films, drawings, diagrams, comics, music, etc.

We invite you to reply to the prompt in the comment section.  Hopefully, this will spur readers to share their own work based on the prompt.
