#coolprompts for this week: 9 July – 15 July 

Read 10 phrases/quotes of Nobel Prize Winners. Pick one and use it in your text/writing. 

To participate: post a story, poem or flash on your blog, tag the post – #coolprompts, pingback to Ray’s post (or any last post on RayNotBradbury’s Blog), if you want me to come over, read and comment. Any genre/style is welcome! No boundaries at all! It’s OKAY to bend the rules. Have fun!
