Word Sprint Prompts for Week 4

by syaffolee

It’s the end of another year of sprinting with @NaNoWordSprints. It was both fun and harrowing. Harrowing because you’re also staring down at that deadline and writing as if your worst relatives, clowns, all of hell, and tax auditors were nipping at your heels.

Anyways, here are the last batch of sprinting prompts! Hopefully they’re of use to somebody.
