How to Participate

The prompts are for your own practice and development. You don’t have to show anyone. If you would like to leave your response in the comments on this site, that would be fine. If you would like to post them in the comments on my Facebook Page, that is also good. If the response gets sufficiently large, I will consider creating a Facebook Group so that there is a contained area to interact, but for now the first two options are available.
