“I just wanna sl-zzzz” said the insomniac.
A new prompt program: yay! The prompt: “You’re given a superpower for only 2 hours. What is it, and what do you do with it?”
Is my superpower mundane? Was this gift wasted? I think not, because this morning after hours and hours of tossing and turning I did wake up. That means I fell asleep. Sleeping to those who suffer from insomnia is a wonderful superpower.

Questions about the story for you:
- Was it clear after reading the prompt that my desired superpower was to sleep?

- Did this story need more words to fulfill the prompt?
* Rich from Brainsnorts (who is one of my writing mentors, but don’t tell him I told you that, it’ll get to his head) always ends his fictional posts with story building questions. I’ve been meaning to do this with mine as well, it helps the writer improve his or her craft. I know – kinda lame choosing this 6.5-word story to start with the program… Why put off good things in life?
