I started this blog almost two years ago simply as a place to post the flash fiction and occasional poetry written in response to prompts at other sites. ShiftnShake is a place of literary art.

BUT. I did like how you cleverly used this one as a lure to get your point across to the widest audience possible. Well played! 😀 😀 😀
