the weeks drabble prompts (25th of August)

this weeks drabble prompts are:

harp: play that funky music harp boy.. what?

music: yes we have had this prompt before but its a good one to go back to. Pop your headphones on and play a favourite or random track and let the music inspire your writing and write down whatever pops into your head.

chocolate: nothing says calorific like if you need inspiration and an excuse for eating more chocolate than is healthy.
