Writer's Prompt #4

We've got an assignment for you. Well, it's not an assignment exactly (because "assignment" sounds like so much pressure, and extra pressure is something you don't need in your life.) Instead of an assignment, let's call it . . . what? A group activity? A challenge? A fun thing?
