Want to play with old Journalistic Intentions prompts? Here you go!
I don't always run prompt contest, but when I do, I save the old prompts from "Journalistic Intentions [18+] } for anyone that might have missed out. Feel free to use these prompts however you wish! If you do use them, feel free to let me know how and where. I am genuinely curious about how (else) these can manifest.
