FINISH THAT THOUGHT #24
It was the week before Christmas and all through the internet.... Oh, nevermind. We have a writing prompt for you!!!! Welcome to Finish That Thought #24! We will continue through the holidays, so be sure to follow the blog so you get an email telling you when it's gone live - it can be very difficult to remember with everything else going on. If no one shows up on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve...I won't take it personally (read: I will be utterly heartbroken), but hopefully you'll be here with amazing stories to share! So let's get this party started! If you'd like to compete for an optional Festive award, include "the week before [Christmas]" in your story. (I can't help it - we will probably have Festive awards for the next couple weeks!) Have at you then!
If you need to read the full version of the rules, go here. Otherwise, here's the short version:
1. Up to 500 words
2. Keep it clean (nothing rated R or above)
3. Start with the given first sentence.
4. Optional Special Challenge
5. Include Twitter/email, word count, Special Challenge accepted
6. The challenge is open for 24 hours on Tuesday EST
Oh, and feel free to change pronouns, punctuation, tense, and anything in brackets to fit the story/pov/tone. I'm not going to be TOO picky... Our judge however...
Our Judge today is Eric Martell also known as @drmagoo. Check out his blog here. Read his winning tale from last week here!

It hit [him] then, what [he'd] forgotten.
