Write a human-experience short story about a homeless person during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Leave a comment and let us know how you used the prompt, and how you’re celebrating!
What is giving people pleasure right now, in this time of crisis? Stories. On screens, on paper, through speakers, in videos. Stories will save us.
And you, as a writer, have a part to play in that salvation.
If you have resources for storytellers, writers, parents, teachers, bored adults, in this time of house-bound-ness, please share them in the comments.
Me? I’m watching a lot of zoo and aquarium live feeds 😉
