June Challenge: All in a Day's Work Claims post

Claims for the June Challenge, All in a Day's Work, are now open!

As always, both members and non-members are welcome to claim prompts. We ask that you please claim only one prompt at a time; however, you may claim as many as you can do over the course of the month. If you wish, you can claim your own prompt.

Each prompt may be claimed only once.

We also invite both members and non-members to submit entries for the challenge that are not based on any of the prompts, if you have an idea that does not appear on the list of claims.

As always, gen stories and artwork of any length, size, rating, genre, and style are welcome. Members: You may post your work at any time according to the posting guidelines. Non-members: Please post your work in your own journal, then comment here or send us an email at omnio_mods @ yahoo.com with a link and we will post a link on the community.
