Hi Marcela! :-) I was delighted to hear the origin and fruits of the "to get here today" prompt. It's been a personal favorite of mine that I have passed down to my students. How did you realize that you could use it repeatedly and come up with fresh material each time? (Also, forgive me if you already said, but when did you first encounter this prompt?)
