I'm a bit confused. The sign-up guidelines say, "Your second request may be from the other list and must not be the same number as the first list. (For example, if you choose 1A, your second request must come from List B, any other number except 1. A combination of 3B and 6A is acceptable, but not 6A and 6B.) This is to make sure every person has a story." [Emphasis mine.]

The first sentence implies that the second request can come from either List A or List B. The second sentence states that if you choose the first request from one list, you have to choose the second from the other list. Which is it?

Let's hope I can help you get rid of the confusion. Let's say you read both prompt list and you really really love one from list B. For your first choice you can select a prompt from the A and B list. Pick that one, but then your second choice must come from list A. Basically the second choice is limited to the opposite list you already chose from. Otherwise not everyone will end up with a story.

The only thing we do require that you cannot chose the same number from list A. So no 6B and 6A, but 6B or 7A (ect) are accepted.

Does it make more sense now?

Yes, it does. So no 6A and 6B or 6A and 7A but yes to 6A and 7B.

Another question: will we know the second prompt our recipient wants? Mostly, I'm wondering in case it's possible to use elements from the second prompt in the story we're writing for the prompt we did choose.

No, the second prompt (if given, not everyone submitted a 2nd prompt) will be reserved for the January Potluck.

Rats! I waited too long. I can't take part in the challenge now--every story prompt has been taken.

Each author was asked to give two prompts, and the unchosen prompt will be offered as part of the January Potluck.

I saw a note wherein someone mentioned they were working on their story for this exchange. Have I missed getting my assignment?

Hmm... I have your email in my "sent" box, and it didn't bounce. Do you have more than one email address? I will try sending it again.

OK, I forwarded it back to you again. If you still did not get it let me know an we'll try something else.
