I was reading a writing prompt, that asks writers to write about a spiritual or intellectual conflict they’ve either gone through or still exists in their lives. That’s all fine, however, that is not how I read it the first time through. I read “ineffectual” instead of “intellectual.” Confused, I re-read the prompt, this time correctly.
