Inventive Writing Prompt Round-up #1

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I've started a daily writing prompt blog on Tumblr.   However, one of my wonderful readers pointed out that it was impossible to get those posts emailed from Tumblr.  So I had a brainstorm:  why not do a weekly round-up post of the prompts?   And so, here […]

Announcing…Punch for Prompt

If you're a regular visitor to this blog, you've probably noticed a new tab here.  It is called Punch for Prompt, and it's basically a place where you can punch a purple bar and get yourself a prompt.  And then another.  And then another.  A nearly endless supply of them, to be exact.  You can […]

Promptitude: Wide Open Spaces

I just got back from visiting southeastern Oregon.  The east side of Oregon is totally different from the west side of Oregon, where I, and most of the state's population, lives.  The east side is basin and range, gold and brown, mesas, cattle, warm, dry, long stretches of wide open spaces.

Promptitude: Rain

It has been raining here forever.  Worst spring in ages.  It is not for me to complain, however, because when I was in Nashville last weekend, the temperatures hit 90 degrees.  And the sun shone nearly every day I was there.  Plus, bad storms hit the day before I arrived and a few days after […]

Promptitude: New Moon

Tomorrow is the new moon.  Yesterday we had our first 60 degree day here in Portland (it actually hit 68).  Spring officially began a couple of weeks ago.  New life, new energy and new excitement is blossoming everywhere. Time for some creative writing prompts that focus on the new. The thing that I love about […]
