Writing Prompts

Looking for a little inspiration? Something to knock the cobwebs off your imagination? I invite you to join in one, or both of these writing challenges. Read over the prompts and see where they take you.

Link to The Darkroom by clicking on the site badge. The 100 Word Challenge is hosted here, at Thin spiral notebook, each Wednesday.

Hope to see you around.  Now, go… write something.

    1. Ninnanh, I don’t send out the prompts, I post them on my site each Wednesday morning. You are welcome to join in there. You can post your response to the prompt on your own site, linking back to the specific prompt, or you can submit your response as a comment on the prompt post. Please, come back for the weekly challenges.
