I thought I’d take a second and reflect on 2019 by sharing some of my favorite Writing Prompts I wrote this year and put them in a nice list for all of you to enjoy. Last year I broke them up by month and highlighted 12 Writing Prompt Pieces (Plus some honorable mentions). However, this year there were some very bare months and I am not able to break up the list that way. This year I’ve listed five of my top Writing Prompt Pieces (plus some extras) which I think you may enjoy to either read for the first time or revisit as we reflect on 2019. These also have some plot summaries if you want to give the summary a quick read before jumping into the Writing Prompt Pieces.
