I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their holiday season. I’m taking some time off between now and January to recharge for the new year, but before I do that, I’m going to take a minute and look back on 2020. Thanks to all of you wonderful people, 2020 was the best year I’ve had in terms of views and visitors on the website. I also put out a ton of Writing Prompt pieces so I thought I’d list a few of my favorites in order by the month they were published. Also these will have a short paragraph below them explaining the Writing Prompt so you’ll have some idea of what you’re going to read. Additionally, I put on a similar list of Poems if you haven’t read that one yet. So go ahead, read through this list and then check out the other. Thank you again and see you in 2021!
