Writing today is the start of writing every week, which is the start of writing every other day, which is the start of writing EVERY DAY.
Here are 10 (Or More?) Writing Prompts for you to try out just for fun. They're a little goofy.

Here are my questions to you:
-Are you thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo?
-Are you already prepping for November?
-Are you working on something else?
Share your thoughts in any case! I WANT TO KNOW.
