Happy New Year! I decided to do a reflection/goals post after all. Seemed fitting to ring in the new year with a new blog post, even if it isn’t exactly a prompt. 2018 spanned at least twelve years, but we survived and we’re barreling into 2019 all fired up and ready to kick some ass. … Continue reading New Year, Same Blog
Yeah I dunno how to label these. I guess I could have just kept on counting; the week numbers don't really have any bearing on the prompts. But since I made it an interval last week, I'm doubling down this week. Besides, after I get through this week, it'll be back to our regularly scheduled … Continue reading Week 31.5 The Second

They’re shaped by the cultures we are born into and often … Continue reading Prompt 105-What’s In a Name
I still can’t believe I’ve written from 100 prompts this year. Some have come easier than others, and I tend to make clear which ones I’ve preferred over the ones I’ve hated. When I first started out back in January, I had ambitions of turning every prompt into a short story. As I closed in … Continue reading June Special: Recurring Characters
Alrighty ladies, gents, and enbies, I am back after my brief sojourn! What a difference a week off makes. I didn't fully appreciate how difficult it would be to write a short story every day in addition to working my full-time job and after 50 prompts I was thoroughly drained. Now, though, I'm itching to … Continue reading New format! Week 11 begins!
