If you’re new to prompt writing, and don’t really understand how to use the prompts, please consider the following writing exercise.

Settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink to warm your waking bones.  Once you’ve warmed up a bit; grab your journal, a trusty pen, and a timer.  Then, set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts.  Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!  Write about anything and everything that comes to your mind, and don’t stop until the ten minutes are up.

I often find myself writing short stories or poems during those ten minutes, but you can write about anything you like.  And don’t be alarmed if what you’ve written doesn’t quite make sense.  The whole idea behind doing this exercise is to get your mind ready and working so that you can begin your day.  Just think of it as exercise for your brain, and once you’ve done your ten minutes of writing, you’ll feel more prepared to tackle the rest of your day.

As always, I will be writing and posting over on my other blog, which can be found here. So please come visit me if you get a chance, and hopefully I can keep up with all of you!

And one last thing before I forget!  I made a quick tutorial for those of you who have been having trouble trying to figure out how to Pingback your posts.  Please go here, if you’d like to view the tutorial.  😉

Well, we had another great month of writing and the response was even greater than last month.  We had a few extra people join in on the fun this time around, and I want to congratulate, Dorinda Duclos, Grant Fenton, and Tessa Smeigh for completing every single prompt!  If you haven’t had the opportunity to read their work, please take a moment to visit their websites.

Like last month, I’ve included the links to all the participating prompt writers below.  I apologize ahead of time if I missed adding some of the links.  It’s getting harder to keep track now, with so many of you participating.  So, please let me know if I happened to miss any, and I’ll be happy to make the correction and add your link to the list.

You all did a great job and I feel so privileged to be part of a community of such amazing and wonderful writers!  I hope you’ll continue to write with me for the remainder of this year and into the next.  Much love to all of you!  ~M  xo
