There has been such a good response with this month’s writing prompts, that I’ve decided to continue creating these on a monthly basis.  I was blown away by those of you who participated.  Your poems, stories, thoughts, and ideas were so creative and thoroughly enjoyable.  I want to give special mention to Dorinda Duclos, over at Night Owl Poetry.  She exceeded my expectations by completing every single prompt for September and spurred me on in the process.  So thank you Dorinda!  You completely amaze me by your determination and dedication, especially with all you’ve been going through.  Love you so much!  And without further ado, here’s the list of the amazing participants who are all incredibly gifted and talented writers.  Please take some time to visit their websites and get to know these wonderful bloggers.  Oh, and if I missed adding someone, please leave me a comment and let me know.  ~M
