January Writing Challenges

Each month I write up a month's worth of writing ideas. prompts and challenges. I do this in order to help other writers or bloggers who are having writer's block to come up with something to write about.  I do it as it gives me a monthly goal to write about something different and unique every day. 

If you take one of my ideas, I ask you to share this post that way others can find them too.

  2. I've about given up onl Writing Challenges, since they keep me from using my own ideas that don't fit. They make nice writing prompts when you can't come up with an idea.

  3. Great prompts. My critique partners and I may use a couple of them at our meetings. Sometimes we have time to spare after critiquing each other and we do writing prompts. These will be help us have a more varied choice.

  4. Good ideas Sandy. I might use some of them. I will tell you when I have. Thanks.
