Writing prompts surprise the brain by putting forth a new phrase or idea to explore in writing. Change pronouns, substitute words, tailor details to make these prompts your own. The only rule is to write uninhibited: get all that roiling, lovely, interesting stuff out on the page. For more prompts and creative ways to use them, please check out The Creative Year.
