Today’s Writing Prompt: Road Trip!
I really don’t have any memorable road trips that were taken just for the reason of having a road trip. My trips usually have a specific purpose like a visit or to attend an event. I have always wanted to just jump in the car to no particular destination. I would love to take a few weeks of just traveling to see the country.
For today’s writing prompt, write about an epic road trip. Get very detailed. Who will go with you? What will pack? What vehicle will you drive? For how long will you be traveling?
Have fun with it. Maybe it will inspire you to make it a reality.
Today’s Writing Prompt: Collaborate!
Today’s writing prompt came to me this morning as I was taking my son to school. My son shares my love of reading and writing. He is presently working on a story and he asked for my input. While we were talking, we both mentioned how we wanted to write a horror story. I suggested a collaboration. He was so excited and so was I! I think this would be a great bonding experience.
You may not have a child or someone close who shares your passion for writing, but check just in case. Consider a collaboration with a friend or family member. It could be a fan fiction or just something for fun that no one else will see.
Today’s Writing Prompt: Use your phone.
I am constantly commenting on how much we are tied to our phones both literally and figuratively.

I must admit that I spend a great deal of time on my phone as well. So for this writing prompt, we will put our phones to use.
