52 Weeks | 52 Prompts


Let’s just get straight to it. This year, I want to challenge myself… In every way possible.
When it comes to writing, I’ve always been passionate about the craft, but I never seem to challenge myself, so my writing style gets… well… sort of stale. This morning, while scrolling through my emails, I came across this article from Journal Buddies and it spoke to me. I need to be taken out of my comfort zone and write about topics that are a bit unfamiliar. Topics I wouldn’t normally write about. So that is why I’ve taken 52 of the most interesting writing prompts I could find and created a list. Some fiction, some real life situation, poems. I have them all. One for every week of 2019!
This should be fun.

2. At that moment, she should’ve left
3. Describe a character who is loved by everyone. Describe the character and what is so lovely about them, but end with a secret or flaw that not everyone sees
