There’s not really much you can say about a “Writing Prompt” except that it is meant to activate an idea in your head when you read the prompt.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t!
Many time I’ve read a Writing Prompt and absolutely nothing came to mind.
Other times, I’ve got an idea coming to me almost before I finish reading the prompt.
Writing Prompts Are Meant To:

If it is published on my blog, “YOU WILL RETAIN COPYRIGHTS” to your work.

I appreciate it if you share my blog with your social media friends and associates. You can share from the social media icons on the left or at the top and bottom of the post.
Wishing everyone a fabulous second week in the New Year.
