Description

Are you a creative writer whose Muse has gone into a sputter? Wondering: "What should I write about today?" Or are you a teacher with a classroom or workshop filled with eager scribes who need fresh prompts? Wonder no more!


What are they?
• A series of 30 all-new prompts on handy-dandy, beautiful cards. One varied prompt per card. Some include quotations, some situations, others a title or a setting.
• Sure to inspire fiction, essays, poetry, and more!
• Very portable! Slip into your pocket, purse, backpack, or tote and carry them with you to write in cafes, waiting rooms, on your commute, or wherever the day takes you!



How do I use the cards?
There are a multitude of uses, both for individuals and groups. Peruse these 11 suggested uses, which include:
• Shuffle and pick 1 card at random each day for a month. 3 Wild Cards included.
• Shuffle and pick 2 or 3. Combine into one draft.
• Choose 1 for your class or writing group. Each writer pens for 15 minutes and shares. Alternately, each writer can choose 1 card.
• Workshop!
• Meet a writing friend. Both pick a card and write for 20 minutes without stopping. Share. Repeat.
• Game night. Use singly or on teams.
• Use on your commute.
• Use during lunch breaks.
• Take for a spin during daily free-writes when you are without ideas.
• Use in waiting rooms.
• Teaching a seminar or class? For all age groups, middle school and up. 


Perfect for every occasion!
The holidays are upon us! These cards would be just the thing for:
• Christmas/stocking stuffer/Secret Santa
• Hanukkah
• Kwanzaa
• Birthday gift for the budding young or young-at-heart author who has it all
• Anniversaries
• Class/workshop
• YOU! Invest in your writing practice. 
