Really Good Creative Writing Prompts--for Exercising Your Inner Author

This week I've been teaching on retreat at MISA West, Tanque Verde Ranch, in the beautiful Rincon Mountains outside Tucson. Along with the workshops and coaching each day, I always offer creativity-stretching sessions before dinner. A perennial favorite at these retreats is freewriting hour.  

We gather before dinner to write from selected prompts.  Each gets ten minutes, and writers are encouraged to let the flow take them wherever it will.  Sometimes, the best ideas come from freewrites.  Even whole books can be born from a single freewrite.

If you'd like to explore something new this week, allow ideas in that you haven't touched before, click on one of the two links below.  They list a bounty of prompts, so they could keep you busy all week--one a day, like a great vitamin for your writing.  (Or a lovely Valentine's Day card.)
