Speaking of Prompts…

chimp01…I’ve found Twitter to be a great resource for writers. The 140 character limit goes a long way to help folks edit their own thoughts before presenting them to the world. Aside from that and the various writers’ blogs, there are the prompts—the word games akin to literary stretching exercises, warm-ups and calisthenics (and often just a chance to wisecrack).

It all started with Writer.ly. Their six-word story setups sucked me in and I got addicted to it. Then came (in no chronological order) Liz Geisert, Kelsye Nelson, How We’ll Prompt, Tablo Prompts, iAuthor and, oh yeah, Nest and Story. If I’ve forgotten anyone, forgive me; I promise I’ll update.
