Kick Off Your Week Writing Prompt

air freshenerI thought it would be fun to kick off each week with a writing prompt. Whether you’re a professional writer, an aspiring one, or a dabbler, why not join in? Every month I’ll pick a random winner from the comments I collect.

Most importantly, have fun!
