WRITING & CREATIVITY PROMPTS

There's nothing like the thrill of being in the creative flow, but sometimes tapping into the muse is challenging. That's why we're sharing regular writing & creativity prompts to help you get the creative juices flowing.

Use these prompts to write a flash fiction piece, a short story, poem, or novel. Use them to create a video or podcast. Draw or paint a picture, weave it into a rug, make hand-puppets and act them out...how you use them is up to you! 

Today's Prompt:

Imagine your own country and write down everything you can think of about it: its size, geography, terrain, climate, population, currency, flora and fauna, politics, etc. Create a postage stamp for this country and a postcard to send from it. Keep going if you want, creating illustrations, maps, or stories about it.
