If you follow me on Facebook & Twitter, you would know I love playing with writing prompts – it’s a good way to tap into my unconscious knowledge. Starting Dec 1, 2017, I am now offering a Prompt A Day on my blog.

Ariel’s List

I am also offering a free monthly list of Poetry Prompts; these are different than

my daily prompts offered. This is available on Pinterest.
