Hey boys and girls. Can you believe we’ve entered a whole new year? Holy crap. Time flies when you’re not paying attention. But I’m hoping to go into this new year with a whole new outlook on my writing.
I’ve been given a huge and wonderful opportunity. I am now the weekly prompt provider at a Medium.com publication called Promptly Written. I love this publication as it’s all about getting the creative juices flowing and that’s how I roll. I’m a huge fan of writing prompts, but it’s the name of the site that first grabbed my attention. Many, many years ago, I ran a site called The Prompt Writer and offered up a huge array of writing prompts twice a month. I then ended up writing an e-book called Written Promptly Everyday that had 365 writing prompts in it. I lost the book and can’t find even a shred of it, but the name of the Medium publication screamed at me and I was hooked.
For me, this is a way to get back to my online writing roots. I’ve always had a weird obsession with coming up with ideas to write about, then decided to pass some of those ideas on to others who might actually use them. I have to admit, I would only use maybe a handful even though I’d just filled up an entire notebook. I didn’t like the idea that they’d just be lying in that notebook, all sad and lonely, so I gave them away. And I loved it. I was shocked at the number of people who actually came looking for one of my ideas and got creative because of them. It was amazing.
So now, I get to do it for a lot more people every week. But what’s more? The response I’ve gotten from the writers has just astounded me. I would have been cool with a couple of people saying “thanks” or something along those lines, but everyone seems to be over the moon about my ideas. Mine. Who would have thought?
If you’re a writer on Medium.com, I invite you to come over to Promptly Written and see what all the fuss is about If you’re not a writer on Medium, I invite you to change that. I’ve been doing it for almost 4 years now and love it.
Wish me luck and I send out happy vibes to each of you. Get inspired. Find something to write about. Do something that makes your soul sing. You’ll be amazed at how wonderful it will make you feel.
Happy Freaking New Year
