Day One – #write365

To ease myself back into writing everyday for 365 days, I’m in search of a good flash fiction prompt site. I just finished up a rather large and stressful project at work (literally – the show site launched today), and we’re currently iced-in until at least Friday here in the ATL.

Want to egg me on? Add me as a NanoWriMo Buddy!

There’s a reason we call it “Meeting Monday” around here… Today’s the first day of National Novel Writing Month, and I’m already behind because I needed to get to sleep before midnight last night. I had such grand plans for redesigning this site to be more about writing
