→Ok, friends, here we go again. Another year, another series of daily journal prompts. I do this because I believe it is important for writers to try to think in the narrative every day, to consider story and its possibilities, and this little exercise of finding photos and putting words with them helps me do that. Even if we don’t write something we think matters each day, this narrative thinking is good creative practice. And by the way, I love hearing from you when this helps get your writing going; please feel free to share links and stories in the comments section of this site. As always, I so appreciate my regular readers and the stories they send: Lindsay, Judith, Cynthia, Susan, and others. Happy new year! And happy writing! Thanks for reading. -PMc←
