Tipsy At The Toy Store

2nd December 2018

A Month of Ginspiring Writing Prompts

26th September 2018

You guys know that Math isn’t my thing, but I just counted backwards, and I think this is my  (really our) fourth writing prompt post. They’ve been coined ginspiring writing prompts, and I find that um, entirely acceptable. I posted the first prompt in the hopes of connecting with other writers and flexing my old writing muscles. Lately, the only writing I’ve done is for blog posts. The best ones happen with a cup of coffee and something to say.…
