If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook, you may have noticed we post daily writing prompts to get those writing muscles flexing on the regular. As Spring is a time for renewal and new growth, we thought we’d share a few prompts on the blog to celebrate this wonderful season.

And checkout some of our staff-curated writing playlists, or our podcast The Write Process, if you’re looking for more inspiration.
