    I wrote my first story using the writing prompt list and I was surprised at how easily the story came to me. I posted my story to a few websites and a subreddit, and I’m shocked at how positive the feedback is. I never really thought of myself as a writer and certainly never thought I was creative enough to write, but this has changed my mind, already. I look forward to working my way through the other 30 prompts this month.

    I love this one. Day 10 particularly struck me.

    However??? D.D.S.R. #29??? I googled it and got Debt and Debt Service Reduction and also Double Dutch Speed Relay, the latter with more promise than the former.

    But I’d appreciate clarification, please.

      We’re glad you like the prompts. Thank you!
      It can mean whatever you want it to mean. You can make up your own D.D.S.R.
      Happy Writing!
