As we move from Winter to Spring our outdoor activities will increase.

One of the many outdoor activities enjoyed by people is gardening. Whether it be planting flowers or a garden to grow your favorite vegetables. As we play in the dirt we have to ask ourselves this question. A tomato, is it a fruit or vegetable or something else?


About Writing Prompts

There are several reasons writing prompts are important. They help shake Writers Block, start the thought process for a piece of flash fiction, short story or novel. Some writers who are in between writing projects will us them as a writing exercise. They know writing everyday is a way to hone and keep their skills sharp.

Thee are two types of writing prompts. Written and visual. ThunderHorse Publishing uses the visual. Why?

We all see the picture, event or person. However how we process what we see is unique to each individual.

The Writing Prompt Game

The rules are simple. All you will need is a visual writing prompt, paper and writing instrument along with a group of friends. Each person has five minutes to write a short piece about what they see, what they think happened and what the outcome will be. The winner is the person with the best story that answered all the ‘W’ questions. Who, What, When and Why along with Where ?
