Writing prompts are an excellent way to stay in good writing shape. Great sportsmen and women train every day to be the best they can be. Writers need to find a way to be as disciplined.

Writing leads to more writing, and if you set aside 30 minutes a day for a prompt you will be more confident about your writing. It will also inspire you.
