Found this neat little gem.
YearCompass is a global movement that mobilizes people to sort out their last year and plan their next one in order to have a greater awareness of their lives. New Year’s resolutions don’t work; planning your year does.
YearCompass is a booklet that helps close your year and plan the next one. Using questions and exercises rooted in psychology it takes you through the past year, then helps you turn your dreams into achievable goals.
Best part…it’s FREE! It’s not too late to start planning and executing your ideas, projects, and ambitions.
Check it out. https://yearcompass.com/

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.
Oh, the different ways this could go. Which description isn’t true? Why are these the qualities that will keep her alive? Is this a post-apocalyptic world after a cataclysmic outbreak? Is she being harvested by the hostile alien super force that has taken over Earth? Or is this a screening for a dating reality show?
Share your ideas and/or post your creations, even if it’s just a line or two. I’d love to hear them.

I saw this website called The Written Word on social media recently and bookmarked it to look at later. Glad I did. It’s an onomatopeia dictionary. I had no idea I needed one, but clearly I do. What a fun, handy site.
Onomatopeia is a word formed by imitating the sound or action something makes. Think hiss, buzz, boom, argh, bay, arf, cackle, drone, splat, clink, etc. As writers, we strive to have readers experience our stories as if they are actually there. We do this with creative uses of words. The sounds some words make aid in visualizing what’s happening. Such as a cat caterwauling just before its lightsaber ignites with a pssshhew and engages in battle. Ffffkrrrrshhzzzwooooom..woom..woooom!

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.
Welcome to 2019. Ready or not, it is here.
What lay beyond this door? Could it be the way into an enchanted garden? A door to the past, the future, Narnia? What is the light shining through the keyhole? Is it a promise of hope for the prisoner on this side? Or is it light from a rising fire, trapping whoever is there? When it is opened can it never be closed? What do you see when you look through the keyhole?
What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.
