Not only do I have fabulous writing prompts (so no excuses for not picking up your pen this weekend) but you can cruise on over to writersinspired for another eye-opening author interview. This author, Sybil Baker, speaks about the writing process, why she chose a small press to publish her book and her history at Virginia Tech.

On with the fun…

  1. Write a Rescue story involving a crystal ball
  2. Write about a character succumbing to temptation
