                                                                            see on Amazon There are 366 writing prompts here – one for each day of the year in 2020. Some are short and pithy, others are inspired by obscure days e.g. 16 February Do a Grouch a Favour Day, and some go into more detail on an aspect of writing craft. There are series that go over a number of days, e.g. creative writing in other languages, working with postcards, writing for children and writing historical fiction. A few prompts are about works in progress and several give you the choice of working with a text you have already created, creating something new or even editing a completed piece of work. There are also invitations to read. But every prompt gives you the opportunity to write something as well. These prompts were put together by writers published by the Bridge House, CafeLit and Chapeltown imprints, and their friends.

In this follow-up to her "From Light to Dark and Back Again", Allison will take you back in time, into some truly criminal minds, into fantasy worlds, and show you how motherhood looks from the viewpoint of a dragon. Enjoy the journey!   "Allison Symes can pack more into 100 words than most people can into 1000. Politicians take note!" "A lovely little collection of quirky and often surprising stories and poems. Fairy godmothers who aren't what they first appear."   Fabulous collection of poems and flash fiction. Some made me giggle, some made me gasp, all surprised me!
