There's nothing like writing to make you feel like a writer again. With the Writer's Pick-Me-Up, you'll:


Ease the pressure.


Get back in the flow.

Writing has a way of leading to more writing. Sometimes you just need to write for one reason only: fun.


Have a place to start.

Ten minutes doesn't sound like much, and that's the point. You can do almost anything for 10 minutes, so you'll show up.

No need to worry what to write. Each prompt gives you a new idea to explore, and works for fiction or memoir.
