Hey everyone! Long time, no post, am I right? =) I’m so excited to start posting again here on Notebooks and Novels. I have some fun things planned for the coming weeks that I think you all will enjoy, but in the meantime, here are twenty writing prompts that will unleash the story inside of you. These are prompts taken from my notebook and some songs that I’ve been listening to and loving lately. Enjoy, and happy writing! =)
