31 Days Of Prompts: Wordsnstuff January Writing Challenge



– You all wanted a 31 days of prompts challenge for the month of January, so here is a writing prompt for every day of the first month of the year! If you use one or all of these prompts in a post on Tumblr, please tag it with #wordsnstuffjanuary so I can read your writing! At the beginning of February, I’ll pick my three favorite pieces to shout out on the blog! Enjoy!

Disclaimer: some of these are obviously more time consuming than others so if you need to switch some days around to fit your schedule that is totally understandable. The goal is to complete one every single day, so if writing day 24′s prompt on day 13 will make that possible, by all means, do you.
