A Blog Dedicated to Answering Journal Prompts by Tom Slatin

I wanted to write more. I wanted to write things that I could share with other people in an easy and fun way. The trouble is coming up with topics has never been my strong suit. I need direction… focus… and occasionally a muse. And then I stumbled upon the website of Tom Slatin and his list of 80 Journal Writing Prompts. I found them interesting, clever, and inspirational. As I read through them I had to fight the urge to begin writing out responses to them immediately. And it is because I was thusly inspired, I have created this blog to do just that: To answer each of these prompts with what I hope turns out to be a contemplative response. I’m not entirely sure what that will ultimately look like, but I feel confident that it will be a worthwhile exercise for myself and perhaps something that you, dear reader, will find more entertaining than not.  I can assure you some responses will be nice and lengthy, perhaps even thoughtful, whereas some will be a bit more concise and some you will likely find peculiar. That said, I am wide open for thoughts, criticisms and direction. Thank you for your time and attention. Enjoy!
