still here, banshee screams

Writing Prompts link page

By the way, while the daily prompts I’ve been following are the Ragtag Daily Prompts, I have noticed a proliferation of other daily prompts sites so I’ve been updating my Writing Prompts links page.  As I’ve had the page for a while now and some people might just like to see the latest updates, I’ve started an update list on a post on the days I update them like my latest update.  That’s new.  I didn’t used to post updates. The Writing Prompts links page is not just daily prompts but any writing prompts like flash fiction, poetry or whatever.
