Entry Prompts for the Blocked Writers (1-100)

Sometimes I just look at the blank page on my screen and think … about anything and everything I want to say but somehow it doesn’t get from my head to the page.  So much rattling around in there I can’t even manage to get one single thought together.
So I decided to spend some time surfing around the internet for ideas and habits I can use to organize my thoughts. I found – to my pleasant surprise – that I am not alone and other blog writers need prompting or topic suggestions to get the juices flowing.

The result was a list of 800+ journal prompts that can be used by anyone to get the writers block unblocked. I will post about 100 a day until I can get them all out to you. I know there will be repeats, similar entries but overall they are thought provoking and should help get you over the hump.
Enjoy!
