Writing Wednesday Series

The #WritingWednesday series, igniting in Fall of 2022 on Instagram alongside the debut of the Poems, Prompts, and Purpose Card Deck. These videos were meticulously crafted to kindle inspiration to writers of all levels and all types. The cards are catalysts, sparking ideas and providing direction. As the series unfolded, it expanded beyond mere prompts, embracing a diverse array of writing styles and interactive games to share with the writing community.

In celebration of #NaPoMo 2024, I am excited to announce that these videos will now find their eternal home on this page, ensuring writers everywhere have perpetual access to writing inspiration, motivation and guidance, and best of all, it is completely free of charge. I do not own any rights to the music in these video. See credits for each below. Enjoy!
