I still consider myself new in the blogging world, having been doing this less than a year. As I noted earlier this week, I’ve really come to enjoy the daily prompts, both for the writing challenge–come up with something! and even more so for the community I’ve found. I’m not happy about its departure, and as is so often the case, I wasn’t consulted. Darn. Oh well.
I am not alone in wanting to continue with some sort of a daily prompt. Many readers have suggested that they would like to continue as well, and seven of us have agreed to generate prompts once a week. Tracy of Reflections of an Untidy Mind suggested Ragtag Daily Prompt as a new name, and befitting our willing volunteer status, with variable skill sets, I think its a good one.
So here’s what you can expect going forward (today’s prompt is retrospective, and I’m mostly being prospective): A daily prompt should post every morning, starting tomorrow, June 1. Currently, they arrive at 6 am mountain daylight time (which is 12 noon Greenwich mean time), and I’m suggesting that this continue. That said, some of your new prompters live in very different time zones, I think we are from Europe, the US, and Australia, so flexibility may be important. I’m listing the prompters along with their days and their sites below. If you follow each of the prompters, then you will have immediate access to their prompt.
Tuesday: Lorna, Gin and Lemonade
Wednesday: Curious Cat
Thursday: Tracy, Reflections of an Untidy Mind
Friday: Steph, Curious Steph
Saturday: Mary, Cactus Haiku
Sunday: Martha, I’m a Writer, Yes I am!
We will use ragtag daily prompt as a tag as well as including it in the title, so if you search by that tag, you should find something.
