Glory Be! Prompt Journal (2014)

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 30, 2013, 3:42 PM

As part of :iconglory-be-project:, I'm going to be keeping this journal posted as a compilation of the prompts you have sent me! 
If you want to join in, just send me a note or comment with a link to a song you like on youtube, an image you are inspired by, a poetry form or another sort of challenge...or a general writing prompt! 

I'll be collecting prompts probably right up to the end of the challenge, as they help me write every day, so any ideas you have--fling them at me! 

Er...just don't cover them in poo, k?
