January Grab Bag



Full Details


Welcome to the first Grab Bag of 2021! Created by WtW writers, these one-liners will cast you into a stream of words, no guidelines needed—the aim is to write as much as possible without writer's block getting in the way. 

Please copy and paste the mini prompt(s) that you’re responding to into the writing field.

  • Write something inspired by a favorite painting. (by Cranevarnish)
