Updated on April 4, 2020

First off, thank you for visiting my hub of writing prompts. I hope you'll be able to use something here for inspiration. If you do, PLEASE let me know. I'd love to know that I've helped you!

Finding the right topic can be quite time consuming and very overwhelming, sometimes. I'm sure you can agree with that. And then there are those darned keywords - the words that help with your SEO (Search Engine Optimization (how people find your article on the internet.))

Maybe these Writing Prompts will Help!

Two for the price of one! (And one is free, so you do the math.) That's right, within each of the writing prompts that I've provided here, I've included a keyword phrase that could help with your search engine optimization efforts.
