Here you will find writing prompts to jump start your imagination and inspire you as a fiction writer. Every Wednesday I post a first line which you can use as a starting point to write your own fabulous, tragic, magical, hilarious and hopefully award-winning short story. Want more? Check back often for other prompts designed to keep the words flowing. You'll also find the occasional author interview, book review or musing from me as I share my own journey as a writer.

Thank you for not making more of the "River of Stones" about snow and ice. We just had 8 to 9 inches of snow here today (suburb of Rochester NY) and I'm getting tired of shoveling my driveway and seeing more snow. Picked up your book this evening. Haven't had a chance to start reading it yet.

Mario ~ You poor folks on the other side of the lake always get more snow than we do here in Toronto - the news is always showing storms in Buffalo and Rochester. But we have got quite a bit of snow (for Toronto) at the moment. I'm sick of trying to walk down slippery sidewalks.
Glad the book made its way safely into your hands. Hope you like it.
My wife and I haven't been to Toronto, in the winter, for awhile. The trip back is usually not fun. Usually summer trips for plays, CNE, and other attractions. The last time we discovered the Hanger. I thought we had hit most of the attractions, including with our kids when they were younger, dozens of times. It's easier than NYC to get to and move around in. We have friends in Brampton and Markham.
As far as the book, I'm only through Part 1 but I love it, which is surprising me. My book of choice is normally science fiction. You paint the images so well that it is an easy and enjoyable read. Hoping the rest of the book is the same.
Okay, Mario - my funny (and rather embarrassing story). First, I am very glad you and your family enjoy Toronto. It is a nice city. So I was reading your message and all the attractions you've visited and then you mentioned the Hanger. Well, I didn't know what the Hanger was. So, when my husband came home from work I asked him about it. Turns out the Hanger was formerly a building belonging to the company he works for (he's in the aerospace industry) and he's talked about it plenty! I managed with one question to reveal that I don't know the major attractions in a city I've lived in for over 20 years and that I don't listen to my husband very closely when he talks about work! Oops! I suppose that's what happens when you live with a writer who spends most of her time daydreaming. lol.
Hope you are well!
