Presenting: 7 Words to Inspire! We pick words so you don’t have to.

I’m one of those writers that is always wanting a chance to sit down and type out all my thoughts in a largely eloquent way. Usually when I’m supposed to be doing anything else (including working, *cough cough*) and often when I have no time but a few minutes. When I do finally get a chance to clear out a part of my schedule to WRITE, I end up staring at a blank screen until I wander over to the internet instead.

Faced with the fact that I do well with prompts, I figured, why not start prompting myself? I can think of things to write about when I’m not supposed to be writing, maybe I can harness that and save it for later.

And then I thought, why not share it with others? So I present to you all, 7 Words to Inspire, or #7words. Each week, I will have seven words designed to prompt you. They will be posted daily on my twitter, @jennibean212, and collectively each week right here.

They can be used to make art, or to spark conversation. They can be used all together, or one at a time. It’s up to you. I plan on utilizing each one somehow, but I leave it open so that the end result is that we keep creating.

But wait, there’s more!

I want to see your art! If you submit your art to me in the comments below, or to my twitter, I’ll retweet and feature here as well. My favorite will even win the banana of AWESOME.
